A Christmas Without Snow (1980)

Michael Learned, John Houseman
John Korty
A recently divorced woman (Michael Learned of The Waltons) joins a church choir in time to learn Handel's Messiah for the holidays. The music is daunting, and the choir director is a taskmaster, but the experience helps her cope with her failed marriage and her new life in San Francisco. Oscar winner John Houseman (The Paper Chase), Valerie Curtin (Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore) and James Cromwell (Babe, The Green Mile) also star in this made for television drama from director John Korty (The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman). It's a holiday tale you won't soon forget! (Color)
