Classic Christmas movies

It’s a Wonderful Life is re-released on DVD and Blu-ray on 8 November and even more wonderful than ever before, containing both re-mastered black and white and colour versions.

Regarded by many as the most-loved Christmas film of all time, It’s a Wonderful Life stars the unforgettable James Stewart as George Bailey and features a superb ensemble cast including Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore.

George Bailey (Stewart) has spent his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town, Bedford Falls. One Christmas Eve, he is broken and suicidal over the misplacing of an $8,000 loan and the machinations of the evil millionaire, Mr. Potter (Barrymore). His guardian angel, Clarence (Henry Travers), falls to Earth and shows him what would have become of his town, family, and friends if he had never been born. George meant so much to so many people; should he really throw it all away?

Holiday Inn is released on DVD on 22 November containing the re-mastered black and white version and for the first time ever, a stunning new colour version. With music by Irving Berlin, songs by Bing Crosby (including ‘White Christmas’) and dancing by Fred Astaire, Holiday Inn is one of the most delightful and memorable musicals of all time.

Crosby plays Jim Hardy, a song and dance man who leaves showbiz to open a Connecticut Inn. Astaire plays Ted Hanover, Hardy’s former partner and rival in love. And of course there are the girls (Marjorie Reynolds and Virginia Dale), an agent (Walter Abel) and plenty of lavish song and dance routines with spectacular production numbers.
