Dec. 23: Christmas in Connecticut (1945)

What makes it Christmassy

It’s in the title, dummy.

Chore Watching Index: 6/10

Elaborate plot setup takes almost a half hour to understand. Typical forties movie pace—like a lame horse pulling a heavy sled through inches of snow.

Standout Performances

Barbara Stanwyck and an ugly rocking chair. I mean UGLY.


Black and White Romantic Comedy


A raw egg in milk is one of the first scenes that start this movie. (Referred to as “a nice raw egg”).
