Happy Holidays! To celebrate the season TCM is airing a a batch of Christmas films tonight including The Bishop’s Wife (1947) starring Cary Grant as a mischievous and debonair angel who brings some holiday cheer to a Bishop (David Niven) and his frustrated wife (Loretta Young).
To commemorate the occasion I thought I’d share an article I came across in a 1934 movie magazine titled “Cary’s Christmas Dinner” where the actor and his wife at the time (actress Virginia Cherrill) share their Christmas dinner menu as well as some of Cherrill’s personal recipes. It might inspire a few of you to make some changes or additions to your own Christmas dinner menu.
