‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is best Christmas movieDecember 25th, 2011 - 2:16 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 25 (IANS) The classic movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” has topped a poll of the best Christmas films of all time.
The 1946 drama, starring James Stewart and Donna Reed, toped the survey conducted by Britain’s Radio Times.
“The Muppet Christmas Carol” came second, while “Love Actually”, starring Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, was third. A surprise entry on the list was “Die Hard”, which was at the eighth spot.
“As it is the season to be jolly, I won’t disguise my rosy-cheeked joy that the poll named ‘Die Hard’ one of the top 10 Christmas movies of all time,” contactmusic.com quoted Radio Times film editor Andrew Collins as saying.
“It’s just as capable of producing festive tingles as the more traditional, December-released ‘Muppet Christmas Carol’ or the cockle-warming ‘Love Actually’, which was literally gift wrapped in 2003 with a lovely red ribbon tied around its twinkling poster image,” Collins added.
