Forgotten Movies: A CHRISTMAS MEMORY
Of course there is a Hallmark Hall version of this, but this was the original one from 1966 and I remember it as fondly as any holiday movie I've ever seen. Capote narrates it himself. It was directed by Frank Perry and Geraldine Page as the boy's cousin is breath-taking. It's simply told and filmed.
It was made for ABC's STAGE 67. Wonderful. You can practically watch it from the clips on you tube but I am not sure where else because NETFLIX won't allow me access (but not let's get into that again.) I know it's early to be talking about Christmas movies but this one is timeless.
