SKU ID #344884

Boys Town
Today they grow up lawless and on the streets. Tomorrow they're on Death Row. Father Edward Flanagan vows to break the cycle, putting his life where his faith is and starting a boys' home that becomes a model of hope.

A Christmas Carol
""May it haunt [my readers'] houses pleasantly,"" Charles Dickens wrote in the preface to his A Christmas Carol. This 1938 version offers one of that timeless work's most pleasant screen hauntings, bustling with a lavish backlot re-creation of Victorian London. Reginald Owen portrays holiday humbug Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser's miser who has a huge change of heart after spirits whisk him into the past, present and future.

Christmas In Connecticut
In her Smart Housekeeping column, Elizabeth Lane provides festive recipes and homemaking hints. But Elizabeth's got a secret: she needs a recipe to boil water. Elizabeth has no cooking skills, no Connecticut farm, no adoring hubby and no baby-makes-three as depicted in her column. She better get them. Because Elizabeth's boss has invited himself and a recently returned war hero to her home for Christmas.

The Singing Nun
As Sister Ann, Reynolds defies all stereotypes with her delightfully shocking habits. She rides a motor scooter, rarely travels without her guitar, and is at times too quirky for her spiritual calling. When enthusiam backfires while struggling to help the poor people of the community, her music consoles her. When parish priest Father Clementi (Ricardo Montalban of Fantasy Island) arranges a recording session and Sister Ann becomes an overnight success, forcing her to choose between the convent and a music career, she surprises everyone by making the ultimate sacrifice.
