I can’t say if this movie stands up to the passage of time. I don’t know if it can speak to children today as it once so lovingly spoke to me. I do know that there are 3 Christmas movies that consistently bring a smile to my face simply by the fond memories of family and love that company them. This movie is definitely one for me. Bonus feature: In spite of the Rudolf reference, it is not much of a commercial film, a rare commodity even for the time.
