Christmas in Connecticut

The Daughter picked this one as a follow-up to the VeggieTales' Star of Christmas. Christmas in Connecticut stars Barbara Stanwyck as the Smart Housekeeping Magazine mega-housewife who writes a monthly feature about cooking and housekeeping and raising a baby on her country farm. The fact is that she lives in a city apartment and can't cook at all, getting all the ideas for her gourmet meals from her Uncle Felix (S.Z. Sakall) who is the chef/proprietor of a restaurant. She isn't married and has no baby. Trouble comes when her publisher (Sydney Greenstreet) wants to spend Christmas with her family on their farm with a war hero who is recuperating from almost 3 weeks adrift on a raft. Una O'Connor also plays a part.

It's at youtube in 11 parts. -not anymore as of 12/1/2009, but here's a trailer:

12/22/2007: Cinematical has a review.

12/20/2008: This film is a favorite of The Daughter, so we picked tonight (when she'd be home) to watch it again. It's one of my favorites, too, and I'm always ready for the annual re-viewing since The Husband bought me my very own DVD.

TCM has an overview.
