A CHRISTMAS CAROL (1984) starring George C Scott, Frank Finlay, Angela Pleasence, Edward Woodward

There have been so many movie versions of A Christmas Carol but this is my favourite. I think George C Scott makes the perfect Scrooge and I also love Edward Woodward’s portrayal of the Ghost of Christmas Present and the dramatic moment when he opens his robe to reveal the two emaciated children representing Ignorance and Want.

MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1947) starring John Payne, Maureen O’Hara, Edmund Gwenn and a very young Natalie Wood.

BORROWED HEARTS (1997 TV Movie) starring Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) and Eric McCormack (Will and Grace)

Sam Field (Eric McCormack), a single, powerful businessman is about to close the biggest deal of his career with industrialist Javier Del Campo (Hector Elizondo), a self-proclaimed family man. Problem is, Sam prefers freedom to fatherhood. To impress Javier during his holiday visit, Sam convinces single mom Kathleen (Roma Downey) and her daughter, Zoey, to pose as his family for cash Kathleen desperately needs. With a little Christmas magic, Sam learns to open his heart to the best gifts of all: love and family.

I loved this charming romantic movie when I saw it on TV some years ago and I even sent for the DVD from the the USA because it wasn’t available in the UK. It’s a magical Christmas movie that’s great for families.
