Movie #12 – ChristmChristmas Eveas Eve   The steadfast belief in miracles in the face of doubts and the facts is sublimely appealing. Loretta Young carries it off with mature charm as a generous New Yorker backed by unlimited money, but limited time, and a heart that stays open to reunite a fractured family.

It’s definitely schmaltzy and slanted towards class distinction, but if you never had a fairy grandmother, this is one you can dream about.

I first saw it in 1986 and watched it annually until the video unraveled. Kept eyeing on Amazon; this year Santa made an early Christmas  stop with the DVD.

Merry Christmas! May all your Christmas dreams come true.
