Product Details

This potpourri of Christmas-themed theatrical television and industrial short subjects is perfect fare for the holiday season, guaranteed to evoke nostalgia for a simpler time in America. "A Present for Santa Claus," for example, visits the average post-World War II family at Yuletide. Christmas Around the World and Christmas Through the Ages show how the birth of Christ has been celebrated in other countries and cultures. Perhaps most fascinating are the Hollywood-produced clips in which such major stars as Cary Grant, Bette Davis, Gary Cooper, Shirley Temple, and Myrna Loy exhort moviegoers to spread holiday cheer by purchasing war bonds and Christmas Seals. Bonus material includes the Our Gang short "Good Cheer," and a collection of TV toy commercials from the 50s and 60s, two of which star future Academy Award winner Patty Duke.
