What is your favourite Christmas movie and why?
We put that question to some local seniors as the community was getting into the holiday spirit.
• Yvonne Menear: White Christmas (1954, staring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen)
“I like the music and the dancing, I like the whole storyline. I just like the whole theme. It’s a love story, It’s got music. It’s got respect for the military. Plus it’s Christmas.”
• Nuala Adderly: Miracle on 34th Street (1947, staring Natalie Wood, Maureen O’Hara, Edmund Gwenn, and John Payne)
“I watch it every year. That what nice about it. I forget until I watch it the next year again. And of course I’m a sucker for Christmas.”
• Glenda Harley, Frosty the Snowman (animated)
This one is a favourite with the grandchildren.
“It’s kind of neat how the kids get into it.”
• Iris Zeller, White Christmas
“I like that scenery. I like the dancing. I like the music and I like the storyline. To me, it’s very Christmasy. “
• Rebecca Chapman, A Christmas Carol (1951, staring Alastair Sim, Kathleen Harrison, Mervyn Johns, Hermione Baddeley)
“Because it’s traditional. I watch it every year [since childhoold], and I’m 65.”
