One of my favorite holiday movies is Christmas in Connecticut starring Barbara Stanwyck. The story is about a famous food writer who lies in her column about living on a farm, raising her children and being a good cook. In reality she is an unmarried New Yorker who can’t boil an egg. When her editor insists she will spend Christmas entertaining him and a heroic sailor as a good publicity stunt, her job is on the line.
She quickly rounds up a cottage, husband, baby and cook before the guests arrive, but real trouble begins when ‘married’ Stanwyck begins to fall in love with the engaged navy man.
Check this fun film out from the Gardiner Library sometime.
