Holiday Affair (23-Nov-1949)

Director: Don Hartman

Writer: Isobel Lennart

From story: Christmas Gift by John D. Weaver

Music by: Roy Webb

Producer: Don Hartman

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, Christmas

A young widow supporting herself as a comparison shopper (a spy for another department store) finds herself in romantic crossfire when she inadvertently causes a rival store's clerk to lose his job. Witty and unpretentious Christmas comedy which deserves more airplay. Robert Mitchum is a surprising choice for romantic lead, but here demonstrates his versatility effortlessly.
