Christmas In Connecticut (1945) DVD

SKU ID #307071
$9.98
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.

Laughs, romance, holiday cheer: that's the recipe Barbara Stanwyck and a stellar company of Warner Bros. players follow in this amiable farce that was a huge hit with 1945 audiences and has become a perennial seasonal favorite. Have a very merry Christmas In Connecticut.

          One of the most clever and entertaining classic Christmas movies from the forties. Barbara Stanwyck is great, and the supporting cast top notch. Refreshingly adult - not for young children.

                all the actors are excellent: Dennis Morgan is a favorite of mine, Barvbara Stanwyck a lovely surprise in a comedy.
                i think colorization would spoil the excellent light and dark shadings; plus often the colors selected when changing from b&w are garish and detract.
                a gem of a movie.

                    One of my favorite Christmas movies... and romantic comedies. The characters are wonderful. Barbara Stanwyck is always one of my favorites. Christmas seems empty without at least one viewing.

                        This is a wonderful story with lots of twists and turns - very entertaining.
                        But it needs to be Colorized to reap the full beauty of the wonderful landscape and interior shots of that beautiful home.
                        I grew up on black and white and much prefer Color - especially the color or Dennis Morgan's blue eyes.

                        Christmas in Connecticut would be so enhanced by Colorization !!
                        and would sell great this Christmas !

                              Although she is associated with noir material like "Baby Face" and "Double Indemnity", Barbara Stanwyck proves that she can do screwball comedy with the best of them (and even co-stars as unlikely as Sydney Greenstreet)!

                                  This movie is a must have, especially for the holidays... and Barbara Stanwyck always gave a good performance!

                                  Just as we hoped.

                                    Nice to be able to see something from our youth.

                                      Escape the holiday frenzy by cozying down with a light-hearted romantic romp with Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan and great supporting cast. I look forward to it every year.
