Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will be airing lots of holiday movies throughout the month of December. One of the movies they’ll be airing on Christmas Eve (@ 8 pm) is the 1940’s movie Remember the Night (Remember the Night IMDB page).

The movie stars Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray. (The pair also teamed up for the movie Double Indemity which isn’t something I just knew – that’d be cool- but I do know how to work these here Interwebs). Remember the Night is now finally out on DVD.

“It’s one of those quirky twists of fate that a film as exceptional as Remember the Night has been so overlooked when it comes to great Christmas movies,” said TCM host Robert Osborne. “It’s our hope at TCM that our special Christmas Eve showing of this holiday gem, now fully remastered, will help give it a much-deserved new life.”

The plot of the movie has MacMurray as a prosecutor, and Stanwyck as a shoplifter. The pair falls in love – as all the best prosecutors and shoplifters do. I’ve actually never seen this film but I’m definitely going to look for it now.

Other movies shown during December will include: A Christmas Carol, Little Women (not the one that most of us have seen with Winona Ryder), It Happened on 5th Avenue (I might need to see this), Meet Me in St. LouisSex and the City fans all want to see now (a movie that ), The Shop Around the Corner (did you know that the movie You’ve Got Mail with Meg Ryan was a modern remake?) and The Lion in Winter.
