Are These The 20 Best Christmas Movies?
What are the top 20 Christmas movies ever?
Well, we'd put that nostalgic Barbara Stanwyck classic Christmas In Connecticut (pictured, above) on our list. And we'd also include a number of other old black-and-white movies from Hollywood's golden age, such as the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim.
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, with our personal faves in bold, 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)
