Holiday Affair (1949)

Holiday Affair is a 1949 romantic comedy starring Robert Mitchum (one of my favorites) and Janet Leigh. It takes place during the Christmas season. Delightful! This is perfect if the Hallmark movies make you gag but you're still wanting a sweet movie for the season. I watched it here.


The NYT calls it "an amiable little romance". Emanuel Levy concludes, "Holiday Affair is a suitable fare for all members of the family, and a capsule of what American value system in the 1940s."

Please have a Christmas cuppa with me:

and join the T Stands for Tuesday party hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth.


  1. ...thanks for the heads up, but I'll pass on the cuppa though.

  2. Good morning, I love your Christmas cup and saucer-pairs beautifully with your very cool coffee maker. I would love this movie-thanks
    Happy T wishes Hugs Kathy

  3. I'll leave the film but very gladly help drink your coffee pot empty! Happy T Day, Valerie

  4. I'll certainly join you for a cuppa. Your Christmas tree cup and saucer would fit right in my home (grin). It's a beauty, too.

    I laughed at your description of the Hallmark movies. I totally agree. Too much sugar (or syrup) and not enough spice for my taste. However, I might actually watch this one. Especially since I'm not really into Christmas feel good movies.

  5. OMGosh. I totally forgot to thank you for sharing that beautiful cup of coffee with us for T this Tuesday. My bad, I need more coffee, I think.

  6. Fabulous film, this is one of my favourites! Your teacup and saucer is so festive with the pretty Christmas tree - I love it 😁. Happy T Tuesday! Hugs, Jo x

  7. One of my favorite Christmas movies! Hubby and I just watched it again the other evening:) Lovely cup and saucer to celebrate the season too. Happy T day!

  8. I just saw your message on Elizabeth’s comments ,I had a problem linking so maybe that’s why?
    I love your pretty cup and saucer, I have a Christmas mug I bought a few years ago from Michaels that I always get out.
    Have a great T day

  9. It´s a wonderful life is ready to be watched over here :-)
    Nice cuppa, happy T-Day!

  10. Himself and I have been watching Christmas movies. Will have to tell him about this one. I’ll skip the coffee in favor of tea. No worries, I travel withs my own teabags, cream that doesn’t require refrigeration, and liquid Stevia. I’ll gladly use one of your pretty Christmas cups.

  11. Its a really pretty Christmas cup and saucer and I would happily join you for a cup of tea.

    Happy T day wishes.

  12. I love this holiday coffee cup too. And this movie sounds great. I haven't watched too many yet this year, and I haven't seen this one, but hopefully I'll get to a few. I need to check this one out. Hope it was a super T day. I can send you a box of snow if you would like also. We had of it today. Hugs-Erika

  13. I'm not sure if I've seen this one, so I'm going to save the link. I love the Hallmark Christmas movies, because I like seeing happy endings, since life rarely works that way. I love your Christmas cup. Happy Belated T-Day!

  14. Super sweet movie! Was in the mood for this today--thanks! :)

    1. Sometimes a super sweet movie is just the thing :)

  15. I enjoy Janet Leigh. There are some other familiar faces in the trailer too. Thanks for the look back in time.

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx
