Remember the Night 1940 Barbara Stanwyck Fred MacMurray
Stars: Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Beulah Bondi
Remember the Night Story Line. Just before Christmas, Lee Leander is caught shoplifting. It is her third offense. Prosecutor John Sargent postpones the trial because it is hard to get a conviction at Christmas time. At the same time, he feels sorry for her and arranges for her bail. He ends up taking her home to his mother for Christmas. Surrounded by a loving family (in stark contrast to Lee’s own family) they fall in love. This creates a new problem: How do they handle the upcoming trial?
A road trip, comedy, drama, funny and likable supporting characters, and love and tears follow. Also, a wonderful moral to the story. All this without bit of sex, a word of profanity, violence or an explosion. This picture is for all ages. It won’t offend or insult anyone.
Remember the Night is one of a handful of absolutely indispensable Christmas classics: it deserves to be counted right alongside It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol and The Bishop’s Wife. It’s less-known than the others doubtless because it’s less mystical, less whimsical, and most importantly, because it fails to provide the mandatory happy ending. But that’s exactly its greatest value.
Don’t miss it.

Sample Video from Remember the Night
This movie arrives on a professional grade DVD-R disc placed in a slim jewel case. The cover art is exactly as shown in the image.
You may also enjoy All I Desire, also starring Barbara Stanwyck in a drama. The dialogue is very sharp and the premise of the story rather shocking.
For another good Christmas Story, consider Christmas Holiday starring Deanna Durbin.
