* Very few prints of CHRISTMAS EVE exist. After an extensive search we found what we believe to be the best surviving elements. We are pleased to make this available here on DVD. The quality is not excellent – and one should not expect state-of-the-art re-mastered quality - but it is a treasure for those who truly wish to see this wonderful and heartwarming holiday film.
