    This is for those who're looking for legal copies of classic Christmas movies or for those who just happen to like old classic movies even with a Christmas flare. The movies are found on the Internet Archive. If you decide to choose one of these movies then click the link and when you arrive to the page, look to your right for "show all," click it, and then choose the largest MP4 file to download because it is a more universally accepted container and will play using most any software video player. To download you will need to right click on the file link and then choose "save link as." For easy location and retrieval save it to your desktop. Be sure to leave your browser open until your download is completed or you will have to start again. You can choose to stream but the picture playback will probably be better with a download. All the links are in my post!

    Movie 1. A Christmas Carol 1938. For its age the copy is rather good and this is considered by a few to be one of the best versions.

    Movie 2. Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn 1942, the superior precursor to White Christmas

    Movie 3. Miracle On 34th Street ( 1947)

    Movie 4. It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

    https://archive.org/details/wonderful_life_260x300

    Movie 5. A Christmas Carol Scrooge (1951) This is the version I grew up watching. The picture quality is as good as it gets for black white.

    Then enjoy them, because they're records of your time, and consider yourself fortunate to have them close to you.
    Some people just don't appreciate the value of some of the old flicks! Merry Christmas!
