It’s a Dead Heat! Ralph, Rudolph & George Bailey Are Tied for No. 1 Holiday Movie of All Time
A few weeks ago we decided to find out what the No. 1 Christmas movie of all time was. If you were stuck on a deserted island with nothing but a DVD player, what holiday movie would you bring along? It was predictable that “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “A Christmas Story” and clay-mation classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” would be popular, but they’re tied at 28 votes each! Let’s run this poll one more week and see if we can break the tie. Folks, it’s time to rally and come to the aid of your all-time favorite.
While I was not surprised by your TOP picks, I was quite disturbed how poorly some of personal favorites did. 0 votes for “Babes in Toyland”? Only 3 for Tim Allen’s “The Santa Clause” series? But the real travesty was the big, fat zero for “Santa Claus The Movie.” This 1980s classic with John Lithgow and Dudley Moore was a staple for me growing up. I think everyone has just forgotten its magic. Check out the trailer:
And I know “Nightmare Before Christmas” is mostly considered a Halloween flic, but I though at least some of you would pick it as a holiday favorite. Oh well, at least one clay-mation made the list.
