Christmas movies abound, but these are some of my favourites that are set in the past, either by design, or because the era in which they were made now qualifies as the past.

All Mine To Give / The Day They Gave Babies Away (1957)

The Box Of Delights (1984)

A Dog Of Flanders with David Ladd (1959) or Jeremy James Kissner (1999)

Dondi (1961)

The Fourth Wise Man (1985)

The House Without A Christmas Tree (1972)

The Man Who Saved Christmas (2009)

Miracle At Moreaux (1986)

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

101 Dalmatians (Animated Disney original, 1961)


  1. Wow! You have several in there I don’t know. I like the 1996 version of 101 Dalmations with Glenn Close. She was outstanding in that. Still makes me laugh when I think about her. My fave is Alastair Sim in A Christmas Carol, Jimmy Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life, Wind At My Back Christmas, and The Walton Family Christmas Movei with Patricia Neal. That sure dates me. There are some really fun new movies out there. One with Jennifer Neal that has been playing on W all week–gotta look up the title and Christmas with the Kranks. The Good Witch’s Gift with Catherine Bell, a Hallmark movie. Some great new stuff. I am glad because I am a total Christmas addict! Love your short informative posts! Thanks for the info.

  2. OOps had Patricia Neal on the brain. I meant Jennifer Grey, Joel Grey’s daughter. About her heading to Aspen to get married on Christmas Eve and everything goes wrong. It’s a cute one.
