Pick your movie of the week: Christmas in the 40’s! (Dec 9-15/16)

dec-9-15-16Here are some lesser-known, but still popular, Christmas movies. I don’t know what it is about the 1940, but they cranked out a lot of Christmas flicks with some staying power. If you haven’t seen these, vote according to which plot description would appeal to you most.

The Shop Around the Corner (1940)
Two employees at a gift shop can barely stand each other, without realizing that they are falling in love through the post as each other’s anonymous pen pal. (Starring Margaret Sullavan and James Stewart)

Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
In the year leading up to the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, the four Smith daughters learn lessons of life and love, even as they prepare for a reluctant move to New York. (Starring Judy Garland)

Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
A food writer who has lied about being the perfect housewife must try to cover her deception when her boss and a returning war hero invite themselves to her home for a traditional family Christmas. (Starring Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan)
