Mark's Yuletide Movie Vault (Mark Steyn, 23 Dec 2012)
THE BEST NATIVITY SCENERenoir's Grand Illusion (1937) is difficult to beat. Two French PoWs have escaped from their camp and found sanctuary on the farm of a German widow. On Christmas Eve they surprise her by building a manger from wood and cardboard and sculpting Jesus, Mary and Joseph from potatoes. One of the escapees is a gruff Jew. 'Baby Jesus, my blood brother, ' he observes.
...there is no bad time of year for a conservative to watch Grand Illusion again.Posted by Orrin Judd at December 25, 2012 9:16 AM
