We’re in the final stretch of our Christmas Movies A to Z and today we’ve picked Remember the Night for the letter R.
The 1940 classic was directed by Mitchell Leisen and written by Preston Sturges. It starred Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray.
Lee Leander (Stanwyck) is caught shoplifting just before Christmas and finds herself in serious trouble as its her third offence. Her prosecutor John Sargent (Fred MacMurray) postpones her trial due to the Christmas season but starts to feel sorry for her.
He arranges bail and takes her to his mother’s for Christmas. As Lee and John spend time together, they fall for one another causing an issue for their upcoming trial where they should be on opposite sides.
A classic romantic comedy, Remember the Night adds a layer of emotion by setting the story during the Christmas period. The performances of the two leads are amazing and they have such incredible chemistry.
If you like your Christmas films a little old school, then this is the perfect choice to snuggle up in front of the fire to.
