I haven't tested the links since last year and like a box of ornaments sitting in the attic, they got pretty dusty. I'm updating them now.

I like cutting it off at 1959, although some of those 60s films/broadcast have a great glow these days.

PROSPERITY (1932) and BARBED WIRE (1927) both have Christmas content, as does SHOCK TROOP 1917 (1934).
