Storyline

Elizabeth is the star of a successful cooking show and author of several cookbooks. Alexander, her manager, sees a heroic forest ranger named Jefferson on the television news, saying he has lost his cabin in a fire and wishes he could get a home-cooked Christmas dinner. Alexander arranges for Elizabeth to do a special live show on Christmas, where she will cook a Christmas dinner for Jefferson. In reality, Elizabeth can't cook and trying to keep Jefferson and the viewing public from finding out may be a little difficult, especially on a live show.

Goofs

(possibly intentional error) Near the beginning, when the Thanksgiving episode is being shot and Elizabeth pulls the freshly browned turkey out of the oven (after it had supposedly been cooking for 4 hours), she rests her right hand on the glass baking dish while she raises a wine glass to toast her TV audience with her left hand. Alex would surely have caught this mistake and made them all re-shoot the scene. See more »

Just a Pretty Bad Film
7 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are risks in doing remakes. When I saw this, I had not seen the Stanwyck film. I just found this about as dull as can be. The whole thing with trying to cook a dinner for a forest ranger and having to hide the fact that she can't cook and going through the gyrations they do, just doesn't work. Is her career really going to hit the skids because the tree guy might find out? Two really tiresome actors, Dyan Cannon and Kris Kristofferson (I like his music) walk through their roles and produce something they hoped would sell at Christmas time. I imagine they managed to put a few people in the seats at the time, but I doubt it has had much of a following. It's just a weak film and can fade into the woodwork of cheap collections of Christmas movies.
