Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan, Christmas in Connecticut
While I am completely and joyfully obsessed with all Christmas movies and specials – heck, if we’re being honest, I’m even obsessed with Christmas commercials! – is Christmas in Connecticut. Directed by Peter Godfrey, the wonderful film features an amazing cast that includes Barbara Stanwyck, Dennis Morgan, Sydney Greenstreet, and one of the all-time most lovable stars ever, S.Z. “Cuddles” Sakall. Hilarious, compelling, and delightful in every way, Christmas in Connecticut deserves to be mentioned alongside other greats like It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, and White Christmas.
I believe that if it were shown on television as frequently as the others, it’d soon become a household name as well…. which it absolutely deserves
