This is one of the most beautiful movies made. I wish the movies today would take a look at this movie. She is a beautiful lady and a great actress. I purchased the DVD and am so happy I did.

This is one of my very favorite movies. The special effects, by today's standards, are pretty simple but, for the year it was made, were pretty spectacular and ahead of their time. It's one of those movies that puts forth the true meaning of Christmas and I look forward to watching it year after year.
