30 Christmas Films: Day 7

Title: Christmas in Connecticut (1945)

Synopsis: Elizabeth Lane (Barbara Stanwyck) is a famous journalist who writes about an idyllic life with her family on a Long Island farm for a housekeeping magazine. The reality is that she’s a single woman living in Brooklyn who can’t even cook. When the owner of the magazine decides to send a sailor to spend the holidays with the famous housewife and her husband, she’s forced to improvise.

Why You Should Watch: The 1940\’s brand of comedy is lighthearted and fun. Just an hour and some forty-odd minutes of another era with the slang, fashion, and customs is worth the watch. (I get a little wistful for the days when folks wore suits and hats to travel.) The characters are also interesting including a Hungarian restaurateur played by S.Z. Sakall. You know you need more classic films in your life! 🙂
