Summary, etc.:
A Christmas Wish is a heartwarming holiday classic about a family (led by Jimmy Durante) that is down on its luck at Christmastime. Shortly before Christmas, they move into an apartment where Rupert the Squirrel lives in the attic rafters. Just when it seems that the holiday will come and go without so much as a tree, Rupert acts as the family's guardian angel - not only saving Christmas, but changing their lives forever. The film is enlivened with the warmth of an unforgettable love story between Terry Moore (Mighty Joe Young) and Tom Drake (Meet Me in St. Louis). Rupert the Squirrely (created using George Pal's Academy Award-winning animation technique) will charm young and old alike, and Jimmy Durante shines when he sings Jingle Bells and other classic carols in the evocative voice that made him a recording legend!
