                It is nice to have some version of this classic but colorizing takes away the charm of the old black and whites!

                            The movie itself is a classic. I have watch this movie since I was a child. The only reason I have not watched it yet is because I have not had a chance.

                                      This is another one of my feel good movies. I guess because of the time that it was made, in the 40s, I was a youngster and it brings back the sights, sounds and smells ( in my mind ) of my Christmas childhood days. It's just a nice movie, did I mention.... Cary Grant? :)

                                        One of my all time favorites. The characters are completely lovable and sympathetic. A great holiday movie to watch all the year round.
