TCM films experts dish on holiday classics

Whether it’s angels getting their wings in It’s A Wonderful Life or Ralphie shooting his eye out in A Christmas Story, it’s just not the holidays without watching certain scenes from classic movies. And nobody is better qualified to talk about must-see holiday films than the hosts of Atlanta-based Turner Classic Movies.

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken recently stopped by the TCM studios for a rare opportunity to talk with the channel’s four hosts — Ben Mankiewicz, Dave Karger, Alicia Malone, and Eddie Muller. The quartet was together in the Atlanta studio taping TCM’s New Year’s Eve lineup, which includes a primetime marathon of the That’s Entertainment! films. But during a break in filming, Paul got a chance to snag a few minutes with the hosts, getting their thoughts on some of Hollywood’s most memorable holiday offerings!

Click the video link above to hear which holiday film is Dave’s favorite, learn about Eddie’s film noir recommendations, find out which movie never fails to make Alicia cry, and – perhaps most importantly – hear Ben defend Die Hard as a bona-fide Christmas movie!
