Audience Reviews for A Christmas Wish (The Great Rupert)

Charming is exactly the word for this movie, and cute too. A cute, nice little story about two families one richer and one poorer. It's a really good movie, and I liked it.

Number 5 The 1950 Film a Christmas Wish aka The Great Rupert. Thought the copy I watched seemed more like a 1930 film because of condition, its still a movie worth watching this time of the year with the
great Jimmy Durant in it. About a trained squireel and a family on the down and out, film shows many scenes of olden days which was cool, story line is excellent. As 100 dollar bills come down from heaven into this familys apartment, thanks to the help of the Great Rupert. 3 1/2 stars

I liked this a lot! It was clever and the characters are very likeable. It's something I will probably start watching every year!
