Classic Christmas offerings on streaming services
Could we compile a list of must watch Christmas content is available on each streaming service? I'm a sucker for watching that stuff. My contribution:

White Christmas is on Netflix. Bing is the man, and Danny Kaye's girl is a looker. My 7 yr old daughter enjoyed watching this one because of the great music, but she particularly enjoyed the dance scenes.

You'll be greatly disappointed.

Why you can't find your favorite holiday movies on streaming services

...Of the 25 greatest holiday movies as ranked by American Movie Classics, only five are available for streaming on Amazon.com, Hulu or Netflix this season. "Bad Santa" is an exception, along with a couple of old Bing Crosby vehicles, "Holiday Inn" and "White Christmas." It turns out, Hollywood's best holiday films are simultaneously too old and too good for streaming business models.

..."The 'not available' category this year is an interesting list," said Chris Thun, who tracks listings as vice president of product at Tivo Corp. "The folks who are managing this content most likely believe they can extract more value giving the rights to broadcast."

Indeed, "It's a Wonderful Life" is slated to play on NBC on Christmas Eve this year, right about when TBS kicks off a 24-hour marathon of "A Christmas Story." Walt Disney Co. will show "Elf" 14 times before Christmas on Freeform, a cable channel aimed at young viewers. The channel is giving a similar treatment to Clark Griswold's exploits in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

A streaming cable service like PlayStation Vue gives you access to all of the broadcast networks they mention plus 2 Hallmark Channels that have been running sappy made for TV Christmas movies non stop since the end of October.

Just find the right sale on Amazon and you can by them all for like 5.99 a piece, which is well worth not having to worry about who streams what when. I don't do it for a lot of films, but knowing that I will always watch them at least once at Christmas, it's a bargain.

Ah yes, Vera-Ellen. She's really hot in this classic number w/Gene Kelly:

"Slaughter On Tenth Avenue"

There are several versions of A Christmas Carol on YouTube. Here is a link to the 1951 version w/Alistair Sim, considered by many to be the best:

It kinda has a love/hate reputation, but IMO A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix is worth a view...
