Christmas in Hollywood 🎉


Santa Claus Lane in Hollywood, 1932 and Claudette Colbert unveils a wreath with her portrait.

Jane Greer and her wish list, including Cary Grant and a mink coat!

I might fast forward to the end of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, just to see Alistair Sim as Scrooge turn over a new leaf.



One of my Christmas films will be SHOP AROUND THE CORNER,
A heartwarming story and great cast. Love the trailer above.

James Stewart – Margaret Sullavan – Frank Morgan – Felix Bressart – Joseph Schildkraut – Sara Haden – Inez Courtney – William Tracy -Charles Smith.

  1. Thank you so much for all your posts. You have helped me get through this horrible year.

    A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you and all your readers. 🎄

    • Thanks so much, Steve. Doing the blog has kept me going during this awful year. Also I’ve enjoyed reading so many of my fellow bloggers – so thank you, Colin, Mike, Aurora, Laura, Paddy Lee, Jacqueline, Annette , Karen – so many!

  2. Joseph Schildkraut is in one of my favourite Xmas films The Cheaters 1945. A joy from start to finish with a great cast including Ona Munson, Eugene Pallette and the great Billie Burke.
    An A film from Republic but that title makes it sound like a crime drama! It’s on You Tube.

  3. I see that “The Shop Around the Corner” is getting a remastered Blu-ray release by Warner Archive – I’m sure it will look spiffing.
    And a Merry Christmas and hopefully a better New Year to everyone here. Vienna does a great job!
