Editor's Note
The CLASSIC CHRISTMAS COLLECTION presents a double feature of timeless holiday viewing: in Frank Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946), a goodhearted but despondent man (Jimmy Stewart) is saved from suicide by his guardian angel; and in Michael Curtiz's WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954), two talented song-and-dance men (Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye) team up to become one of the hottest acts in show business.

Professional Reviews

Variety 9 of 10
[White] Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, along with VistaVision, keep the enteratinment going in this fancifully staged production, clicking well...The directorial handling by Michael Curtiz gives a smooth blend of music (13 numbers plus snatches of others) and drama, and in the climax creates a genuine heart tug that will squeeze tears...Crosby wraps up his portion of the show with deceptive ease, shuffling a mean hoof in the dances and generally aquitting himself like a champion. Kaye takes in his stride the dance, song and comedy demands of his assignment, keeping Crosby on his toes at all times.

ReelViews 10 of 10
[Life] What is it about this film, an uplifting, sentimental fable about the importance of the individual, that strikes a responsive chord with so many viewers? Some might argue that it has something to do with the season, but I don't buy that reasoning. It's a Wonderful Life is just as good in July as in December -- the time of the year has little to do with motion picture quality. Rather, I think It's a Wonderful Life has earned its legion of followers because it effectively touches upon one basic truth of life that we all would like to believe -- that each of us, no matter how apparently insignificant, has the power to make a difference, and that the measure of our humanity has nothing to do with fame or money, but with how we live our life on a day-to-day basis. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 9 of 10
[Life] Though producer-director Frank Capra never intended it as a Christmas film, It's A Wonderful Life has nonetheless become a beloved seasonal favorite, primarily because its climactic scene occurs on Christmas Eve - and because it's a film about giving...When the film first played in postwar theaters, critics blasted it for the sentimentality that characterizes a Capra film, and it lost $525,000 at the box office. But the movie has grown more beloved over the years, partly because it reaffirms the values of a WWII generation - patriotism, hard work, and sacrifice - while ushering in the values of the Baby Boomer/Eisenhower years (including, among other things, the notion that part of the American dream lies in family, home ownership, 2.3 children, and not just tolerable, but wonderful neighbors). - James Plath

DVD Verdict 9 of 10
[White] The 1954 musical White Christmas had the advantage of the biggest selling song of the time for its title, and adding the huge fame of stars like Bing Crosby made it one of the biggest films of the year and a Christmas tradition in many households ever since. The thin romantic comedy plot is overshadowed by the numerous song and dance numbers, making for a sentimental spectacle...I really enjoyed the film despite not being a particular fan of musicals. I found the dancing especially entertaining, with Vera Ellen really standing out from the crowd. For fans of this Christmas staple, I see no reason not to recommend purchase of the disc. Some might just want to rent it during the holiday season, but I'm glad it's on my shelf. - Norman Short
