    This is such a special Christmas movie that I save it till almost Christmas Day to watch it. Barbara Stanwyck is at her funniest best. She is the reason the movie is so special. It gives you that old fashioned Christmasy feeling you just don’t feel nowadays. I love it! I own it, and I watch it every Christmas season!
