5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Christmas classic to enjoy year after year December 11, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
"Christmas In Connecticut" is my all-time favourite Christmas movie with just the right combination of humour, sentiment, beautiful settings, and terrific performers. I play this film every year during the week leading up to Christmas and the season would not be complete with its wonderful presence in my home.
Being a huge Barbara Stanwyck fan I would have loved this film anyway however in "Christmas In Connecticut" Barbara has never been more winning than as Elizabeth Lane, the know it all columnist for "Smart Housekeeping" magazine in New York who always, (in her reader's minds at least) can wip up the most exquisite culinary masterpieces for any occasion. Barbara was always a very honest actress and brought conviction and feeling to any role she tackled whether it be a devoted mother or a murderess. Here the focus is on comedy as the film tells the very funny story of how after winning country wide fame as the icon of "Smart Housekeeping" her deception starts to unravel as the Christmas season approaches when her publisher Alexander Yardley (a superb Sydney Greenstreet) decides he wants to boost circulation by inviting a returning war veteran to spend Christmas with Elizabeth and her family on her beautiful farm in Connecticut. The only problem here is that Elizabeth has made up everything about her supposedly ideal life, from having a husband, a child, owning a farm in the country and worst of all even being able to cook! What follows is a highly amusing tale as Elizabeth tries to avoid having her deception uncovered. Yardley with more dollars flashing in his eyes however is not easily put off and demands that the war veteran Jefferson Jones (Dennis Morgan) share in an ideal American Christmas on the farm with Elizabeth and her "family".

5.0 out of 5 stars Stanwyck at her best! November 26, 1999
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Christmas in Connecticut is a romantic comedy all of you classic movie buffs will enjoy. It centers around a single working girl (Barbara Stanwyck) who writes a cooking column for a ladies magazine. Her writing is so convincing that her boss (Sidney Greenstreet) believes it all--husband, baby, and farm in Connecticut! So he arranges to have a sailor and himself invited to spend Christmas "on her perfect farm." What to do? Here she is, a gal who can "only cook on the typewriter." Well, bring along Uncle Felix to do the cooking. All goes well until she is asked to flip a flapjack. Did she do it? Well, wait and see. This movie is full of fun and romance (the old-fashioned kind). It's a holiday treat for young and old alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not On DVD???...CAT-A-STROPH! August 20, 2005
"Christmas In Connecticut": You've already read the Amazon reviews, written in 1000 words or less, so I won't rehash the previous rehash. "Christmas In Connecticut" is 5-Star all the way. Here's why:

1) The fashions, the cars, the war bonds drive, the music, the there anything in this film that doesn't scream 1945?

2) There are more classic (and perfectly understated) one-liners than any other Christmas comedy of the era.

3) The supporting cast includes many of your favorite 1940s character actors.

4) Barbara Stanwyck!

5) It snows at all the right moments.

This is the perfect Christmas movie to watch while lounging on the Lazy Boy (the chair - not your husband) with the gift Aunt Martha sent you: the family-size can filled with carmel popcorn, cheddar cheese popcorn, and the mystery flavor you can't quite identify.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm And Charming December 20, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
From the perspective of the hectic, contemporary world in which we live, the so called "good old days" always seen so much more serene and innocent; an idyllic era gone by of which we have only memories and shadows that linger on the silver screen, as with "Christmas In Connecticut," a warm and endearing film directed by Peter Godfrey. Barbara Stanwyck stars as Elizabeth Lane, a popular "Martha Stewart" type magazine columnist who writes about life on her beloved farm in Connecticut, always with the latest recipe at the center of the story. One of her biggest fans is Alexander Yardley, played by Sidney Greenstreet, the publisher of the magazine for which she writes. Yardley has never visited her farm, and in response to an idea expressed to him in a letter from a nurse, Mary (Joyce Compton), he decides to spend an old fashioned Christmas with Elizabeth, her husband and child and, as a special guest, a certain Mr. Jefferson Jones (Dennis Morgan), a sailor just recovered from spending fifteen days at sea on a raft after his ship was torpedoed. Elizabeth of course cannot refuse her boss, but there are problems; not the least of which is the fact that she has no farm and writes her column from the comfort of a high-rise in the city. It makes for a precarious situation for her as well as her editor, Dudley Beecham (Robert shayne), as the one thing Mr. Yardley demands from his employees is total honesty. What follows is a charming and delightfully romantic comedy that transports the audience back to a seemingly more simple time and place, to share a Christmas Past where a warm hearth, good food and kindness prevail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, but wasn't impressed
I wasn't that impressed with the movie. I liked Holiday Inn and White Christmas much better. Plot is a bit dry yet this is supposed to be a classic. Worth seeing at least once.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Romantic Comedy
A good romantic comedy. Definitely a step up from most films of this type. Though the plot is a bit far fetched, it comes off because of the good acting, especially that of Barbara... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars which got an academy award for being the best Short in 1946
The movie is cute and kind of silly. But the reason we bought this is because it has a short film after the movie, which got an academy award for being the best Short in 1946. Read more
