“Arrange it, are you crazy? Where am I gonna get a farm?
I haven’t even got a window box!”

Out of all the Christmas movies out there, Christmas in Connecticut has to be my favorite! I borrowed it from Netflix about 6 years ago because I saw a commercial for it on Turner Classic Movies (my favorite channel on television) and thought it looked darling! My siblings poked fun at me because they thought it was just going to be another old black and white movie but even THEY enjoyed it! It is the ultimate “fake it until you make it” movie and will definitely raise your spirits. This movie is a must see and will surely be a part of your Christmas movie list for years to come.
Here is the synopsis from the TCM website:
War hero Dennis Morgan becomes the object of a publicity stunt staged by magazine publisher Sidney Greenstreet. The corpulent print mogul announces that Morgan has won a Christmas dinner, to be prepared by the magazine’s housekeeping expert Barbara Stanwyck in her own Connecticut home.
