Which Ones Would Make Your Top 20 List?
Above, you'll find one notion of the top dozen Christmas movies ever. Maybe you can name each one of them.
But, honestly, what are the top 20 Christmas movies ever?
Well, we'd put that nostalgic Barbara Stanwyck classic Christmas In Connecticut on our list. And we'd also include a number of other old black-and-white movies from Hollywood's golden age.
One thing's for sure: The legendary Hollywood studios and the movie moguls of yesteryear knew how to do Christmas. And they did it up right.
But when Entertainment Weekly decided to rank the Top 20 Christmas movies of all time, they also included some that actually originated on TV.
Anyway, here (from number 20 to Number One) is the list they came up with:
20. The Santa Clause (1994)
19. Gremlins (1984)
18. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)
17. Scrooged (1988)
16. Die Hard (1988)
15. Miracle On 34th Street (1947)
14. White Christmas (1954)
13. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
12. Trading Places (1983)
11. Home Alone (1990)
10. Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
9. The Year Without A Santa Claus (1974)
8. The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
7. Bad Santa (2003)
6. Love Actually (2003)
5. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
4. Elf (2003)
3. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
2. A Christmas Story (1983)
1. IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)
There is one that isn't not on this list and we'll throw in Christmas in Connecticut (1945) -- as we've previously mentioned -- as an extra added bonus.
