Nice Look at Christmas Movies

A Night at the Movies: Merry Christmas! (2011)

*** (out of 4)

The fourth film in Turner Classic Movies' "A Night at the Movies" series takes a look at Christmas themed films and we start off with a detailed look at the countless versions of A Christmas Carol. From this point we move to Frank Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE where we learn about how it was made, it's original release and why it took so long for the film to finally catch on. The rest of the movie deals with a variety of films including THE BISHOP'S WIFE, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, NATIONAL LAMPOON'S Christmas VACATION, BAD SANTA, GREMLINS and even stuff like SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT and BLACK Christmas get a quick mention. There's also a small portion of screen time devoted to A Christmas STORY and Robert Mitchum's daughter talks about waking up in the middle of the night and discovering HOLIDAY AFFAIR. Overall this is a step above the first two films in the series but at the same time it's doubtful viewers familiar with these films are going to learn anything new. I mean, it's probably a safe bet that most people know about the history of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE so we really don't learn anything new here but it was still nice seeing Karolyn Grimes talking about the production of this film as well as THE BISHOP'S WIFE with Cary Grant and Loretta Young. Another nice story involved Mitchum's daughter discovering HOLIDAY AFFAIR, which is certainly one of the most up and coming cult films from the Christmas era. Another major plus is that we get interviews with Chevy Chase, Joe Dante, Margaret O'Brien, Chazz Palminteri, Deborah Raffin, Zack Ward, Brian Henson and several others. While this film isn't going to teach you very much it's at least charming in its own right and lets us see some interviews with those who made the movies.
