Favorite Christmas Movie Moment ?
Well, how about the 2 lines at the end of It's a Wonderful Life, where George is standing inside his house, and the laundry basket is filling up with money while people start filing in one by one, and Ernie is reading a telegram that was sent to Mr. Gower the Druggist :
"Mr. Gower cabled you need cash. Stop."



"My office instructed to advance you
up to twenty-five thousand dollars. Stop."



"Hee-haw and Merry Christmas.
Sam Wainwright."

That line and another one when Harry Bailey says :
"Good idea, Ernie, a toast...


to my big brother George.



The richest man in town!"
The movie itself is one of the greatest, but those 2 lines at the very end of this long movie choke me up every time, watch the look on Georges face after these lines are spoken, and you'll know what I mean.

I'd like to continue Top Cop's favorite Christmas movie moment... While George is holding Zuzu, a branch of the Christmas tree is shaken causing a little bell ornament to ring.  That's when Zuzu says, "Look, Daddy, teacher says, 'Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.'"  Then, there's that last scene when George reads what Clarence wrote in a book... something like, "No man is a failure who has friends."

I always liked the scene in Miracle On 34th Street where the little Dutch girl who can't speak English sits on Kris' lap.  She's thrilled that Kris can speak Dutch and they sing a Dutch Christmas song together, to the amazement of the woman who brought her as well as Natalie Wood watching nearby.

Some of my favorite Christmas movie moments are the ones which introduced what would later become some of our great standard songs...

"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" Judy Garland to Margaret O'Brien in Meet Me In St. Louis

"Silver Bells" Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in The Lemon Drop Kid

"Count Your Blessings (Instead Of Sheep)" Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney in White Christmas

Jim,

That scene with Edmund Gwenn and Marlene Lyden in Miracle On 34th Street is one of my favorites from the film as well.

In case anyone is interested, I thought I would post below the lyrics to the Dutch song they sang together, and then the English translation.


(Dutch lyrics)

Sinterklaas, kapoentje,
Gooi wat in mijn schoentje,
Gooi wat in mijn laarsje,
Dank je, Sinterklaasje.

(English translation)

Saint Nicholas,
Throw something in my shoe,
Throw something in my boot,
Thank you Saint Nicholas.


By the way, in a recent conversation I had with Alvin Greenman (who played Alfred in the movie), we were talking about Marlene Lyden. She just died just four years ago in Las Vegas where she had been a real estate agent for many years after retiring from acting.

Here's what she looked like in the movie, and then all grown up...

Marlene Lyden, huh?  OMG!  What a wealth of information Chip has!  Now we can all sing along with that song, too.  Thanks, Chip.

Also, thanks for mentioning Alvin Greenman.  I've been meaning to research the actor who played Alfred.  I can't remember his exact lines from the film, but there's one scene where he's talking to Kris - I think he has a broom in his hand, if I'm not mistaken.  Anyway, he expounds on all the commercialism surrounding Christmas.  That's a fascinating scene when you consider that was 1947.  Every time I watch it, I think his words are just as true today, perhaps more so.

Jim,

Just a little tidbit about Alvin: that Brooklyn accent he used for his character in the film was a testament to his acting chops, as he was a native of Manhattan. He pulled it off well.

By the way, Alvin is now 81 and retired and lives in Van Nuys, California. His wife of 54 years passed away 8 years ago, but he has two wonderful children, a son and a daughter, that are a joy in his life.

Well, Chip, the next time you talk to Alvin, you can tell him there's at least one person on whom he made a lasting impression with that one little scene.  I'm sure a lot of others feel the same way.

Message delivered, Jim.

I've been meaning to give Alvin a call lately, and your message was an added incentive for me to finally do just that.

Anyway, I told him what you said in your post and he said he truly appreciated it. He's glad some of his work in films still resonates with people today. Alvin loved making Miracle On 34th Street and has many fond memories of making the picture. He loved Edmund Gwenn, John Payne and Maureen O'Hara and said they were the nicest people to work with. He also said that John Payne was particularly kind and even had him over for dinner and gave him invaluable tips on acting, which he used throughout his acting career; although, most of his later work in Hollywood was behind the camera as a script supervisor and dialogue/dialect coach. Another movie he really enjoyed making was Mr. Belvedere Goes To College with Clifton Webb, Shirley Temple and Tom Drake. Some of the films to his credit as a script supervisor were The Longest Yard, Airplane II, The Karate Kid and the TV series Doogie Howser, M.D. and Hearts Afire.

I remembered the scene... it was Alfred's "Make a buck, make a buck" speech.  OK, I cheated and looked it up.  But thanks for filling us in on Alvin's subsequent work.  To this day, that remains one of the greatest Christmas movie moments.

Yes Jim, it is a great moment.

