Christmas in Connecticut (1945)

Barbara Stanwyck stars as Elizabeth in this delightful romantic comedy as the “Diary of a Housewife” columnist who has lied about being the perfect housewife.   Her articles about her fictitious Connecticut farm, husband, and baby are admired by housewives across the country.  She must try to cover her deception when her boss and a returning war hero invite themselves to her home for a traditional family Christmas.
