Of course you are. I'll help you pack them myself. You won't have to leave anything behind. Except your snow people, of course. We'd look pretty silly trying to get them on the train, wouldn't we?

Great holiday film and attests to the old saying "they don't make 'em like that anymore."
A great family film that's always a pleasure to watch especially during the holidays.
From the cast to the costumes and sets, director Vincente Minnelli took great pains to make this film as true to life as possible.
There are just some films you don't tire of seeing. Released in 1944, it stands the test of time and brings home a sense of nostalgia when viewed more than 60 years later.
I'm a classics fan and most films today don't even begin to compare with the sincerity, the warmth, and class this film delivers. It was filmed when the Hollywood musical was king of the box office. I recommend it to anyone who wants a diversion from the extreme in-your-face forms of entertainment like Family Guy and Beavis and Butthead reruns.
