One of my favorites, "Meet Me in St. Louis". Favorite song from the movie (and there are many great ones), "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
At the beginning of the movie, I believe a 1908 Ford Model S Roadster drives along the street (although the movie is set in 1903:
Judy Garland singing "Have Yourself...."
Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire has become a family tradition for us. I don't think there is any model t's in it but it does have some early 40's/late 30's cars in it.
Next up is White Christmas. Normally we watch them while putting up the tree
It's a Wonderful Life. Not sure of the car. Maybe a Dodge Bros., but there's probably some T's in some street scenes.
Christmas Story - the fight scene with the Model A bodies in the background.
An American Christmas Carol with Henry Winkler has lots of Model T and even a TT.
Yes, it's a DB, and is still around--I remember it was sold at an auction a few years ago.
New favorite is Polar Express, but you can't beat Holiday Inn, White Christmas and It's a wonderful life--heck hard to beat ANY Capra movie!
Last T-Day we were sitting around my Brother's living room, and the internet radio was playing the sound track from Holiday Inn, and I commented on I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, and the movie. They weren't familiar with it, and then the "Holiday Inn" theme came on, so that cinched it!
The movie White Christmas is the feature movie this weekend at the Redford Theatre in Detroit. Shows are at 7:30 pm on Friday and 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm on Saturday. Each features organ music before the movie and at intermission.
I'm watching "White Christmas" now on TCM. Always a great movie to watch at a great time of the year....
About to go to Vermont....
For me it is Home Alone, it is pretty corny slapstick, but the real message is priceless. Too many people waist their lives worrying about what might happen and do nothing to make good happen.
Christmas Vacation and Christmas Story.
The finale, Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby:
It doesn't get any better.
This wasn't in a movie, but should have been. Bing recorded it October 4, 1943. It was released as the B side of White Christmas, and was in the Top Ten for eleven weeks, reaching #3. On December 7, 1944, Bing sang it on the Kraft Music Hall broadcast, and that performance was released on V-Disc. I think this is the latter version. The imaginary movie scene that always plays in my head when I hear it has Bing singing the song into his favorite 44BX in an NBC studio at Sunset & Vine, and GI's listening to it on a jungle island in the South Pacific. It was immensely popular with American troops, but was banned by the BBC because of the last line.
