‘Tis the Season! Christmas Pix, Volume 5

This is the first of a couple of films starring Barbara Stanwyck. Remember The Night (1940) is a relatively recent discovery of mine and am I glad I landed upon it. It is a nuts and bolts straightforward set round the holiday. Stanywck is a thief whose trial is being held over until after the holiday recess. The plot contrives that she somehow has to go on a road trip with Fred MacMurray, a city prosecutor. The plot contrivance is alright because it is a lovely way to spend a cold December night.
