A bit sappy, but still enjoyable.
1 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I can see that the other reviewer really loved this one. As for me, it wasn't bad but it did seem a bit sappy as well as inconsistent when it comes to one of the characters.

The film begins back around the turn of the 20th century. A mother (Anita Louise) and her two kids are regaled by the grouchy father (George Reeves). He complains and complains about imagination and kids and just comes off like a complete jerk. Soon after he leaves, the kids can have fun and they go off to build a snowman in the snow. However, something odd happens when the little girl puts a heart locket in the snowman's chest--he comes to live and becomes a weird looking hybrid--part snowman and part Edmund Gwenn. He's a nice snowman and they invite him inside to see their mother. There's more to it than this and it ends with an impossible to believe transformation where Reeves inexplicably behaves nicely. Perhaps he was an opium addict--all I know is that this just didn't make much sense. However, it was cute seeing Gwenn--he can make anything charming and fun. Not brilliant but since it's in the public domain, it's worth a look.
