Journeys in Classic Film 2015 Holiday Guide


Classic films fans are both easy difficult to shop for. I know that one of the leading questions I get when the holidays arrives is, “Do you have [insert film here]?” With that I’ve created a gift guide as a launchpad for what to get the classic film fan in your home. These are the definitive “Hot Ticket” items of the year, there’s no Tickle Me Elmo equivalent, just items I’ve reviewed and recommend and/or would want someone to purchase for myself. Feel free to recommend your must-have items in the comments below. Happy holidays everyone!
