Host George Murphy is celebrating Christmas with three Christmas-themed segments, showcasing individual Christmas related scenes from general movies or entire Christmas movies themselves. The first is Judy Garland singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from Meet Me in St. Louis (1944). The second is several scenes from MGM's adaptation of the Charles Dickens seasonal classic A Christmas Carol (1938). The third, building on the issue of faith and Christmas, is a scene from the new MGM release Kismet (1955) - which means faith - where Ann Blyth and Vic Damone profess their love while singing "Stranger in Paradise".

Christmas Carols

Now that you have all of your Christmas shopping done - or most of it - "MGM Parade" host George Murphy wants to keep your yuletide spirits high with some MGM film clips. First up is a slightly edited down Judy Garland singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from "Meet Me in St. Louis" (1944). Co-star Margaret O'Brien listens quietly. The bulk of the half-hour is devoted to a condensed version of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" (1938) starring Reginald Owen (as Ebenezer Scrooge), Gene Lockhart (as Bob Cratchit), Terry Kilburn (as Tiny Tim) and many others. Lastly, Ann Blyth and Vic Damone perform "Stranger in Paradise" in a clip from the current MGM attraction "Kismet" (1955). Both musical numbers were from color films, but "MGM Parade" telecast them in glorious black-and-white.

**** MGM Parade #15 (12/21/55) George Murphy ~ George Murphy, Reginald Owen, Gene Lockhart, Judy Garland
