A heartwarming holiday classic about a family who is down on their luck at Christmas time. Shortly before Christmas, they move into an apartment where Rupert the squirrel lives in the attic rafters and acts as the family's guardian angel not only saving Christmas, but changing their lives forever. Enlivened with an unforgettable love story between Terry Moore (Mighty Joe Young) and Tom Drake (Meet Me in St. Louis). Rupert the Squirrel (created using George Pal's Academy Award winning animation) will charm young and old alike. Jimmy Durante shines when he sings well-loved Christmas carols in the evocative voice that made him one of America's recording legends. Digitally restored and in color for the first time and includes a special audio commentary by star Terry Moore.

Here's what you get in this bargain-priced DVD:
This is a one-disc package containing a single-sided disc. The movie is presented in both the original black and white as well as a digitally restored colorized version. Both versions are presented in full frame format with a running time of 1:29:23.
Subtitles are available in English only.
There is also a "commentary" version of the colorized edition of the film where Legend Films' President Barry Sanders talks with co-star Terry Moore who shares her thoughts and memories throughout the film. She provides interesting commentary, but there is so much of their commentary going on that you really can't watch the film AND enjoy the commentary simultaneously. Watch the film first, then watch the commentary version. [There is no information on when the commentary track was recorded. However, since this Legend Films edition was released in 2003, it's a pretty safe bet that the commentary track was recorded that same year or the year before.(Terry Moore was born in 1929.)]
"A Christmas Wish" may not be in the same league as "Holiday Inn" or "It's a Wonderful Life," but it is a heartwarming story for a cold winter's night. RECOMMENDED
About the colorized version I can't comment, having no interest in it. Though I must say one reviewer's comment that the movie should have been made in color is so true. On the other hand, the b&w print(s) probably survived better than any color ones would have.
