Holiday Affair (1949)

Just before Christmas, department store clerk Steve Mason meets big spending customer Connie Ennis, really a commercial spy. He unmasks her but lets her go, which gets him fired. They end up on a date, which doesn't sit well with Connie's steady suitor, Carl, but delights her son Timmy, who doesn't want Carl for a step-dad. Standard (if sweet) romantic complications follow.

A Different Christmas MovieReviewed byTapestry6Vote: 9/10

I am not sure why I like this movie so much. It's a very simple boy meets girl movie. The characters are all nice people, even the president of the store is a nice person he just is hard to see sometimes :) The Wendall Corey character is my favorite. He is a realist and even though he cares for Janet Leigh's character, he is realizes that unless he also can connect to "her son" this is just not going to work out. Even her 'inlaws' that visit her at Christmas time don't think he will be the best choice for her.

The movie is delightful and definitely something to watch during the holidays though TMC ran this movie during a Robert Mitchum day in October ;-)

Small-Scale ClassicReviewed bytelegonusVote: 9/10

Holiday Affair isn't the fanciest of Christmas movies, as it was made on a fairly small-scale, but it's extremely pleasant, and doesn't shove the good cheer down your throat, as so many larger films do, and lets its modest story, concerning a young widow, her son, and the two men who court her during the holiday season, happen naturally, and its unforced quality is one of the most winning things about it. Janet Leigh sparkles in the lead, and plays her peppy June Allyson-Jeanne Crain role in a slightly affected yet knowing manner that's very accomplished for so young an actress. Robert Mitchum, as the beatnick guy who romances her, was never at home in comedy. There's a heaviness to his physical presence that makes it impossible to feel lighthearted when he's around, as he suggests at all times a man who has just strolled out of the corner bar. Wendell Corey is far better cast as the lawyer boyfriend Leigh doesn't really care for that much, which she doesn't even realize till Mitchum shows up. The sets are nicely designed, and overall the movie is exceedingly well cast in even the smallest roles. Director Don Hartman had a Frank Capra-ish eye for the right actor for a certain part. The dialogue, while never brilliant in itself, is on the money most of the time. In sum, a feelgood movie that hits the right notes well and often.

Bringing In A Little Christmas CheerReviewed bybkoganbingVote: 7/10

World War II widow Janet Leigh supports herself and her son Gordon Gebbert with a job as a comparison shopper who runs afoul of salesman Robert Mitchum. Mitch is a rather footloose character who's got a temporary job at the Christmas buying season in New York so he can earn enough money to buy a ticket back to California where he wants to spend time building boats and living carefree.

Of course Leigh's interested, but not enough to give up the stability for herself and her son that lawyer Wendell Corey could provide and he's most interested in matrimony. So will she take Mitchum or Corey?

A Holiday Affair is one of those gazillions of films about war widows and their romances that Hollywood made for about 10 years after V-J Day. Janet Leigh is certainly a bright addition to the rolls, in her youth she had a nice innocent charm to her which in fact got her the film.

She was loaned out to RKO and Howard Hughes for a three picture deal and A Holiday Affair was the one Hughes interfered the least with. Her other two films in the package were Two Tickets to Broadway and Jet Pilot. Of course the reason she was at RKO was because Howard Hughes had his hormones in overdrive over her. She had a couple of dates with him and she was less than impressed, but Hughes took a while to get the message she wasn't interested.

She did enjoy working with both Mitchum and Corey. According to Lee Server's book on Mitchum, the set was a relaxed and happy one, but that Mitchum and Corey were full of all kinds of practical jokes. Never a dull moment.

Mitchum had some good chemistry with Leigh and with young Gordon Gebbert. Best scene in the film was at a police station where Mitchum is arrested on Christmas Day and Leigh and Corey go to straighten out a mistake. There's a droll performance by Harry Morgan as the patient police sergeant who's always up for a new story.

A Holiday Affair is a nice unpretentious little film about Christmas in New York and hopefully people will catch it TCM in December.
