A Christmas Carol:Academy Award Winner George C. Scott gives a powerful performance as Ebenezer Scrooge in this truly heartwarming telling of Charles Dickens' beloved drama. At first, miserable, greedy old Scrooge can't tolerate the revelry of Christmas, much less comprehend its meaning. But visits from his former business partner's ghost and three cautionary specters from past, present and future force the man to soul-search. Grappling with his own losses, Scrooge recognises the repercussions of heartlessness in this classic, timeless story that also stars Susannah... York and David Warner. The Sound of Music:The magical, heart-warming story, which has become the most popular family film of all time, tells the story of a spirited young woman, Maria (Julie Andrews), who leaves the convent to become governess to the seven children of the autocratic Captain von Trapp (Christopher Plummer). Miracle on 34th Street:In this new miracle based on the 1947 classic, a little girl discovers dreams can come true if you really believe. Six-year old Susan Walker has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle - Santa Claus. Her mother told her the secret about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all - something to believe in. This uplifting and joyous film will make believers out of the entire family! Chitty Chity Bang Bang:Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - start your engines.

This CLASSIC CHRISTMAS collection feaures CHRISTMAS CAROL, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, and CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG.
A four-volume set of classic films for Christmas. 'The Sound of Music' (1965) is set in Austria in the 1930s. Ex-nun Maria (Julie Andrews) becomes the governess for a family of seven children who live in the shadow of their domineering and repressed widower father (Christopher Plummer). She brings love, music and excitement into the children's lives and also eventually begins to have an effect on their father. But just when things are looking up, the rise of Nazism and the threat of the coming war darkens all their futures. Includes a host of memorable songs, such as 'Do-Re-Mi', 'Climb Ev'ry Mountain', and 'My Favourite Things'. In the Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol' (1984), miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (George C. Scott) is a misanthrope unimpressed by the fuss everyone makes during the festive season. That is, until his sleep is disturbed one Christmas Eve by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, each of which takes him on a journey which helps him to open his heart to his fellow man and to thereby learn the joy of Christmas. In 'Miracle On 34th Street' (1947), Doris Walker (Maureen O'Hara), an executive at Macy's department store, believes in taking a common-sense approach to life and is consequently raising her daughter Susan (Natalie Wood) not to believe in Santa Claus. This year however, the convictions of both mother and child are challenged when the kindly old man (Edmund Gwenn) hired as the store Santa insists that he is in fact the real thing. No one believes him, some even think he's insane, but he is willing to go to court to prove his case. Finally, in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' (1968), inventor Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke) acquires a run-down racing car and renovates it for his children, Jeremy (Adrian Hall) and Jemima (Heather Ripley), making a few extra improvements along the way. The car, christened Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, now has the ability to fly, and takes the Potts and their friend, Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) on an exciting adventure. Arriving in the kingdom of wicked Baron Bomburst (Gert Frobe), they find themselves pursued by the evil Child Catcher (Robert Helpmann), while the Baron, desperate to get his hands on the car, kidnaps Jeremy and Jemima's grandfather (Lionel Jeffries) by mistake.
