Christmas Movies and the Law
James (Jim) Martin, Andrew Weber and I were talking about Christmas movies several weeks ago. Jim describes himself as a cynic, who “developed a taste for what I call ‘alternative Christmas,’ films such as The Lion in Winter and Desk Set.” Jim defines alternative Christmas films as “films that take place during the holiday period, but which do not directly concern Christmas.” For this post, Jim and I, with contributions from Robert Brammer and suggestions by the Blog Team, have identified some Christmas films that involve legal issues. Some of these fit into Jim’s alternative Christmas category, and some do not. Here are our picks.
