I found this DVD at Kmart for $3. It came with a dvd of Christmas music. I figured for the price I would take a chance.
It was a made for TV movie from 1986 based on the novelette "London Snow". It stars Katherine Helmond, veteran actor Sid Caesar, a very young Melissa Joan Hart, and Kimble Joyner. It won an Emmy in 1987 for cinematography and an ASC award in 1988. It's only 48 minutes long.

It seems to be set in the 1950's. Mrs Mutterance (Helmond)is a widow who runs a candy shop in the lower level of a building where she lives on the 2nd floor with her 2 adopted children (Joyner and Hart). Her mean spirited Landlord, Mr Snyder(Caesar)tells her she has two weeks to vacate the building 2 days before Christmas. After a blizzard, Mr. Snyder turns up missing. Mrs. Mutterance and children go looking for him. The moral of the story is helping others even when they are not nice to you.

Melissa Joan Hart is very cute in this movie and I thought all of the actors were good, but I thought this presentation fell short of a holiday classic. I think it is a better production than the made for tv movies are today. Not as silly and shallow. Well worth the $3 I paid for it. This is the 2nd year I watched it.

Excellent short story and great mini movie. I haven't noticed it on TV in recent years and wanted to purchase it on DVD (my VHS tape wore out). Great for the entire family with a worthy lesson. It's an annual must at our house for Christmas.

Nice heartwarming story to enjoy around Christmas time. This is an old movie that I enjoyed many years ago, and being a Cid Caesar fan, it's nice to have my own copy to share with family.

Order this only if you're desperate for a holiday movie you haven't already seen and you're willing to settle for extremely mediocre TV fare. I'll give it credit for not reworking holiday cliches, but that's about it. The production values are spotty, the script is mawkish, and the plot painfully unexceptional.

One of my perennial favorites, we watch it every Christmas season. Katherine Helmond is so wonderfully quirky - I love her in everything she does. Sid Caesar is great as well. The kid playing Wallace tends to go OTT but it's forgivable. This is a heartwarming redemption story akin to Scrooge, great writing and direction.
