The Jimmy Durante Christmas Classic
A Christmas Wish is a heartwarming holiday classic about a family (led by Jimmy Durante) who is down on their luck at Christmas time. Shorty before Christmas, they move into an apartment where Rupert the Squirrel lives in the attic rafters. Just when it seems that the holiday will come and go without so much as a Christmas tree, Rupert acts as the family's guardian angel - not only saving Christmas, but changing their lives forever.
The film is enlivened with the warmth of an unforgettable love story between Terry Moore (Mighty Joe Young) and Tom Drake (Meet Me in St. Louis). Rupert the squirrel (created using George Pal's Academy Award winning animation technique) will charm young and old alike. Jimmy Durante shines when he sings "Jingle Bells" and other well-loved Christmas carols in the evocative voice that made him one of America's recording legends.
