Christmas Classic Movies for Kids
Greatest Christmas Movie Soundtracks
World War II had just ended, and maybe at that time everyone was in a reflective mood. This is the story of an honest businessman (paradox?) played by James Stewart (who famously was the wheelchair-bound photographer L.B. Jeffreys in Alfred Hitcock‘s Rear Window alongside Grace Kelly) and features one of the best Christmas movie endings.
This is the classic of all classics and it is a must-see as it has become an iconic Christmas movie.
This post-war film asks the age-old question “is Father Christmas real?” A young girl played by Natalie Wood (Maria in West Side Story) wants to meet Father Christmas at all cost and believes he works at Macy’s department store. Miracle on the 34th Street is another of those great christmas classic movies that you cannot afford to miss.
A family sets off to go on holiday for Christmas but they forget their child, played by Macaulay Culkin – who like many child stars like Miley Cyrus has been involved in a fair share of scandals in his personal life.
The humour is slapstick and possibly the film should be shorter but now it has become a classic so who are we to judge?
Bing Crosby sings about dreaming of a white Christmas, so what’s not to like? World War II is still very much present in this film which tells the story of two servicemen who tread the boards with their very own sing and dance act. Part musical, part romantic comedy, part predictable Christmas movie, White Christmas benefits from excellent performances by the lead actors.
Monty Python’s ironic take on the Bible’s account of the life of Jesus, the least Christmassy of all Christmas movies: an irreverent parody that people over 30 will appreciate. “It’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!” has become the most memorable quote from the film – and is even the title of a DVD It’s not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy!) taped at the Royal Albert Hall featuring various musical parodies from Monty Python.
In the film Brian is a contemporary to Jesus and is mistaken for the Messiah with embarrassing and hilarious consequences.
