Synopsis


Christmas in Connecticut
War hero Dennis Morgan becomes the object of a publicity stunt staged by magazine publisher Sidney Greenstreet. The corpulent print mogul announces that Morgan has won a Christmas dinner, to be prepared by the magazine's housekeeping expert Barbara Stanwyck in her own Connecticut home. The catch: Not only does Stanwyck not have a home in Connecticut, but she's never been in a kitchen in her life! She also doesn't have a husband (as her articles claim), so Stanwyck's erstwhile beau Reginald Gardiner is pressed into service as the hubby. As for the cooking, that will be handled by master chef S. Z. "Cuddles" Sakall. This solves everything, right? No way, Jose. Long dismissed as a lesser film farce, Christmas in Connecticut has its own irresistible charm, and has in recent years become a perennial Christmas TV attraction. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Barbara Stanwyck shines as a Martha Stewart-type magazine columnist who gets in over her head when she agrees to cook Christmas dinner at her Connecticut farm, where she lives with her husband and baby, for her boss and a returning war hero in order to save her job. Just one problem: She can't cook. Also: There's no hubby or baby either. This romantic comedy works all year long.

    First let me say that this is a good little movie--typical of the era with a cute plot and a good cast. But I suspect they put the word "Christmas" in the title to try and make it a Christmas movie, because there is nothing about the spirit of Christmas or the Christmas season in this movie. It is quite enjoyable, nevertheless, and I'm sure I'll watch it this Christmas.

    This has always been one of my top Christmas movies of all time since I was a young girl. Granted I'm 35 now and it was filmed before in was born there is something so beautiful in the story line and Barbara Stanwyck's character reminds me so much of myself. The costumes are great, the acting is superb and the DVD quality is wonderful!

    Acting was routinely good years back and stories had plots. Even a comedy such as this holds up after decades gone by. This is a fun movie...one of those with entertaining mix ups that occur even though intentions are good. Saucy for its day, it is good family fun now. Worth having in a movie library.

    This movie is a classic - Barbara Stanwyck is wonderful in the role of a columnist pretending to be a perfect housewife to Dennis Morgan's war hero who is a big fan of hers. Everything is not as it seems though. Funny, sweet and a bit predictable laughter and love ensue.

    Barbara Stanwyck is one of my all-time favorites, and she shines in Christmas In Connecticut. Warner Bros. does the film justice with a strong Blu-ray release. I was surprised to find this in one of those clear, round, plastic Discount Bins.

    I love this movie and I had been searching for a copy on blu-ray after reading such good reviews about the quality. I found this movie at Best Buy at a price much lower (by $10) than I had found anywhere; including Amazon.

    If you love old movies, which I do, you will love this one. It has humor, romance and just plain fun with no offensive language or scenes. The whole family can watch this and feel good.
