Movie Info

Hume Cronyn steals what there is to steal of Christmas on Division Street. Cronyn plays a smooth-talking skid row derelict who befriends wealthy Philadelphia "mainline" kid Fred Savage. Both the old bum and the young preppie have lost faith in themselves and the world. Both are redeemed by the spirit of Christmas and by the bonds of friendship. Made for TV, Christmas on Division Street is saved from being a heaping bowl of Yuletide mush by the ever-iconoclastic Cronyn.

Audience Reviews for Christmas on Division Street

Our "Wonder Years" boy Fred Savage, and grandfatherly Hume Cronyn in a very nice little made-for-tv type movie. Really sweet, touching, and actually had me choked up more than once.....

Touching, heartwarming tale about a preppy teen who befriends a homeless man. A film worth watching that gives you a lot to think about. Hume Cronyn is wonderful.
