    Ninotchka

    In 1939, MGM released an effervescent, lightly satirical romantic comedy called NINOTCHKA (available on DVD) which ranks well among the enduring delights of American cinema, yet virtually all its makers were heavily accented Europeans: a Swedish superstar, Greta Garbo; a Polish-German director-producer, Ernst Lubitsch; two Viennese scenarists, Billy Wilder and Walter Reisch; a Hungarian story-writer, Melchoir Lengyel; a German composer, Werner Heymann; Prussian, Hungarian and German supporting actors, Felix Bressart, Bela Lugosi, and Sig Ruman.

    5 Movies That Would Be Better if Not Set At Christmas

    We all have favorite Christmas movies that we watch every year. For me, "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas" is the most necessary. And I'll watch bits of "A Christmas Story" and "Scrooged" if they're on TV (and both are on TV a lot this time of year). Th...

    TV Review: A Wonderful, Demented "Doctor Who" Christmas Special
