Justice League Of America (1997)
Starring Matthew Settle and Kimberly Oja

Beautiful print and will play in all DVD players.
An evil Weather Man intent on destroying New Metro City with a series of malevolent meteorological mishaps? Can the super-powered (and semi-employed) Justice League of America save the day? Or will New Metro be drowned in a humongous tidal wave?
Directors: Félix Enríquez Alcalá, Lewis Teague
Writers: Lorne Cameron, David Hoselton

Stars: Matthew Settle, Kimberly Oja, John Kassir, Michelle Hurd, Kenny Johnston, David Krumholtz, Elisa Donovan, David Ogden Stiers, Miguel Ferrer, Robert Gallo
Although developed by CBS to be a pilot for a television series, it never aired in US markets, but did air in the UK and Europe.
The Green Lantern in this movie is a composite of three of the ring bearers, the classic Hal Jordan, modern Kyle Rayner and '80s-era Guy Gardner. Hal makes up the character's basic appearance, sans mask; Kyle makes up the mask, badge and wrist gauntlet; while the name and vest come from Guy.
Next to the phone in Green Lantern/Atom's apt, there's a perfectly framed picture of an Air Force jet, similar to a comic panel. The Green Lantern Hal Jordan was a test pilot fresh from the Air Force.
Very loosely based upon The "Justice League" and "JLI" comic books from the late-1980s which were written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis.
Order this rarely-seen and hard-to-find classic today for the low price of $5.99.

Beauty And The Beast (1946)

Stars: Jean Marais, Josette Day, Mila Parély

Jean Cocteau's adaptation of Beauty and the Beast (originally released in France as La Belle et la Bête) stars Josette Day as Beauty and Jean Marais as the Beast. When a merchant (Marcel André) is told that he must die for picking a rose from the Beast's garden, his courageous daughter (Day) offers to go back to the Beast in her father's place. the Beast falls in love with her and proposes marriage on a nightly basis; she refuses, having pledged her troth to a handsome prince (also played by Marais). Eventually, however, she is drawn to the repellent but strangely fascinating Beast, who tests her fidelity by giving her a key, telling her that if she doesn't return it to him by a specific time, he will die of grief. The film features a musical score by Georges Auric.
A Game Of Death (1945)

Stars: John Loder, Audrey Long, Edgar Barrier

RKO Radio's A Game of Death was the first official remake of Richard Connell's The Most Dangerous Game, given a contemporary WW2 twist. Novelist Rainsford (John Loder) and brother-and-sister shipwreck victims Ellen (Audrey Long) and Robert (Russell Wade) are among the innocents stranded on remote island at the mercy of Nazi madman Krieger (Edgar Barrier). Fancying himself a sportsman, Krieger offers his captives an hour's head start before he begins hunting them down like animals. The by-now-familiar plotline is not as compelling as in the original 1932 version of Most Dangerous Game or the 1956 Mexican-based remake (Run for the Sun), thanks to the pedestrian acting of everyone except Edgar Barrier. Still, Robert Wise imbues the story with plenty of tension, especially in the closing reels.
A Gift For Heidi (1958)

Stars: Sandy Descher, Douglas Fowley, Van Dyke Parks

This movie is about one summer holiday in the life of the famous children's book character Heidi, the orphan girl who lives with her grandfather (whom Heidi, like everybody else including the cast list, calls "Alm Uncle") on the outskirts of a small village in the Alps. Heidi has a gift of three carved wooden figures made by a craftsman neighbour: Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar. However, rather than gold, frankincense, and myrrh, her grandfather and the village doctor gradually teach Heidi the idea that the gifts they bring are faith, charity and hope. Adventures include Heidi entering her friend Peter for a singing competition without telling him; befriending a rich but lonely man from the big city who is an associate of the father of Heidi's little girl friend who comes to stay for the holidays; and joining Peter on an expedition up the highest mountain in the neighbourhood, in a bid to rescue a soldier and his bride who on their honeymoon decide (against the advice of the children and Alm Uncle that it is dangerous at this time of year) to climb the peak, only to be trapped by an avalanche below them, after the bride injures her ankle. The solution: call in the U.S. army -- hence all the military bit parts in the cast list.
A Girl, A Guy, And A Gob (1941)

Stars: George Murphy, Lucille Ball, Edmond O'Brien

The girl is stenographer Dot Duncan (Lucille Ball); the guy is her boss, stuffy young shipping magnate Stephen Herrick (Edmond O'Brien); and the gob is a brash sailor known as Coffee Cup (George Murphy). Not surprisingly, the plot involves the efforts by the self-effacing Stephen and the self-confident Coffee Cup to woo and win the lovely Dot. And that's about all the "story" there is; the rest of the picture is jam-packed with round-robin comic misunderstandings and wild slapstick setpieces. A Girl, a Guy and a Gob was one of two RKO Radio films produced by silent-screen great Harold Lloyd, who reportedly dropped in on the set from time to time to offer a bit of sage comedy advice (note the "handkerchief" bit utlized by Edmond O'Brien; it had previously done service in Lloyd's own Welcome Danger). Not as big a moneymaker as Harold's starring features of the 1920s, the RKO film nonetheless turned a tidy profit for the studio.

Miracle On 34th Street (1973)

Stars: Sebastian Cabot, Jane Alexander, David Hartman

The 1947 film comedy Miracle on 34th Street starred Edmund Gwenn as a bearded gentleman named Kris Kringle, who was convinced that he was the genuine Santa Claus. The earlier Miracle was good enough as it stood, so why remake it? Still, the full-color 1973 Miracle on 34th Street has the considerable advantage of Sebastian Cabot, his trademarked beard dyed snowy white, as Kringle, so it isn't as bad as expected. The story, which involves the commercial and legal ramifications of the "real" Santa taking a job as a department store Santa at Macy's, was barely updated for the 1970s, meaning that several of the plot devices--including a nasty psychiatrist who has Kringle committed--were somewhat anachronistic. The uplifting final scene, wherein a cynical little girl becomes a true believer of Santa Claus (as do the adults in the story), still works well in the remake, even though Suzanne Davidson isn't in the same league as the original Miracle's Natalie Wood. The TV-movie version of Miracle on 34th Street wasn't too successful, but that didn't stop John Hughes from churning out a second remake in 1994.
A Smoky Mountain Christmas (1986)

Stars: Dolly Parton, Lee Majors, Bo Hopkins

Smoky Mountain Christmas is the sort of fare that always seems to pop up exclusively during the Yuletide season: an original made-for-TV musical fantasy. Dolly Parton plays a country-music star (imaginative casting, this) who finds herself stranded in the Tennessee backwoods with taciturn mountaineer Lee Majors. Parton also touches base with seven orphaned young'uns...and a witch (Anita Morris). John Ritter makes an uncredited cameo appearance as the judge who presides over the inevitable climactic adoption proceedings. First broadcast December 14, 1986 (directly opposite the ratings-grabbing The Promise), A Smoky Mountain Christmas was directed "con brio" by Henry Winkler.
A Christmas Memory (1966)

Stars: Geraldine Page, Donnie Melvin, Lavinia Cassels

Its the last Christmas together in Depression era Alabama of a sensitive boy and his elderly cousin who was his closest friend. The two raise enough money to buy the ingredients for 30 fruit cakes, sent mostly to strangers like FDR. They spend Christmas day flying the kites they made for each other while Capote's voice over explains their separation, followed by their dog's passing, and a few years later her's.
An Old-Fashioned Christmas (1965)

Stars: John Raitt, The Columbus Boychoir, Jacques d'Amboise

Martha Scott, opens with a tableau set in a small town in 1909. Townspeople gradually leave their still-frame poses, coming to life to sing holiday tunes. Melissa Hayden, as the Snow Queen, and Jacques D'Amboise, as the Prince, perform the "Snow" pas de deux from "The Nutcracker," with music by Tchaikovsky. The ensemble of singers perform carols in "Grandma's house," followed by a Christmas message from Frederick R. Kappel. A church scene with the Columbus Boychoir singing "Adeste Fideles," "The First Noel," and "Carol of the Bells". Martha Scott reads a biblical passage from Luke. Gianna d'Angelo and the Boychoir close singing "O Holy Night" and "Silent Night".

Kappel and The Schola Cantorum. Highlights: Lisa della Casa sings "Gesu Bambino". Edward Villella and Violette Verdy performs in the Nutcracker ballet. Phyllis Curtin sings "O Holy Night". The Lennon Sisters perform "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". Earl Wrightson and Lois Hunt sing traditional carols in a Victorian setting ,a scene which is capped off by the Columbus Boychoir filing indoors in a procession and singing three carols. Jane Wyatt closes the progam with a reading of "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus".
Christmas Miracle In Caufield, USA (1977)

Stars: Mitch Ryan, Kurt Russell, Andrew Prine

This made-for-TV film concerns the true story of striking coal workers who are imprisoned in a collapsed mine on Christmas Eve, 1951.
Holiday Inn (1942)

Stars: Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Marjorie Reynolds

Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire star in Holiday Inn as a popular nightclub song-and-dance team. When his heart is broken by his girlfriend, Crosby decides to retire from the hustle-bustle of big city showbiz. He purchases a rustic New England farm and converts it to an inn, which he opens to the public (floor show and all) only on holidays. This barely logical plot device allows ample space for a steady flow of Irving Berlin holiday songs (including an incredible blackface number in honor of Lincoln's Birthday). Oddly enough, the most memorable song in the bunch, the Oscar-winning White Christmas, is not offered as a production number but as a simple ballad sung by Crosby to an audience of one: leading lady Marjorie Reynolds. Fred Astaire's best moment is his Fourth of July firecracker dance. Ah, but what about the plot? Well, it seems that Astaire wants to make a film about Crosby's inn, starring their mutual discovery Reynolds. BING briefly loses Reynolds to Astaire, but wins her back during the filming of a musical number on a Hollywood soundstage (eleven years earlier, BING enjoyed a final clinch with Marion Davies under surprisingly similar conditions in Going Hollywood). As with most of Irving Berlin's "portfolio" musicals of the 1940s, the song highlights of Holiday Inn are too numerous to mention. This delightful film is far superior to its unofficial 1954 remake, White Christmas.
Christmas Holiday (1944)

Stars: Deanna Durbin, Gene Kelly, Richard Whorf

Don't be fooled by the title. Christmas Holiday is a far, far cry from It's a Wonderful Life. Told in flashback, the story begins as Jackie (Deanna Durbin), marries Southern aristocrat Robert Monette (Gene Kelly). Unfortunately, Robert has inherited his family's streak of violence and instability and soon drags Jackie into a life of misery. When her husband commits murder, Jackie is compelled by Robert's equally degenerate mother (Gale Sondergaard) to cover up the crime. When Robert is arrested, Jackie, tormented by the love she still holds for her husband, runs away from the family home, changing her name and securing work as a singer in a New Orleans dive. Robert escapes from prison and makes his way to Jackie's dressing room. Holding a reporter hostage, he threatens to kill both Jackie and the waylaid sailor who has been listening to her story. An astonishing change of pace from Deanna Durbin's usual lightweight musical fare, Christmas Holiday (based, believe it or not, on a story by W. Somerset Maugham) is one of the bleakest film noirs of the 1940s. Durbin is merely adequate in her role, but Gene Kelly gives a disturbingly convincing portrayal as a man virtually devoured by his inner demons. Robert Siodmak directs with his usual flair, using a taut, suspenseful screenplay by Herman J. Mankiewicz.
Holiday Affair (1949)

Stars: Robert Mitchum, Janet Leigh, Wendell Corey

A disarming little trifle, Holiday Affair has in the years since its original release become a Yuletide perennial on television. War widowJanet Leigh hasn't the money to buy the model train that her son Gordon Gebert wants for Christmas. Robert Mitchumoverhears the boy's plight, and offers to purchase the train for him, even though it will deplete his own money supply. This little gesture of kindness from Mitchum snowballs into a series of comic complications, thanks in part to the unwelcome intervention of Leigh's stuffed-shirt attorney boyfriend Wendell Corey. Harry Morgan shows up towards the end as a flustered night-court judge who helps tie some of the loose plot ends together. Based on a short story by John D. Weaver, A Holiday Affair didn't do too well at the box office, but its afterlife has been most satisfactory.
Desperately Seeking Santa (2011)

Stars:  Laura Vandervoort, Nick Zano, Paula Brancati 
 
Jennifer, a young, ambitious executive running promotions at a failing Boston mall comes up with a genius promotional gimmick to save her workplace and position herself for advancement: hold a "Hunky Santa" contest to replace the old Mall Santa. David, a local man trying to save his family's pizzeria, ultimately wins the contest and sparks fly between him and Jennifer. However, complications ensue when it comes to light that the company Jennifer works for is the same one trying to run David's family out of business.
Remember The Night (1940)

Stars: Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Beulah Bondi

A romantic comedy drama directed by former art director Mitchell Leisen and based on a skillful Preston Sturges screenplay. Barbara Stanwyck stars as Lee Leander, a New York City shoplifter who is arrested just before Christmas after trying to filch an expensive piece of jewelry. Her trial delayed until after the holiday, Lee comes to the attention of an assistant district attorney, John Sargent (Fred MacMurray). Although he will be expected to prosecute Lee in a few days, John takes pity on the prisoner, who is from his home state of Indiana. He arranges for her to be released for the holidays and escorts her home, but her mother (Georgia Caine) is not interested in a reunion. So John takes Lee to his own festivities, where Lee is bowled over by the love and affection of the Sargent family, particularly John's mother (Beulah Bondi), who is so unlike her own. Lee and John fall in love, but their return to the Big Apple and Lee's trial loom large over their romance.
