    Alternative and traditional Christmas movies, what are your favorites?

    Hiya,

    Since my family has decided to seize control of the TV at the house today and force me to view a series of Christmas movies since 9AM, I figured I would start this thread to see what others here have for favorites.

    My picks are:

    Alternative: "We're no angels" 1955, Bogart, Aldo Ray and Peter Ustinov. A black comedy reminiscent of Frank Kapra's "Arsenic and old lace" You have to really pay attention to the dialog and interaction of the "Three wise men" (convicts) to appreciate the comedic timing of these 3 dramatic actors.

    From IMDB: At Christmas, three prisoners - Joseph, Albert and Jules - escape from Devil Island to a French small coastal town. They decide to rob a store, to get some money, clothes and travel by ship to another place. They pretend to be there to fix the roof, but pretty soon they realize that the financial condition of the family Ducotel is not good. Andre Trochard, the selfish and mean owner of the establishment, exploits the family Ducotel. The three convicts spend Christmas night with the Ducotels and are so well treated by the family that they decide to help them. Their "pet" helps them to fix the situation.

    Traditional: A Christmas Carol 1984 Geo C. Scott I liked this as Scott plays a far more cynical and realistic Ebenezer than Albert Finny.

    From IMDB: Made for television version of the Charles Dickens classic of the same name. Ebenezer Scrooge is a hard-nosed, single-minded businessman in Victorian London. He has no friends, has disowned his only living relative - his nephew Fred Holywell - and generally treats everyone he meets with extreme contempt. He hates Christmas, only cares about making money and only gives his clerk, Bob Cratchit, the day off. However, he is taught the true meaning and spirit of Christmas by three ghosts who show him his own past and present. He is also shown what the future holds for him after his death if he doesn't change his behavior for the better.
