HOLIDAY AFFAIR (1949)
World War II widow Janet Leigh works as a department store comparison shopper during the Christmas season in New York City. After buying and returning the most expensive train set from the competition's store, she gets good-hearted sales clerk Robert Mitchum fired for letting her off easy. Mitchum uses his resulting free time to pal around with Leigh, and romance blooms. However, Leigh's longtime admirer Wendell Corey has just proposed to her. And then there's her young son Timmy — who really wanted that train! Mitchum and Leigh, both just starting their careers, truly shine in this holiday charmer, recently re-discovered for the gem that it is. DIR/PROD Don Hartman; SCR Isobel Lennart, from the story "Christmas Gift" by John D. Weaver. U.S., 1949, b&w, 87 min. NOT RATED
