A Christmas Wish 1950 Jimmy Durante Comedy Family NR Black & White
Stars: Jimmy Durante, Terry Moore, Tom Drake
Also known as “The Great Rupert”.
A Christmas Wish is a heartwarming holiday classic about a New York family (led by Durante) who is down on their luck at Christmas time. Shortly before Christmas, they move into a ground floor apartment where Rupert the squirrel lives in the attic rafters. Just when it seems that the holiday will come and go without so much as a Christmas tree, Rupert acts as the family’s guardian angel, not only saving Christmas, but changing their lives forever.
The film is enlivened with the warmth and sweetness of an unforgettable love story between Terry Moore and Tom Drake. Rupert the Squirrel (created using George Pal’s Academy Award winning animation technique) will charm young and old alike. Jimmy Durante shines when he sings Jingle Bells and other well-loved Christmas carols in the evocative voice that made him one of America’s recording legends.

Did you know?
George Pal’s stop-motion animation used in creating the illusion of a dancing squirrel (Rupert) was so realistic that he received many inquiries as to where he located a trained squirrel.
