    Are you TIRED of the typical holiday fare and want a charming new tradition?  Christmas In Connecticut is the holiday movie for you!  It's the festive tale of a big city gal (the superb Barbara Stanwyck) who writes a popular Martha Stewart-esque column and has to be the perfect Martha Stewart-esque hostess for the holidays when her demanding boss (Sydney Greenstreet) and a very handsome war hero (Dennis Morgan) decide they want to spend Christmas in Connecticut with her on her farm.  The only problem?  The farm and her persona are pure fiction.  Chaos, comedy, and romance ensue.  Come for the cozy Christmas vibes and stay for the feminist undertones and the murder's row of supporting character actors in this delightful and underrated holiday classic.  Sara Greenfield and her guest Ashley Blanchet chat about all this and more on this episode of Talk Classic To Me.

    Dark Victory (1939)

    Dark Victory (1939)

    Want an uplifting film that in no way sounds like it will be an uplifting film based on the description, but somehow still totally is?  Bette Davis gives a beautiful performance in this "Three-Hanky Drama" about a woman with a "prognosis negative" medical diagnosis who must choose how she wants to live out her final days.   Her chemistry with co-star George Brent is truly something special and Humphrey Bogart, Geraldine Fitzgerald, and Ronald Reagan round out the cast in supporting roles.  Sara Greenfield and her guest Ashley Blanchet chat about all this and more on this week's episode of Talk Classic To Me.

    Rear Window (1954)

    Rear Window (1954)

    In the mood for a nail-biting thriller that stays close to home?  James Stewart, Grace Kelly, and Thelma Ritter star in this suspenseful Hitchcock classic whose thrills are made even more impressive by the fact we follow a protagonist who cannot leave his apartment (Stars...they're just like us).   A photographer recovering in his apartment from an accident thinks he witnesses his neighbor (Raymond Burr) commit a murder...or did he?  Find out with Sara Greenfield and her guest Allen Rueckert on this week's episode of Talk Classic To Me.

    Auntie Mame (1958)

    Auntie Mame (1958)

    "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death, LIVE!" is the motto of the enigmatic Auntie Mame, iconically portrayed by the bold and brilliant Rosalind Russell.  A joyful and celebratory movie with excellent physical comedy, rapier wit, and a whole lot of heart.  It's really TOP DRAWER.
