| Pretty much covers the territory, though without adding anything new or exciting to the field...
Christmas special from Turner Classic Movies walks through the obligatory holiday perennials in cinema, with interesting background history on how the trend initially started (with silent versions of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" appearing in the early 1900s). Authors, actors, and filmmakers comment on pictures such as "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Miracle on 34th Street", though most film buffs will be one step ahead of the speakers. Notable among the missing titles is 1940's "Beyond Tomorrow" (aka "Beyond Christmas") and "Holiday Inn" from 1942. Former child stars Karolyn Grimes (from "It's a Wonderful Life" and "The Bishop's Wife") and Margaret O'Brien (of "Meet Me in St. Louis") share colorful tidbits regarding their films (they're also charming in segments shown during the end credits), but overall this cable-TV stocking-stuffer has a been-there-done-that flavor.
