    My favorite Xmas movie by far. It always puts me in the spirit! Wonderful acting by all involved. Second choice is White Christmas!

    Why would AMC air this movie at such inconvenient times when most people are unable to watch it?

    The Bishop’s wife gets you in that old Christmasy feeling. You wish things were like that today. Cary Grant is the best actor of all time. He makes this movie truly special. I love this movie! I watch it every year.
