Peter Falk at Christmas time
9 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peter Falk could be christened: Saint Christmas. He is a phenomenal character. His spirit, portrayed in each of his seasonal movies evokes such a good feeling. Isn't this what he's always done in his movies or TV shows! That's not a question. I watch any and all of his "Christmas Angels" movies every year. Actually, I watch anything he plays a part in, big or small. He makes an impact. I just want to give him and big hug and say "thank you", so much!! Each year I watch with added interest and focus, looking for new applications and direction in my own life. I like so many of the Christmas time movies, but this is surely in my top 5. I hope Halmark continues to run it each year, so that new viewers also have the experience of this very special movie.
