 I  was so happy this was on the list to share. I am such an old movie buff. The Golden Era or Golden Age of Movies spans the years of 1910 to1960s.  During this time,  movies were a real escape from real life,  dreams played out on the silver screen. It was the sweet spot of entertainment before almost every household had a television. Creativity and technology worked in harmony until the era of mundane storylines to fill an hour came into play.

First up is one of my all-time favorites. Christmas in Connecticut is a perfect romantic comedy with beloved film icons.

The Bishop’s Wife, starring Cary Grant (swoon!), Loretta Young, and David Niven is one of the most endearing “get back to what really matters” movies around.

Another endearing musical featuring the one and only Judy Garland. This one is such a jewel, from the vibrant cinematography and the storyline – it’s a must-watch to be sure.  Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis! Meet me at the fair!


Next up, is a story that will have you laughing throughout the film and tearing up at the end. 

It Happened On 5th Avenue


For a bit of a change in the romantic genre, try Meet John Doe. Barbara Stanwyck is a saucy journalist who pulls a publicity stunt and ends up falling in love with the sincere Gary Cooper.


The Season would not be complete without this uber classic take on Charles Dickens society changing story of

A Christmas Carol
