Favorite Things: Day Ninteen

Here's an easy one, tonight, one of my favorite Christmas movies is on Turner Classic Movies, Christmas in Connecticut. It's the story of Elizabeth Lane (Barbara Stanwyck) a magazine columnist who is pretty much the 1945 equivalent of Martha Stewart, only she has no clue how to cook or do any of the other things that she writes about. When her magazine's owner decides that she should host a heroic Sailor at her farm (which she does not actually have) for Christmas, hijinks prevail while she tries to get it done and not lose her job.

While that all sounds very stupid, believe me, it's all done very well and very smartly. It's on at 8:45 EST and I think it's great, here's the trailer:
