  1. Here's a copy of what I've sent to the TCM Help Desk. I'm hoping for an answer soon. Movies are not loading on my iPhone 6 nor my iPad; each device has the latest iOS. I have tried everything I know to do like checking the wifi, etc. The spinner just keeps spinning and spinning. For what it's worth, I've also tried to watch TCM online with my MacBook Air and iMac.

  2. I agree! The time went by too quickly! Let’s hope that all entities involved offer another movie history class in the near future. This one has been a real treat and so engaging.

The musical numbers are great, but the stand-outs for me are the title song, “Under the Bamboo Tree”, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. Everything works in this film: the story (an idealized turn of the century setting but charming nonetheless), the talent (the headliners and the supporting cast), the musical numbers, the costuming, the sets. To me, it really highlights MGM’s ability to create movie magic.
