We come to learn that the French woman once was a famous chef. She has hidden her talents, subjecting herself as a housekeeper for the two sisters.
When the money arrives, she shares her good fortune in a most lavish manner. She asks the sisters if she can provide a special meal for an upcoming church celebration. When the food arrives from far-off regions, consisting of epicurean delights such as live ingredients for turtle soup and other gastronomical surprises these simple people are unfamiliar with, the sisters are at first horrified.
Ah, but the gourmet meal serves to reunite this quarreling congregation. This same spiritual truth remains intact in this musical adaptation starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway who won a well-deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" Matthew The greatest gift we can receive this Christmas day was given by God some years ago with the birth of Jesus.

The length min. Will Ferrell plays a Santa little helper with abandon and glee. A complete innocent, he approaches everyone with an infectious child-like wonder. There is simply no guile in him.
In this film about an angel aiding a struggling minister, I marveled at the ending sermon by the bishop, played by David Niven, starring alongside Cary Grant and Loretta Young. Standing behind his pulpit, the reverend reminds his parishioners to focus attention on Christ.
The stocking for the child born in a manger. Let us each ask what He would wish for most. And then, let each put in his share. Alastair Sim stars in perhaps the best of the Scrooge movies.
