One of the best television Christmas specials ever aired.
21 January 2000 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Just as a few others have commented, this Christmas special made a big impact on me when I saw it in 1978. Not available on video, it is a shame it is not shown every year with the other traditional Christmas movies. There is a lot of talent associated with it. In addition to the talent of the two main players Beau Bridges and Julie Harris, some great character actors make brief appearances - Strother Martin, Kim Hunter, Chill Wills and Edward Binns. This movie aired on December 17, 1978 on NBC.
