One Magic Christmas [DVD] [1985]

  • SKU: 6662685
  • Release Date: 09/07/2004
  • Rating: G
The "magic" in One Magic Christmas is often (and surprisingly) of the "black" variety. Like Jimmy Stewart before her, worn-out wife and mother Mary Steenburgen wishes that she'd never been born. And like Stewart, Steenburgen is visited by a guardian angel, in this case the western-garbed Harry Dean Stanton. Instead of granting Steenburgen's wish, Stanton shows her what life would be like without Christmas--and that vision is as grim as anything you're ever likely to see in any Holiday film. Throughout the horrendous tragedies heaped upon Steenburgen, we are comforted in the knowledge that Stanton is working in concert with Steenburgen's young daughter. Steenburgen learns her lesson of course, but what a ride!

      I loved this movie when it came out many years ago and I was so excited to see it available to purchase. Great movie and similar to the classic, A Wonderful Life. I know this is an old picture but I think the quality could have been better. There were a couple of places where the movie skipped a little and the sound was poor throughout.
