4.0 out of 5 stars A Celebration Of Christmas Movies From The Silent Era Up To The Present, December 28, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AMC American Movie Classics: Great Christmas Movies - Celebrating the Best Christmas Films of All Time (Hardcover)
Christmas movies are without a doubt one of my favourite movie theme areas and I'm sure I'm correct in saying that the festive season for many people would not be complete without the regular screenings of many of the well known classics. Each year come December 1st I eagerly look forward to working my way through an ever growing list of films whose main theme is centred around this most special of holidays. Christmas movies have been produced in one form or another since the silent era began and there are now so many memorable and greatly loved Christmas themed classics out there that come back each year via television and now DVD to charm us, allow us to shed a tear, and importantly to remind us in this cynical present day of the true meaning of Christmas. Classics such as "It's a Wonderful Life", "White Christmas", "Miracle on 34th Sreet", and of course the immortal "A Christmas Carol", in its countless versions automatically come to mind as the standout films in this genre however there are so many other less well known films centred around Christmas that deserve to be better remembered. In his wonderful book "Great Christmas Movies", author Frank Thompson examines in detail these famous classics while also managing to bring back into the spotlight many obscure Christmas films now largely forgotten. His book takes the reader on an entertaining look at the famous, the infamous, the obscure, and the down right weird film titles that can be included under the theme of Christmas movies and which for all their own unique reasons have become an essential part of so many people's festive celebrations.
