Christmas in Connecticut (1945) Warner Bros Pictures
Directed By: Peter Godfrey
Starring: Barbara Stanwyck, Sidney Greenstreet, Dennis Morgan, Reginald Gardiner & S Z Sakall
This one of my favorite Christmas favorites and a true classic that one can see every year! I have to see it annually along with "White Christmas" it simply would not be the holiday season with out this must see movie!
Tagline: "It's the fun show that's the one show to see!"
Elizabeth Lane (Stanwyck) is the original Martha Stewart of the 1940's. Being the "perfect food columnist" for a New York City newspaper, Elizabeth loves the fame that she has being the all around best at home entertaining possible. She writes about her lovely country estate in Connecticut along with the fireplace including her perfect recipes that everyone wants to emulate. There is one HUGE issue with this image of the perfect columnist that she lives in an apartment in New York City rather than in Connecticut and can not cook to save her life! It is all a lie which is about to blow up in her face literally.
