Holes in the Holidays

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Barbara Stanwyck uses every acting muscle in her body to redeem this silly holiday romance in which characters run themselves ragged to keep up a ridiculous deception. Character actors S.Z. Sakall, Sydney Greenstreet and Una O'Connor also add a bit of spice. The DVD comes with a fairly predictable, but deftly handled and quite lovely Christmas two-reeler, Star in the Night directed by a then-unknown Don Siegel.
