It's a Wonderful Book
Despite the too-easy title of my review, don't make the mistake of thinking that this terrific compendium of Christmas cinema touches only on familiar festive flicks. "Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas" is the perfect listing of holiday movies, making sure to include beloved classics like Wonderful Life, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, and the myriad versions of A Christmas Carol, but also branching out into such different holiday-film categories as heist and horror. Independent L.A. film critic Alonso Duralde brings an encyclopedic knowledge of film to his task, but never condescends or comes across as anything less delightful than a true lover of movies, and Christmas movies in particular. Leonard Maltin just included it on a list of essential movie reference books, and having read through it twice, dog-earing all the way, I have to agree. If you can't wait for December to bring you Hollywood's holiday goodies every year, "Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas" will whet your appetite for merry movies all the year through.
