All Mine to Give
It's Christmastime as young Robbie Eunson pulls his little sister on a sled through the snow to a snug house in the woods. But this is no yuletide treat. Instead, Robbie is fulfilling the promise he made to their dying mother - that he would find a home for each of the six orphaned Eunson children.

All Mine to Give follows pioneers Mamie and Robert Eunson (Glynis Johns and Cameron Mitchell) through hardship, hard work and joy in 19th-century Wisconsin as they raise a family united by love. It's a love that will stay with the children after their parents are tragically gone, giving them the strength to turn terrible loss into a triumph of the human spirit.

Holiday Affair
Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh are warmly matched in Holiday Affair, a seasonal favorite scripted by Isobel Lenhart (later to adapt Mitchum's The Sundowners) and directed by Hope/Crosby "road movies" veteran Don Hartman. Mitchum plays Mason, helping a child who'd otherwise find disappointment under the Christmas tree. The boy's war-widow mom (Leigh) notes the gesture, and she's drawn to the handsome stranger. But will she abandon the security of the prosperous attorney (Wendell Corey) dating her for the charm of this unemployed man who puts his money where his heart is?

It Happened on 5th Avenue
No one is inside that boarded-up mansion on Manhattan's ritzy 5th Avenue, right? Wrong. Its secret inhabitants include a philosophizing hobo and some GI families who are unable to find apartments during the post-World War II housing crunch. They set up residence in the posh brownstone while the owner, the second richest man in the world, winters in Virginia. Except the owner isn't in Virginia. He's there in disguise... and discovering a lot about how the average Joe and Jane think and live.

Blossoms in the Dust
Based on the true story of Edna Gladney.
Greer Garson portrays Edna Gladney, who is married to Texan Sam Gladney (Walter Pidgeon), operator of a wheat mill. Edna discovers by chance how the law treats children who are without parents and decides to do something about it. She opens a home for foundlings and orphans and begins to place children in good homes, despite the opposition of "conservative" citizens, who would condemn illegitimate children for being born out of wedlock. Eventually Edna leads a fight in the Texas legislature to remove the stigma of illegitimacy from birth records in that state, while continuing to be an advocate for homeless children.

                            the other two are great but no tears.

                                      I remember this movie from when I was a child. It is an entertaining movie that can also break your heart. It demonstrates that Christmas can be a difficult time for many families when family members pass away. There can be hope in tough times!
