CFDb Review:

What a delightful film where you feel great afterwards and want to do random acts of kindness!  Very unique beginning and LOVED the teacher’s idea which sparked the random acts of kindness.  Wish this was done more often.  Highly recommend this one!

Christmas for a Dollar


Film Description:

America is in the midst of the Depression, and the Kamp family is struggling to get by, especially after Mrs. Kamp’s untimely death. Now little Ruthie, with her mother gone and her father overwhelmed by doctor bills resulting from her brother s polio, expects another Christmas without presents or festivities. But when her father brings home one dollar in change and lets the children use it to buy special gifts for each other, the Kamps come to find that money isn’t what fills Christmas with joy, love, and miracles.

It’s the Great Depression, and the Kamp family has struggled since Mrs. Kamps untimely death. The older children do their best to take care of the family, but the younger children, Hopalong Cassidy fan Norman, and straight talking little Ruthie struggle most with a bleak looking future. Now, with their father facing mounting debts resulting from Norman’s battle with polio, the siblings expect a Christmas without presents. But when father scrapes together a dollar to use for gifts, things change. As each child comes up with a special gift to give another member of the family, they soon begin to see many of their dearest wishes come true. Perhaps a boy who struggles to walk can become a real cowboy after all.

Release Date: (DVD) September 29. 2014

    Such a wonderful movie: actors, writers, directors, everyone involved can feel they have done something good for many. You should all have many marbles in the “box”. And I personally feel all should get their own box. Merry Christmas and God bless all involved in such a beautifully told story. Oh, if now in our time of so much we could still have the heart of those in this true story.
