This is the best Christmas story -- I can not count how many times I have seen this move. The acting is superb and the scenery is magnificant. I would recommend this Christmas movie for the whole family -- it is a great way to introduce the younger people to understand what old age (future death) is about and that we should respect and welcome the older members of the family.
My family has been looking for this Christmas film, for years. Now that it'savailable, I purchased 4 copies to be presented as gifts this year. Thankyou for helping me in a very timely fashion. Regards, Bruce Ghent.
This is a wonderful Christmas story that I saw on T.V. Possibly fifteen years ago and I have been trying to find a DVD or VHS of it ever since. I was so pleased to find that Amazon now had it. I shall enjoy it many times. I do intend to get "The Gathering #2". thank you Amazon.
I had never seen this movie but it looked interesting online. It is a great movie. Very good actors (Ed Asner and Maureen Stapleton) I am now tempted to buy the sequel but it may not be as good without Asner.
The Gathering, Starring Ed Asner, And Maureen Stapleton was orginally a MADE FOR TV movie. It is the best ever Christmas "Tear Jerk" movie. On Par with It's a Wonderful Life and Better than the original Miracle on 34Th street.
