Stanwyck is a pretty shoplifter caught stealing a bracelet and MacMurray is the Assistant District Attorney who gets her sent off to jail just before the holidays, then suffers a crisis of conscience and bails her out. When her invites her to join him and his family for Christmas, it begins a relationship that strains but ultimately redeems all parties. Featuring a wonderful supporting cast (Beulah Bondi, Sterling Holloway and Elizabeth Patterson), stylish costumes by Edith Head, a hilarious yet poignant script by Preston Sturges and superb direction by Mitchell Leisen, this is a timeless holiday favorite that can be enjoyed in any season. The film has never looked better than in this first-ever Blu-ray release, digitally remastered and fully restored from high resolution 35mm original film elements.
