Another TCM original documentary

TCM is bringing us another installment in its Night at the Movies series, this time looking at Christmas movies. The documentary is getting its first airing at 8:00 PM tongiht and, like most TCM documentaries, will be getting a bunch of airings throught the month.

The documentary is obviously also a starting point for a night of Christmas movies. Some of them are movies I don't particularly care for, such as Tenth Avenue Angel at 4:00 AM. Then again, that's probably because I have a tendency to get irritated by the films of Margaret O'Brien. It's particularly bad when she's paired with Judy Garland in Meet Me In St. Louis, which precedes Tenth Avenue Angel at 2:00 AM.

On the other hand, TCM is also airing the short Star in the Night, which comes on around 10:35 PM after A Christmas Story. I can't believe it's been two years since I blogged on Star of the Night, but then, there are only so many Christmas movies for TCM to air.
