Classic Film: "Christmas in Connecticut," part of the Headed to the Movies! film series
(1945, 102 minutes, black and white) Directed by Peter Godfrey. Journalist Elizabeth Lane (Barbara Stanwyck) is one of the country's most famous magazine writers. In her columns, she describes her life as a hard-working farm wife, taking care of her young baby and being an excellent cook. In reality, however, she is an unmarried New Yorker who can barely toast bread. The publisher of the magazine (Sydney Greenstreet) has decided that a returning war hero (Dennis Morgan) should spend Christmas with her family on her Connecticut farm. If she can't pull this off, her career is over, but it will be the ruse of a lifetime.
