When the co-workers of an ambitious clerk trick him into thinking he has won $25,000 in a slogan contest, he begins to use the money to fulfill his dreams. What will happen when the ruse is discovered?
A young man in love with a girl from a rich family finds his unorthodox plan to go on holiday for the early years of his life met with skepticism by everyone except for his fiancée's eccentric sister and long-suffering brother.
Just before Christmas, Lee Leander is caught shoplifting. It is her third offense. She is prosecuted by John Sargent. He postpones the trial because it is hard to get a conviction at Christmas time. But he feels sorry for her and arranges for her bail, and ends up taking her home to his mother for Christmas. Surrounded by a loving family (in stark contrast to Lee's own family background) they fall in love. This creates a new problem: how do they handle the upcoming trial?Written by

Last of Preston Sturgis' scripts that he also did not direct himself. Sturgis was upset at the cuts director Mitchell Leisen made to his script for this film, both before and during production, that he vowed to direct his own from then on. See more »
The hand out of nowhere.
It is about 30 minutes into the movie. Barbara and Fred wake up in the middle of a field full of cows. One cow puts her head into the car and wakes them. They decide to milk the cow for breakfast. The cow's head remains inside the car while being milked. Barbara is at the back end of the cow while Fred is sitting on the car's running board with both hands busy milking the cow. At this point the camera shows the cow inside the car chewing a hat. Then a mysterious hand appears under the cow's jaw holding the cow in place. When the scene returns to Barbara and Fred you can see it wasn't either one of them. See more »
Now there's nothing as dangerous as a square shooter. If all men were like you there wouldn't be any nice girls left.

When you think of holiday classics you might not think of "Remember The Night." You may have never even heard of it. But it is a must see and as good as "Miracle on 34th St." or "It's a Wonderful life."
Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck star perfectly together (before they re-temed for "Double Indemnity.")
He is a prosecutor for the district attorney, she a shoplifter who gets caught stealing some jewelry just before Christmas. With the Christmas weekend holiday approaching, he arranges her bail so she won't be locked up over the holiday. Thinking he only did this so she would, um you know ... she shows up at his apartment as he is preparing to go home for the holiday. He convinces her that he's not after her uh ... you know.
Over dinner they discover they are both from Idaho, "how'd you like to go home for Christmas?. he asks her. He offers to drop her off at her folks on the way to his.
A road trip, comedy, drama, funny and likable supporting characters, and love and tears follow. Also, a wonderful moral to the story. All this without bit of sex, a word of profanity, violence or an explosion. This picture is for all ages. It won't offend or insult anyone.
Don't miss it.