By the way, I mentioned to Alvin what you said in your post about those words in 1947 regarding the commercialization of Christmas being just as true today, and he agreed. (Of course, for Alvin, it pertains to Hanukah, as Alvin is Jewish.)

Someone above mentioned Home Alone.  That's a touching scene at the end after Kevin's been reunited with his family.  He looks out the front window and sees the old man who lives across the street has reconciled with his estranged family.

The Family Stone (2005) was never marketed as a Christmas movie, but its underlying story is a family reunion which occurs every Christmas.  In the beginning of the movie, Diane Keaton is staring at their Christmas tree.  She is obviously deep in thought and it doesn't become apparent until much later about what was on her mind.  (I won't give it away if you haven't seen it).  It's upon repeated viewings that makes this scene special.

I always liked the scene at the end of A Christmas Story where Melinda Dillon turns on the radio then walks over and sits on the arm of the chair next to Darren McGavin.  The room is dark except for the lights of the Christmas tree, and as the two of them look out the window and watch the falling snow, you can hear "Silent Night" (by what sounds like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir) playing softly in the background.  The snow, the Christmas tree, and "Silent Night"... it's only a few seconds, but was there ever such a scene that conveyed such warmth and coziness?

Last night's AMC airing of Miracle On 34th Street reminded me of this discussion from earlier this year.  Throughout the broadcast various Movie Notes appeared at the bottom of the screen citing information about the stars, filming the movie, and other assorted bits of trivia.

I found one of these notes particularly interesting.  It stated that John Payne had written a sequel to Miracle On 34th Street, but it never found its way to production.  Wouldn't you love to have seen that made?  I wonder if the storyline involved Doris and Fred getting married and living in that house, or if it was completely unrelated to the characters in the original.  How sad that we'll never know.

Jim,

In Maureen O'Hara's autobiography she said that she and John Payne had been talking about doing a sequel to Miracle on 34th Street for years and that he did eventually write a screenplay but died before he ever sent it to her. No details are known about the screenplay he wrote. I even asked Alvin Greenman (who played Alfred in the film) and even he didn't know the details.

There was also a little tid-bit about one of the lines that Thomas Mara Jr. had ad-libbed, or something, in the Court Room Scene that wasn't in the script.  I only saw it once so I don't remember the exact wording and they showed the movie right after the airing of the one with the notes, but this time it was just the movie so I didn't DVR it to reference back.

Also the reading about the United States Postal Service where Fred Gailey was saying the year it was established was 1776 but the note scrolling across the screen said 1775 which is the correct year.

Also during the filiming of the "Susan's House" scenes, the notes said it was so cold that the camera's kept freezing and the neighbors would let the crew bring the cameras into their homes and put them near their fireplaces.  But the odd thing is, if it was so cold, why didn't we see the steam from their breath?

I didn't see the movie from the beginning so I can't comment on other notes.  I have the movie on Video Tape and DVD so I wasn't really concerned about watching it but there wasn't anything else interestig on and I decided to watch the rest of the movie.  But also was disappointed because it was the "Colorized" version.

Susan:

Actually, the biggest single factual mistake in the picture is when Edmund Gwenn says to Maureen O'Hara that the Vice President under John Quincy Adams was Daniel D. Tompkins; when in fact it was John C. Calhoun.

Daniel D. Tompkins was actually the Vice President under James Monroe.



Henry:

The 1940 motion picture The Shop Around the Corner is one of the absolute all-time greats. It is one of the privileged films that was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. It was produced and directed the great Ernst Lubitsch (a la "The Lubitsch Touch") and it stars the always wonderful Jimmy Stewart and the equally always wonderful Margaret Sullavan. It also boasts a superb supporting cast that includes Frank Morgan, Joseph Schildkraut and Felix Bressart. This classic motion picture is a national treasure and I highly recommend it for anyone who has not yet seen it.

Chip,

The history of our Presidents wasn't my best subject. lol.  I wouldn't have known about that fact if you hadn't mentioned it.

The thing that gets me, is, if I remember correctly from another discussion, that the original script has long since disappeared.  If I am mistaken, I apologize.  But if it is indeed gone, how did AMC find out these things about lines that weren't in the script?  Again, I can't remember the actual line that Thomas Mara Jr. was supposed to say when he was called up and asked if he believed in Santa Claus.  But the tid-bit did say that he added his own lines or something to what he was supposed to say.

The original script to Miracle on 34th Street has not been lost. Whoever said that was wrong. In fact, a member of our message board, Bob Grippo (aka Maxx151), consulted the original script extensively for his books on Macy's and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Chip,

This is where I get myself into trouble.  I belong to several different Christmas groups and I remember things from them all, and that is where the confusion comes in.  I do have both of Robert M. Grippo's books.  I have only been able to find "Macy's  The Store.  The Star.  The Story." since moving, thank to the movers messing up all my boxes and I can't find certain things right now.

