Forgive me, I know Christmas was 4 months ago, but tonight’s choice is a Christmas movie. An old, black and white movie that charmed me the moment my husband introduced me to it.
Kristian’s 6th underrated movie is:
Holiday Affair (1949) Directed by Don Hartman
Connie, a commercial spy returns a model train set to a large retail store. She meets store clerk, Steve who calls her out, but agrees not to tell his manager, who finds out and fires him, just days before Christmas.
Connie and Steve have lunch, tell each other their stories, and he makes her laugh, but there’s just one problem, Connie is already involved with another man, named Carl.
This movie does an exceptional job at showing that the above quote is true. Love is a strong feeling, and we can’t control when love will find us or if the timing is right, but what is meant to be always finds a way.
I also love this movie because Steve has the backbone to say how he feels about Connie. There’s no beating around the bush or walking on egg shells, he just tells her how it is and doesn’t care who knows it. It’s a trait that I admire.
Although is is a Christmas movie, it’s a wonderful film to watch any time of the year.
Have you seen Holiday Affair? Did you enjoy it? What underrated movie(s) do you recommend?
