Christmas at the Movies: The Classics, The Best, and a Few of the Worst – clip

Marc Lapadula / Yale University

As the Holiday Season rolls around, we all have our own favorite Christmas-themed movies.

From the many incarnations of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, to Frank Capra’s perennially televised It’s a Wonderful Life, these beloved stories remind us (or at least try to) that there is much more to Christmas than over-commercialization and extravagant gift-giving. Sort of an ironic message, as the Christmas-themed films rolled out each year by the major studios the day after Thanksgiving have the sole mission of selling as many tickets as they can, while fiercely competing against other holiday films with a vengeance!
