A Dog for Christmas stars two great actors, Dean Cain (Superman, The Three Gifts, A Mile in His Shoes, The Case for Christmas, etc...) and Richard Karn (best known as Al, from the sitcom, Home Improvement). Visit the A Dog for Christmas page to see which one portrays Santa!

Saving Santa will be a nice family friendly film - being made for the theater. The story will  take place in a ranch country setting and will star a few Country Singers, too! Click here to see who!

Saving Santa, the animated movie, is being made in the UK and many well known British actors have been cast to read the voice-overs.
For more details on each movie - please click on their titles above.

It's fun to get a look at what is coming. Hope you enjoyed this sneak - peek!

Happy 95th Birthday Ernest Borgnine!

Today, January 24, 2012 -  is Mr. Ernest Borgnine's 95th Birthday and we wanted to applaud him, by wishing him a very Happy Birthday!!!

Ernest Borgnine was Born January 24, 1917 in Hamden, Connecticut to Charles and Anna Borgnine.

He served in the United States Navy for 10 years, from 1935- 1945.

Following that, his mother sugggested he take up acting, so, he took a course at the Randall School of Drama in Hartford, Connecticut. From there, he did theater, until he got a break on Broadway in 1949, in the production, "Harvey". He moved to L.A. in 1951 to further pursue his career. Borgnine was cast in many drama and western films.

My favorite early role of Mr. Borgnine's is in the film, Marty. I must not be alone, since he won that year, 1955, the Academy Award for Best Actor.
From there, he went on to act in many films for the big screen, and  TV series, McHale's Navy (earning a Emmy Nomination), Airwolf, The Single Guy, and the last episode of the long-standing drama, ER (receiving another Emmy Nomination).

He is so amazing - having been in over 100 films! Many of the Ernest Borgnine Movies are available on DVD.

My most recent favorite film of his, is "A Grandpa for Christmas" - a Hallmark Channel Original TV Movie. He is gruff, at first... yet sweet, as the grandpa who takes his grand-daughter in, when his only daughter is involved in a car accident.


Mr. Borgnine is also wonderful in the Hallmark Channel Western Movie, Love's Christmas Journey. He is captivating in his role as Nick, a mysterious man who saves another man's life.

In his personal life, Ernest Borgnine is married to Tova Borgnine and has 4 children (with his first and fourth wife).

Mr. Borgnine is currently working on a new Western Drama film, titled: "The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez". 
Details for movie:
In "The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez"....
Ernest Borgnine plays Rex Page, an old man who is bitter about never becoming famous and having lived a life without any meaning. After suffering a stroke, he ends up in a nursing home staffed by Latin American immigrants. Put off by the situation, Rex focuses his energy on getting out, which places him at odds with the Latino workers. However, their relationship takes on new meaning when it is discovered that he once shook hands with Vicente Fernandez, a Mexican singer, producer and actor idolized throughout Latin culture. The employees soon begin to treat Rex like the celebrity he's always dreamed of being. (Written by an Anonymous writer at IMDB.com)

It's so good to know Mr. Borgnine is doing well, busy working, and acting - doing what he loves!

Happy 95th Birthday,
Ernest Borgnine!

God Bless You, today and always!

"Hats off to You!"

*Be sure to check out all of the
 Ernest Borgnine Movies on DVD.

Hallmark Channel News for 2012

The Hallmark Channel and the Hallmark Movie Channel have released their New Movie Lineup for 2012 ~ from January thru August. You can see the list in the New Movies Section or view them in the updated Family TV Schedule 2012. Upcoming Movies will star Joely Fisher, Genie Francis, Ted McGinley, Brooke Burns, Dean Cain, Candace Cameron Bure, etc...

After seeing the list - I think I'm most excited about the third sequel to "The Notes" movies. Notes from the Heart Healer follows The Note and The Note 2 - Taking a Chance on Love.

Also, in other Hallmark News... if you haven't already heard the latest buzz - the Martha Stewart Show will be eventually let go from the Hallmark Channel Morning line-up. I have heard they will stop taping new shows sometime in the spring and then, they may play the re-runs throughout the summer. After that - who knows? We will have to wait and see what they plan to do. I'm hoping this means this year we will have that time block at Christmastime for the airing of more Hallmark Christmas Movies!

And, one more thing... the Hallmark Channel will be changing the night they premiere their new movies. Starting in April, Hallmark Channel Movies will move to Sunday Nights. Hmmm? What do you think? Do you like this change? I think I liked them best on Saturday nights, but I'll watch or tape them whenever!

Let me know - what you think...
