The story of a young boy who spends Christmas with his aunts in the rural south during the depression
22 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Christmas Memory and the companion film The Thanksgiving Visitor, both starring Geraldine Page, are two films which should be seen by every family during the holidays. The story of a young boy who spends Christmas with his aunts in the rural south during the depression is a warm and touching story. Unable to afford to buy Christmas presents for each other, Sook and Buddy make each other a present, which ends the film in a wonderful surprise. It is too bad that this is unavailable for the public to view for both films should be a staple for the holidays much as It's A Wonderful Life. Geraldine Page gives a touching and loving performance. The Direction, performance, Photography, locations, Production Design, are first rate.
