He’ll play Howard Stark's butler in TV show

Hoyte van Hoytema to look after cinematography
Martin Scorsese presents... the festive season in the shadow of the largest cash robbery America had ever seen: not as merry as intended.
A swirl of paranoid recrimination chills Henry Hill's mob crew with Bobby De Niro's grouchy Jimmy Conway not embracing the spirit of genorosity at their extravagant present-buying.
Henry, meanwhile, gives his Christmas over to exotic '70s extravagance - jazzy jewellery, wads of cash, and a monstrous white plastic tree.
Scorsese's slow close-up on a bauble offers a crisp and even message: "All this phoney glamour is about to come crashing down..."

I'm lost as to why there are no National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation parts in there?

Can't believe you put in Michael Caine 'singing' as a best bit! This scene is so awful it is actually cut from my DVD version - Thank God!

Personaly I'd have had more Nightmare before Christmas parts. But good to see the guilty pleasure of Jingle All the Way making it. I would like to see more action/sci-fi films ased around christma not just Die Hard 1 & 2. How about a Christmas film where an Father Christmas is being stalked by a mysterious force as he delivers his presents that metaphores for the soul less and comercial farce christmas has become!!!????

Just one little point about The Snowman, Peter Auty sang the version you hear in the original animation, including this clip. Aled Jones just did a cover version released as a single at a later date.
