Add to that list

"The Grinch"
"Its a Wonderful Life"
"Leaving it to the imagination" is highly overrated.




Sandy is a B6 F1 Realdoll. In addition she has several F1 expression faces as well as standard F10 and f11 faces. She also has several sets of reuseable "Real Breast" prosthetic breasts.

     Among my favorite Christmas shows are  a whole slew of Hallmark movies and:

   While You Were Sleeping
   White Christmas
   Holiday Inn (not technically a Christmas movie)
   Miracle On 34th Street
   A Christmas Carol (with George C. Scott)
   Noel
   The Gift of Love: A Christmas Story
   The X-files: How the Ghosts Stole Christmas
    with Edward Asner and Lily Tomlin (not technically a Christmas movie)
   A Claymation Christmas Celebration

     I always save the next two for Christmas Eve
   The Polar Express
   The Nativity Story

     I have other Christmas movies on DVD (Rankin-Bass cartoons, etc.), but with no children around I seldom watch them. Some Hallmark movies are on YouTube, but the video is crappy and the sound fades out and in on some. They might have been ripped from DVD, but the copy protection messes up the transfer. I will look for them at Amazon and the Hallmark Movies Now website.

Esperanza is a Tera Patrick inflatable doll.

For more years than I care to remember the BBC run 'The Guns of Navarone' or 'Where Eagles Dare' over Christmas.
Why war movies at this time of year is bizzare to say the least so these are the ones I'm hoping they won't run !

Camp has chosen my fave as well ,good old Bing, this one was another played every year, be nice to see that again .

GREAT List!

Will try to keep a compiled list (see original post) at least for a few days, in case you're looking for something to watch during the holiday.

'Santa Claus Conquers The Martians' 1964

Santa Claus appears on a talk show and the TV signal is picked up by the Martians whom want to kidnap him for themselves.

CensorTube took down the full MST3K version but there are some tribute videos.

Or the full movie.
