Great Christmas Movie Moments

All of these movies are classics, and here are some of the highlights.
This adorable Nativity play is endearingly natural and the enjoyment we see in Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman seems entirely authentic. The play’s dialogue was indeed made up by the children themselves, with the lead played by the son of the film’s musical director, not an actor.
George Bailey tries so hard to resist falling in love with Mary but when they are so close, he just can’t help it.
A Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas story, and the Mr. Magoo version with songs by the team from “Funny Girl” is one of my favorite versions. Here the Cratchit family celebrates with joy.
Two ex-GIs turned successful entertainers pay tribute to the General who did so much for them.
Any scene from this classic is worth including on a list of best Christmas movie moments, but I’m going to go with the very sweet final scene, with the family finding itself in a Chinese restaurant after their dinner suffers a catastrophe.
A little girl who does not believe in Santa Claus learns he might be real when she sees Kris Kringle (Oscar winner Edmund Gwenn) with a war orphan who does not speak English.
Yes, it would have been so much more sensible if she just told him the truth. But we still love the ending of “An Affair to Remember.”
This is just plain adorable!
