With Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn
Directed by George Cukor
Before Grant, Hepburn and Cukor teamed up for The Philadelphia Story, they collaborated on this stellar romantic comedy. Grant upends Hepburn's highfalutin' upper-crust family, just as they are set to celebrate a posh, dignified New Year's wedding announcement between he and Hepburn's sister. Hilarity and late-Depression era escapism (so timely for us!) ensue. This holiday classic features some of the best performances its leads ever turned in, and a little bit of Vaudevillian acrobatics from Grant, to boot.
Directed by Lynne Ramsay
A father takes his children to a Christmas party that they do not care to attend. Their world changes by the people they meet there. Ramsay, who went on to direct "Ratcatcher" and "Morvern Callar," has a knack for making the most understated gestures powerful.
One Ham's Family
Directed by Tex Avery
A hungry wolf gets more than he bargained for when he goes for some Christmas ham.
