Neil LaBute has written the screenplay for this film based on his own stage play.
Includes - A Christmas Carol (1938), MPAA Rating: NR The Shop Around the Corner (1940), MPAA Rating: NR Christmas in Connecticut (1945), MPAA Rating: NR It Happened on Fifth Avenue (1947) A Christmas Carol For a generation of radio fans, Lionel Barrymore was the definitive Ebeneezer Scrooge. Alas, Barrymore was crippled by arthritis by the time MGM got around to filming Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol in 1938, so the Scrooge role went to contract player Reginald Owen - who, though hardly in the Barrymore league, does a splendid job. Hugo Butler's screenplay must make some adjustments from the source material. The Ghost of Christmas Past, for example, is played not by a robust middle-aged man but by a beautiful young woman (Ann Rutherford). Impeccably cast, the film includes such reliable character players as Leo G. Carroll (Marley's Ghost), Barry McKay (Scrooge's nephew Fred) and Gene and Kathleen Lockhart (Bob and Mrs. Cratchit). The Lockhart's teenaged daughter June makes her screen debut as one of the Cratchit children, while Terry Kilburn is a fine, non-sentimental Tiny Tim. Commenably short for a major production (69 minutes), MGM's Christmas Carol is one of the best adaptations of the oft-filmed Dickens Yuletide classic, and definitely on equal footing with the more famous 1951 Alastair Sim version. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Shop Around the Corner The Shop Around the Corner is adapted from the Hungarian play by Nikolaus (Miklos) Laszlo. Budapest gift-shop clerk Alfred Kralik (James Stewart) and newly hired shopgirl Klara Novak (Margaret Sullavan) hate each other almost at first sight. Kralik would prefer the company of the woman with whom he is corresponding by mail but has never met. Novak likewise carries a torch for her male pen pal, whom she also has never laid eyes on. It doesn't take a PhD degree to figure out that Kralik and Novak have been writing letters to each other. The film's many subplots are carried by Frank Morgan as the kindhearted shopkeeper and by Joseph Schildkraut as a backstabbing employee whose comeuppance is sure to result in spontaneous applause from the audience. Directed with comic delicacy by Ernst Lubitsch, this was later remade in 1949 as In the Good Old Summertime, and in 1998 as You've Got Mail. It was also musicalized as the 1963 Broadway production She Loves Me. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Christmas in Connecticut War hero Dennis Morgan becomes the object of a publicity stunt staged by magazine publisher Sidney Greenstreet. The corpulent print mogul announces that Morgan has won a Christmas dinner, to be prepared by the magazine's housekeeping expert Barbara Stanwyck in her own Connecticut home. The catch: Not only does Stanwyck not have a home in Connecticut, but she's never been in a kitchen in her life! She also doesn't have a husband (as her articles claim), so Stanwyck's erstwhile beau Reginald Gardiner is pressed into service as the hubby. As for the cooking, that will be handled by master chef S. Z. "Cuddles" Sakall. This solves everything, right? No way, Jose. Long dismissed as a lesser film farce, Christmas in Connecticut has its own irresistible charm, and has in recent years become a perennial Christmas-eve TV attraction. Pay absolutely no attention to the 1992 TV remake, starring Dyan Cannon and directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide It Happened on Fifth Avenue It Happened On Fifth Avenue was easily the most ambitious movie made by the then-newly-organized Allied Artists for at least a decade after its release -- actually, as a "Roy Del Ruth Production," it was made through rather than by Allied Artists, which may explain why it stands so far apart from the Bowery Boys movies and other productions normally associated with Allied during this period. And amazingly, it works, mostly thanks to a genial cast and a reasonably light touch by director/producer Roy Del Ruth, and in spite of a script that needed at least one more ed

It soom becomes obvious, however, that Gloria is a scheming vixen, who worms her way into the affections of the WJM station manager in hopes of taking over Sue Ann's daily TV show. But the Happy Homemaker proves equal to the challenge with a culinary revenge that is both "sweet" and entirely in character. The connivingly ambitious Gloria Munson is played by Linda Kelsey, who latter appeared as journalist Billie Newman on the MTM-produced series Lou Grant. "A New Sue Ann" originally aired on October 26, 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Mary Tyler Moore Show: Lou and That Woman Sheree North makes the first of two series appearances as nightclub singer Charlene Maguire. Having fallen hard for the sexy and personable Charlene, Lou Grant (Ed Asner) is willing to overlook her several former marriages and her romantic liaisons with the rich and famous. But Lou becomes extremely self-conscious and reluctant when Murray (Gavin MacLeod) and Ted (Ted Knight) begin giving him the needle about dating a woman "with a history." The 100th episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, "Lou and That Woman" was originally telecast on October 5, 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Mary Tyler Moore Show: Neighbors With Lou Grant (Ed Asner) still melancholy over the breakup of his marriage, Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) suggests that he'd feel better if he sold his house and moved into a smaller place. As usual, Mary's helpful advice backfires when Lou rents an apartment in her own building. This episode represented one of the first directorial assignments for frequent Mary Tyler Moore Show scriptwriter James Burrows -- but not the last, not by a long shot. "Neighbors" originally aired on December 7, 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Mary Tyler Moore Show: The Outsider Richard Masur guest stars as Bob Larson, an outspoken young consultant who has been brought in by station management to pep up the ratings of "The Six O'Clock News." Problem is, the news staff has done nothing right in the past according to Larson, and apparently will never be able to do anything right in the future. This episode is capped by a touching display of solidarity from the men and women of the newsroom -- though the viewer knows full well that they'll be on each other's nerves again by the time the next episode rolls around. "The Outsider" first aired on October 12, 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Mary Tyler Moore Show: Will
