Can we come up with a list of OLD Christmas movies we can watch on youtube? I'm talking movies from 30's 40's 50's
I know the obvious Classics, JUst looking for more Nostalgic movies.
I only have access to a Computer and right now. I need a little Christmas, right this very min.

Well, at the risk of me getting tossed from ATC and if you are willing to slip into the 60s...

"Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/santa_claus_conquers_the_martians/)" from 1964.

Got to admit though, the opening tune is killer!

Maybe this one will redeem me.

This one is shown on TCM from time to time...

From 1940 - "Remember the Night (https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/remember_the_night/)"

I have Santa Clause and the Martians on DVD!!!! It's indeed a funny film, that tries to bridge Santa as a Hero Character with SCI FI. A classic.

my local library offers a lot of streaming movies, free. Not sure if that is available for you or not

Seems like most everything is on You Tube these days. But for a break from the traditional, try Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol... :tree1:

The Bishop's Wife looks like it might be entertaining- I will have to check that out. And Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol. :santa-smiley:

Even when I am not exactly in the best of Christmas moods, The Bishop's Wife never ceases to make me both smile and at the end get very emotional (don't tell anyone)... :xmaswink:

The end of the Bishop's Wife surprised me. And the movie made me want to go out and be nice to people. :smiling angel:

It was a very touching ending and the thought of completing the sermon that David Niven began has been on my mind for some time... :xmaseyeroll:

As in you giving the completed sermon?

If I felt directed, yes. But for the most part, just composing it to see how I would be inspired... :my lord:

Well, I did my share in the military. On the radio, training seminars and briefings to the staff... :xmaswink:

Actually watched the silent movie (1923) adaption of A Christmas Carol. Very different to watch... :christmastree:

How interesting. I don't think I was aware of that version... Do you own it?

No. I think it is available, but I caught it on TCM... :hopxmas:

Based on an old classic... I watched the Muppet Christmas Carol. Really good... :snowman:
