I used to have a few but because of the internet I haven't watched any in ages…

Actually I think my fave Christmas movies were The Great Race (the inspiration for Wacky Racers) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. They're not about Christmas but were always shown around that time her in Australia when I was little.

The Laurel and Hardy March of the Wooden Soldiers. I also watched for the Disney Babes in Toyland because I had the soundtrack album.

But as I got older I became a fan of various versions of A Christmas Carol. I have six that I'll be watching later this week.

Though not a Christmas movie for me Blake Edwards's The Great Race is one of my favorites. Tony Curtis as the clean cut hero, Keenan Wynn, Peter Falk and one of Jack Lemon's greatest comic performances.

Two films were inspired by it include Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines and those Daring Young Men in their Jaunting Jalopies. Both with Terry-Thomas. Dudley Moore and Peter Cook were in one during their great comedy duo years. Gert Frobe in a great comic portrayal.

I had childhood crushes on both Susan Hampshire and Natalie Wood.

And Chitty, Chitty, bang, bang A Roald Dahl script of an Ian Fleming novel with both Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) and Benny Hill. And I'm a huge Dick Van Dyke fan. Can still recall most of the lyrics to the songs.

Most versions of A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life. I also like The Nativity Story.

I have several Christmas Carol (Muppets, Patrick Stewart, Kelsey Grammer, and Scrooged) favorites. I also like White Christmas, Home Alone 2, and Hogfather.

Die Hard…
Okay, maybe not! I guess really though, the Alastair Sim A Christmas Carol would probably be up there for me. Scrooged, National Lampoon's, and the guilty pleasure that is Jingle All The Way! Watership Down, for if I'm in the mood to get deeply disturbed at Christmas! The Wizard of Oz, while not a film I actually watch, has a certain sentimental value to me for a few reasons, so I'll occasionally watch a couple of minutes just for that.
