For the second installment of our Classic Holiday Movies week, we watched “Holiday Affair" (1949). It’s a classic love triangle story, starring Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh (she’s SO pretty). Throw in a cute kid, lots of snow, and a happy ending, and you’ve got yourself one undeniably cheery Christmas movie.
The film was entertaining all around, and much shorter than the previous selection (about 90 minutes). I enjoyed some of the signature moves of Old Hollywood (two characters having complete understanding of each other about 5 minutes after meeting, the mouth kiss that looks like it would leave a bruise, and falling in love in about the span of a week)…they just don’t make movies like that anymore…or do they?
