Day 1: Must-See Movie

December 1: Favorite Christmas movie.

Oh, Magoo, you've done it again! Yes, it's Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol (1962).

Love, love, love this. It's funny. It's witty. It's imaginative. It's touching. It's remarkably faithful to Dickens and, remarkably, it's just an hour long.

If you have a child in your life, I highly recommend you watch this together. It's an easily accessible introduction to the Scrooge tale. And if you don't have a kid in your life, well, what the hell, enjoy it anyway.

  1. I *love* Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. Just watched it the other day. I love the three thieves' song: "We're reprehensible. We'll steal your pen. And pencible. Then sneer at you, leer at you naughtily. And really we ought to be, in jail."

    By the way, thanks for joining in, and for your comment on "It's a Wonderful Life."
    My pick for most romantic scene in a movie is Stewart/Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story: (about the 1 minute mark).

  2. I'm going to order this for my two great-nephews! :-)


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
