Tonight we all await Santa. But some of us will stil watch old, classic films. Which ones to choose?

There are the old standbys — It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, The Bishop’s Wife, the various versions of A Christmas Carol.   There are the “newer” classics — films such as The Holiday, The Santa Clause, The Christmas Story, Home Alone.

There’s Christmas in Connecticut, The Holiday Affair, The Man Who Came to Dinner, Remember the Night.

Well, we have an off beat selection for you this year. We like Holiday Inn (skip the remake/update White Christmas). Great songs, great performances.

Try The Lemon Drop Kid, a Bob Hope film which introduced the standard “Silver Bells.” Or Debbie Reynolds in Susan Slept Here.

And how about a Christmas western? Check out John Wayne‘s version of The Three Godfathers.
