You may not have thought that thieves and murderers, or disasters at sea were appropriate subjects for Christmas movies, but there’s a long tradition of ghost stories for Christmas. The next movie is not a ghost story, but it follows on with thieves and murderers: The Thin Man.
Of Course the second movie in the Thin Man series took place on New Years. After The Thin Man also has an actor that people relate to another Christmas movie: James Stewart star of It’s a Wonderful Life.
And just think it only took them one week and two years to take that train across the country.
