    This is one of the greatest holiday movies of all time. Right up there with White Christmas, Christmas in Connecticut, etc. This is a classic that should be passed down to generation after generation. A++++++++
  • Secret Christmas classic..

    Light, sweet and fluffy entertainment. I admit I'm crazy about Cary Grant and that certainly adds to my rating. But I was spoiled by The Preacher's Wife with Denzel. 😉 The movies are very similar, but oh so different. There's room on my Apple TV for both!
