Why buy a DVD when it’s on tv a hundred times during the holidays.
Not here in NY.
For decades, it was the custom here in NY to broadcast the original version of "Miracle on 34th Street" on Thanksgiving day. Not anymore. The same is true for "It's a Wonderful Life". The only way to see this film is by purchasing it on DVD. "Home Alone" and "Home Alone2" are broadcast throughout the year and now we can look forward to 24 hours of "A Christmas Story" beginning on Christmas Eve. As for the other classics, they have simply vaporized in our part of the country.
You're behind the times. NBC bought the right & now it is shown only once a year!!
