Obscure Christmas movies

Anybody know of any good obscure Christmas movies?
I picked up 3 godfathers today, a movie with the Duke which is supposed to be a movie for Christmas time.

Anybody else know of some good ones?

It Happened on 5th Avenue- available on DVD-made in 1947. I enjoyed it very much.

There are some short subjects that are very good, but obscure. My absolute favorite is the Oscar-winning "Star in the Night," which you can see occasionally on TCM, and is an extra on the DVD of "Christmas in Connecticut." Another short subject that was shown on TBS some years back is "Compliments of the Season."

There's a Roy Rogers western called "Trail of Robin Hood" that deals with a a retired cowboy star (Jack Holt) who owns a Christmas tree farm and sells the trees at cost so the poor can afford them. Then the bad guys start cutting down Holt's trees to sell them at a profit, so Roy and several former cowboy stars get together to stop the "rustlers." It was released on VHS at one point.

There's also "Beyond Tomorrow," a.k.a. "Beyond Christmas," which opens at Christmastime. Quite a good film, but it's in the public domain, so video quality may not be so good, depending on which one you buy or view. Three men each drop a wallet on the sidewalk on Christmas Eve on a bet to see who will be honest enough to return the wallets. A young woman and a young man each return a wallet, and meet. The movie follows their story and the men who brought them together, who take an interest in the couple even after they (the three men) have perished in a plane crash. "The Great Rupert," a.k.a. "A Christmas Wish," has been released on DVD as a Christmas movie. It's about a squirrel in the attic who showers a hidden cache of money on the poor family that moves into his house. The family is in an awkward position when they're unable to explain where their cash flow is coming from.
