Anne: The magical hazelnuts contain exactly the outfit you need at the moment. Alas, I don't know where they grow... :-P

Ok - outfit by Versace and shoes by Jimmy Choo?

Or outfit by Chanel and shoes by Manolo Blahnik?

Or outfit by Vivienne Westwood and ....whoever makes shoes to go with her designs?

These are my needs right now lol!

Tauriel you are quite right, this film is great to come in the right mood. It's a fix part of our Christmas preparations every year. There are some more films made as Czech-German joint venture in these days, but this is the best of all. Some of the shootings were made near where I live now, so Anne I will have a look for your magic hazelnuts, but can't guarantee to manage it until Chrismas.

Meanwhile you can have a look to a lovely made fanpage:

Oh, I also think the original with Alistair Sim is great! When I was a child, my older brother always watched it, but it terrified the life out of me!!! I always ran from the room and covered my eyes. lol. It seemed so real to me then. Had Mom realized I was so scared, I'm sure she'd have comforted me. She was usually baking when it was on TV and in those days there was only one TV per household. So she didn't realize it frightened me so much.

And I prefer the version of "Miracle on 34th Street" with Natalie Wood. What a delightful little girl and an excellent actress. And later, a delightful woman in real life. Such a tragic end she met.

Holle: Yes, thank you, I actually forgot to mention that many of the Czech fairy tale films are in fact Czech-German (sometimes even Italian) co-production. My bad. And thanks for the link to the site, it's lovely! :-)

"It's a Wonderful Life" is definitely my favourite Christmas film!

Hi Maria, until some years ago some great Karl Zeman films were always around in the Christmas programs, phantastic animated movies of Jules Verne stories, made in the 60th or 70th. But somehow the disappeared from TV and I never managed to get them on video or dvd. Are they still in your TV nowadays? I was in Prague this summer and couldn't find anything of Zeman :-(.

By the way, I was a little bit jealous of your bookstores, most of them offer books in at least six languages. Greetings from your neighbour Holger

Yeah, I like our bookstores, too! ;-)

Miracle on 34th street, It's a Wonderful Life, A Matter of Life and Death, Casablanca.

Almost any film with Katherine Hepburn, Alistair Sim, Cary Grant, Alec Guiness........

Anne,
I had to laugh. Does the show Sex in the City play in the U.K. Are you planning on bankrupting your husband?:-)

Linz, I laughed when you mentioned Katherine Hepburn. I have a friend (also a New Englander like Katherine Hepburn) who told me her ambition was to grow up to be just like her. I
told Donna she succeeded, except Donna's New Bedford accent is too obvious.
