Here's for our December Inklings! (Note: if you're interested in participating and new to the blog, you can find our link-up explanation/guidelines + more buttons here. :))
This month's selection is: A Christmastide movie scene
My decision making process this month has been complicated (read 'undecided'), but I finally opted to go with this gorgeous, wintery scene from the classic Lady on a Train with our heroine, Nicki Collins (Deanna Durbin), singing 'Silent Night' long distance to her father in San Francisco.
A murder mystery set in New York at Christmastime, Lady on a Train is quite scary in places and -- with the positively perfect balance of frightfully funny moments and adorable romance -- it's one of my favorite Deanna Durbin films.
|Not to elaborate on the costumes and hairstyles...|
|And I already mentioned the humor, right? I thought I did... :)|
|And the humor plus the drama.|
What think you all? Have you seen Lady on a Train?
