Top Four Classic Thanksgiving Films

Guest Author - Amber Grey

You probably didn't think that we could devise a list of classic Thanksgiving films for you to watch this holiday season, but we did! Here is our top four favorite classic films for Thanksgiving:

1. "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947) Directed by George Seaton and starring Maureen O'Hara, Natalie Wood, Edmund Gwenn and William Frawley. When a Macy's Department store Santa, who goes by the name of "Kris Kringle," claims to be the real Santa Clause, he may have to prove it to the city of New York and to a very disbelieving nine-year old Natalie Wood as well. This film might as well be just as synonymous with Thanksgiving as "It's A Wonderful Life" is with Christmas, which is why it is our #1 pick.

2. "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" (1973) We follow the Peanut Gallery gang as the celebrate the two major traditions of Thanksgiving - the football games and the big turkey dinner. Or is that two turkey dinners?

3. "By The Light of the Silvery Moon" (1953) Directed by David Butler. Starring Doris Day, Gordon MacRae and Mary Wickes. This is a sequel to "On Moonlight Bay" (1951) but this quirky musical-film is so much fun to watch, you do not necessarily need to watch the first one. We find the Winfield family living in a new house in Indiana, centered around Thanksgiving with the on-again off-again romance of "Marjorie Winfield" (Day) and "William S. Sherman" (MacRae) with her little brother's silly antics in trying to keep the family turkey alive.

4. "Christmas In Connecticut" (1945). In this film, Barbra Stanwyck stars is "Elizabeth Lane," one of the country's most sought after female food columnist. There's only one thing, Miss. Lane knows nothing about cooking! And she's put into some hot water when her newspaper boss wants Miss. Lane to host and serve two war heroes and their nurse on Christmas. We love this film so much that we have placed it on two of our lists. It first appeared in our "Spend The Holidays With Stanwyck" article and we decided to put it on this list as we think it's a great film to ease everybody into the spirit of holidays.
