Vintage Holiday Extravaganza
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.
