Christmas Holiday 1944 Deanna Durbin Crime Drama
Stars: Deanna Durbin, Gene Kelly, Richard Whorf
Christmas Holiday Story Line. Due to inclement weather, Lt. Charles Mason is forced to spend Christmas in New Orleans. Recently dumped by his girlfriend and feeling like a fool, the depressed Lieutenant falls in with Jackie Lamont. Lamont is a singer who works at a nightclub and brothel. After attending midnight mass together, she tells her story to Charles. Her real name is Abigail and she fell in love with Robert Manette. After six months of happy married life, Robert is arrested for murder, but Abigail just can’t help loving her no-good husband.
“Christmas Holiday” is a rare find indeed. It’s a different kind of Christmas story, one that doesn’t get to be added in the package of other Christmas movies that air annually on television. Due to its lack of television revivals during the last couple of decades, this film remains only a memory to anyone who has any recollection of ever seeing it – until now.
Tagline: Durbin… In her most dramatic glory.
