Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States of America, my home. In recognition of this holiday, PEPS will not publish a Breening Thursday article this week. We are just going to spend the time enjoying our family and our traditions. We’ll be back next week with another Breening Thursday article on November 29. We’ve got a lot of exciting ideas for movies to breen during the holiday season!
We are going to celebrate the eve of Thanksgiving by watching Holiday Inn from 1942. Why not join us in celebrating with the Code film which is perfect for every holiday? You can’t go wrong with this cheerful musical about a crooner who decides to escape the grind of show business by opening his own inn in the country. With a cast led by Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, songs by Irving Berlin, and the decency of the Code, this film is always a great choice for holiday viewing!
Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season. It also a time for thankfulness. I am thankful for the Breen Era (1934-1954), a time when movies were made decently, conscientiously, and acceptably for everyone. No matter what happens in our world and in modern Hollywood, that era remains a glorious body of movies which we can always enjoy. One could watch nothing but movies from those twenty years and never run out of new movies to watch, since over 17,000 films were issued seals during this time!
During the weeks leading up to Christmas, I know we’ll all enjoy watching our favorite Christmas classics. Just like timeless Christmas carols, most of these holiday films are old. This nostalgic time makes us long for traditions and wholesome decency. Where better to find these qualities than in Code films? If you want suggestions for Code Christmas films to watch, I reviewed almost all my favorites last year during The Twelve Days of Christmas with the Code. I won’t be repeating that event this year, since I exhausted most of my Christmas favorites. However, please read them and enjoy watching the films!
