Celebrate with Jackie Cooper, Clark Gable, and others in “The Christmas Party” (1931)

How does child actor, Jackie Cooper, host a Christmas party for all his football buddies when his house is too small?

Well, with a handy connection to MGM and some sweet-talkin’ to Norma Shearer, Hollywood stars of the 1930’s come out to help celebrate in “The Christmas Party” (1931)!

You’ll see a young Clark Gable serving chow and chatter to the team.

Handsome Ramon Novarro is hailed on the fly to bring tea and napkins.

Santa visits the children in the form of comedian “The Schnoz” Jimmy Durante.

Lionel Barrymore makes the rounds with warm biscuits for all the “whippersnappers.”

Join MGM’s party to catch even more Hollywood stars celebrating Christmas with Jackie!

Judy Garland and Deanna Durbin sing “Every Sunday.”

“Every Sunday” is a 1936 short subject with Judy Garland and Deanna Durbin (Durbin’s film debut). Per IMDb, “George Sidney, believed to be the line producer, has said that MGM executives instructed him to ”dump the fat one“ (meaning Judy Garland) after viewing this short film. But Judy was signed to MGM and Deanna Durbin was let go, to be snapped up by Universal Pictures.I guess Garland showed them!