There's another book I want to read again "1225 Mistletoe Lane" by Lenny Castellaneta. but it's buried under other boxes in my bedroom behind some stuff I had to move out of my living room in order to make room for my tree.

I do remember now that Robert  M. Grippo used the script for his books.  I just need a jolt from you once in awhile to jog my memory.

Maybe I should leave a few of the Christmas groups, that way I won't have so much confusion.  The other groups aren't necessarily about The WPIX Yule Log, but it has been mentioned there, and I've referred people to here for more information.  But they talk about movies, traditions, music, etc., and, again, this is where the confusion starts to come in.

I apologize for my incorrect reference to the original script being lost.  I should probably ask you something via email before mentioning it here if I am unsure of the facts.  But I don't want to swamp you with emails either.  It was an honest mistake on my part.

I'm grateful to you that you are here to point out any inaccuracies that we may post.  I just wish I wasn't the one doing a lot of them.

Chip,

I don't know if it's my browser or not, but in this thread, there are missing graphics.  The avatar for JustAjeepGuy and TopCop have just a box with an "X" in it.

On page one of this thread, your post #18 dated 10/13/2008 there is just a white space where it looks like a picture was, but there isn't an "X' in it and it looks almost like a wallet-sized picture.  Whe I "Right Click" on it, I get a message "Movie not loaded"  it also shows something on the bottom about Adobe Flash Player.  So it must've been a video clip.

Then on page one of this thread, your post # 31, dated 10/19/2008 there is another white area, and it appears it was supposed to be a movie clip but the options are "Zoom In" " Zoom Out"  "Show All"  "Quality" "Print"  and at the bottom in shows something about Adobe Flash player.

On page two, your post #47 dated 04/04/2011 after "Message Delivered Jim" there is just a little box with and "X" in it.  And the same thing to your post # 49 in a response to Jim.  "Yes Jim, it is a great moment"

After that all the graphics seem to be there.

The images that are missing are older images that were lost before the conversion to the new image server. Apparently, the old image server reached its maximum capacity and some of the older images were jettisoned. That's why Aimoo had to convert to the new image server. Hopefully, no more images should ever be lost again.

I'm sure it will be very time consuming and you have more important matters on your mind.

I'm in a similar situation with a site I am an admin of and a lot of things got messed up when they changed servers.

So I have an idea of what you're going through with this message board, especially with several years of posts from all of the members.

Getting the feels reading this again and thinking of more of my own...
I restate the "Oh fudge" moment from ACS....this was one of my Rewind Moments as a kid.  I had to keep watching it over and over.  I remember building a Statue of Liberty like figure in my grandparents' yard with a bucket, a garbage can, and a Christmas tree stand for the crown.  I called her "The Queen Mother of Dirty Words" :-) 

Agree about the Silent Night moment from the same movie, then Ralphie's final narration and That Version of We Wish You A Merry Christmas to play the movie off.  

Again, the Gremlins opening credits.

Not really movie, but....the end of A Muppet Family Christmas, when Jim Henson comes out in preparation to do the dishes with Sprocket (the dog from Fraggle Rock).  Also the times when Muppets from X Franchise meet Y Franchise for the first time.  

The end of Mickey's Christmas Carol makes me feel good too ("I'm giving you a raise!  And making you my partner...")  As for obsession forming lines, "...THE RICHEST MAN IN THE CEMETERY!"

Hi everyone long time no see.  Hope everyone had a great year and all set for a another great Xmas. One thing I love about the internet and Youtube is that where available you can zip to a certain scene(s) without having to watch the whole movie. My wife and I just watched the ending scene of Scrooge from 1951, the look of shock/surprise over the face that Bob Cratchit makes over Scrooge's line "which leaves me no alternative but to raise your salary" is absolutely timeless, Combined with the strong and hearty laughter that Scrooge gives off is enough to tickle one's funny bone...anyone agree?

Yup!  That moment always warms the cockles of my heart (hmm?  What are heart cockles anyway? oh well).

That version of A Christmas Carol is my hands down favorite.

Another moment I love is when Scrooge is calling down from his window to the boy in the street and the boy replies in a cockney accent and Scrooge remarks sotto voce something like "Clever lad" or "Clever fellow."

In that scene, in the classic and definitive 1951 film version, Alastair Sim (as Scrooge) actually refers to the young lad sotto voce four times: first as an "intelligent boy," then as a "remarkable boy," then as a "delightful boy," and lastly as an "enchanting boy."

By the way, all of these references are also in the original book by Charles Dickens, except the last one, an "enchanting boy," which was sweetly added to the screenplay by screenwriter Noel Langley.
