Item Description...
Mr. Christmas is a one-hour drama that was filmed in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a 19th century Victorian village in the Ozark Mountains with its entire downtown area listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The town provided ideal exterior locations for the 1941 period depicted in the movie. Special scenes were written to take advantage of the Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railway, the Bank of Eureka Springs with a restored early-20th century look, and a 1920s printing press found against a back wall at a local printing company.

All period set dressings, props, classic cars and wardrobe for the 87 background actors were donated by local antique stores, museums and individual citizens.

The two adult lead actors, Jace McLean and Jen Celene Little, were professional actors from New York.

The two little girls, Ireland Rose Maddox, 5, and Abigail Kinslow, 6, were from Eureka Springs and nearby Bella Vista. Neither had ever acted. All other cast members were from Arkansas.

Six department heads were from Los Angeles. All other crew members were from Arkansas.

Mr Christmas  Jan 26, 2007
I haven't seen this. I bought for my mom. She wanted it because it was made in Eureka Springs, AR. She said that it was short and sweet. Not awful, but not great!!
Nice story, painful acting  Jan 25, 2007
This story, with its nostalgia-evoking setting and charming premise, could make a holiday staple, but the level of acting will not allow that. To be sure, there is a valid point in the assertion of the "A for Effort" reviewer, but on the other hand, no amount of allowance for production constraints can gloss over the reality that the actors cannot convince the viewer of anything more than the fact that they are reciting their lines.

It's a nice story and the costumes and sets are commendable, but it can't sincerely deliver its message when the acting leaves the characters devoid of authenticity.
A FOR EFFORT  Jan 20, 2007
I was disappointed in the several reviewers here and at the IMDb site who criticized this cute little movie for being what it is. Talk about Grinches. The movie is only 56 minutes long, clearly a local production made in a small town in the Ozark foothills of Arkansas. To criticize it for lacking the production values of "Miracle on 34th Street" is like comparing your child's dance recital with the Kirov Ballet.

I loved the two little girls who reminded me of my own grand-daughters. They appear only about 4 and 5, an age where they have the attention span of butterflies. They are clearly more little girls than actresses. There is a wonderful blooper sequence that shows the director's difficulties in trying to keep them focused. Very funny.

The elder, Ireland Rose Maddox dearly wants a bike for Christmas. But it is Christmas 1941, just after the attack on Pearl Harbor. And dad's job at a local print shop is too low paying to allow buying a new bike costing over $24. This simple problem forms the plot.

My only real criticism is that the Production Notes on the DVD are unreadable. Too bad. I would have liked to know the background for the story and why and how it was made.

Nonetheless, this is a cute little movie, well worth the price.
Great movie from the 40's  Jan 9, 2007
A great movie for those who would like to see items from the 40's to remind us of when we were growing up. A wholesome movie for all to see.
Really not good  Dec 30, 2006
This movie was all costumes (which were marvelous), and no well-developed plot or convincing acting. I love Christmas movies of all kinds, and was expecting to have my heart warmed at least somewhat, but everything except the costumes was terrible...bad acting, stilted dialogue, inadequate direction, and poor editing. I watched it in slack-jawed seems that something could have been made of it, but every line of dialogue, facial expression, "plot twist", and lingering shot was misdirected. I was very ready to enjoy this, but was completely unable to.
