Young At Heart Christmas Movies



Our Favorite Christmas Movies

SCROOGE, 1970
From Bebe: I first saw Albert Finney in a movie with Audrey Hepburn: Two for the Road, 1967, and followed him ever since. His version of Scrooge, 1970, is a musical version. I grew up listening to musicals, and I love this one for Christmas, especially the touching love song: "You...You." And "Happiness". And, well just about every song--I love!
THE SNOWMAN, 1982
This is an animated film with no words, except for the very beginning. It is a magical and beautiful film. Very appropriate for youngsters!
EMMETT OTTER'S JUG-BAND CHRISTMAS, 1977
This is a Muppet's film and it is my all time favorite! The "critter's" are not only cute, but the story is a very touching one--it'll grab your heart and make you feel good.

Other Christmas/Winter stories/films: Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates; Dr. Zhivago- with Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, and Geraldine Chaplin.
What movies remind you of winter and make you feel good this time of year??
