Easing our way into Christmas

We're already a week into December, and there hasn't been all that much in the way of Christmas movies on TCM. That's changing a bit tomorrow, with a couple of Christmas films in the afternoon, followed by a break and a few more Christmas movies in prime time.

I think the only one of them I've recommended in the past is It Happened on Fifth Avenue, which you can see at noon tomorrow; it'll be showing up again on December 16. That will be followed at 2:00 PM by Scrooge, which is the 1970 musical version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol staring Albert Finney as Ebeneze Scrooge. That one will be showing up again on the 19th; in fact, starting the week of the 16th is about when TCM schedule really seems to pick up its Christmas movies.

Sunday night will have two Debbie Reynolds movies set at Christmas time: Susan Slept Here at 8:00 PM, followed at 10:00 PM by Bundle of Joy, which is a remake of Bachelor Mother. Both of those will be getting another showing later in the month; Bundle of Joy in the overnight between December 17-18, and Susan Slept Here early on the morning of Christmas Eve.
