Christmas In Connecticut
This movie just came out on DVD and it's an absolute treat! Made in 1945 with Barbara Stanwyck, this is a classic holiday tale full of love, laughter, and good food.
Stanwyck plays Elizabeth Lane, a popular magazine food columnist that isn't what she seems - in fact, she's made everything up about her farm in Connecticut (she lives in a New York apartment), her husband (she's not married) and her baby (nope, she doesn't have that, either!). And the best part? She can't cook!
When the owner of the magazine arranges for a World War II veteran to visit her house for the holidays, Elizabeth has some quick thinking to do, especially when she finds out the owner himself will be her guest, as well! She'd got to come up with a farm, a husband, a baby, and culinary skills!
A delightful romp full of holiday cheer as well as a great romance, Christmas in Connecticut is a perfect way to spend a cold, winter evening.
