                  I was so excited to see this classic Christmas movie on Blu ray. Unfortunately the picture was no better than the DVD I already have. This isn't worth buying until they remaster it. Hopefully one day it will get the respect it deserves. But on a good note if you love Christmas movies this is a definite must see. Great story and actors. Don't let the less than stellar remake "The Preachers Wife" scare you away from seeing this classic!

                    I had been looking for this movie for quite awhile in the Blu-Ray format! Love to watch it every year during the holiday season. Cary Grant, Loretta Young, & David Niven.....top notch cast!

                    I love this version much better than the remake "The Preacher's Wife". Sometimes it's best not to mess with the original.

                      This classic movie is made even better than ever in Blu-ray. The quality is superb, and the story and its message are as relevant and appealing today as they were sixty years ago. Cary Grant, Loretta Young, and David Niven are excellent as they portray their respective characters, and I am thrilled to have this version of the movie in my video collection.

                        The sound was so much clearer with the blue ray. The movie was sharper. More enjoyable to watch over and over again. Thanks for making this a very special Christmas for my husband!

                                        I have the DVD version and now purchased the Blue Ray - Amazing. Play it during the holidays several times. The actors are superb and the story line is wonderful.
