[The actors are] a treat to watch even just sitting around a railroad passenger car singing “Snow,” bound for Pine Tree, Vermont, where the inn turns out to be run by ex-General Waverly (Dean Jagger). When people gather for a screening of this movie, I doubt they worry that it may not rank with Michael Curtiz’s best work. They come to mark the change of years together. If there’s a season for nestling in the warmth of nostalgia, it’s this one.
