Christmas in Connecticut
A cozy bit of holiday fluff directed by Peter Godfrey and starring the usually uncompromising Barbara Stanwyck as Elizabeth Lane, a Manhattan food critic who masquerades as a Connecticut farm wife complete with fictitious family. The charade ends in ruins but happy-go-lucky Dennis Morgan is there to soften the blow. Sydney Greenstreet plays her unsuspecting publisher.
