Christmas Film: Bachelor Mother (1939)

I have watched Bachelor Mother a couple of times and I love it, I am not a massive Ginger fan, but this film is so cute, she works in a toy department and it is set over the Christmas period. She happens to find an abandoned baby but gets into trouble with the store owner's suave son played by David Niven for her unmotherly conduct, and it has Charles Coburn, I love him. What's your favourite Christmas film to watch?

  2. I can't figure out how I still haven't seen this movie. I love David Niven (and Ginger Rogers! and Charles Coburn!). Looks like it'll be on TCM later this month--I'm off to send myself a reminder e-mail!

  5. Coco: I must say your grandma sounds like my kinda gal!

    Lauren: I reckon you will love it, if you are a fan of David Niven you should read his book 'Bring on the empty horses' if you haven't already, its excellent his view of Hollywood lovely little anecdotes in it.

    Black music: thank you, you are too kind!

  6. I must admit that I generally don't like Christmas films all that much - I don't know if it's that so many are overly sentimental or that they're all made in the northern hemisphere and un-seasonally wintery for an Australian gal at Christmas time. ;) I did re-watch The Long Kiss Goodnight, the other day, though - badass Geena Davis & Samuel L. Jackson for Christmas!

  7. You are right most Christmas films are sentimental tripe, I do love the nightmare before christmas, and the long kiss goodnight it one badass film, the scene where she goes crazy chopping with the knife prepping vegetables is so brilliant! x
