When the Herdmans (the nastiest kids in the neighborhood) decide they want to be in this year's Christmas pageant, everyone is sure it will be a disaster. But when the curtain finally goes up, a miracle happens---making it the best ever! Loretta Swit stars in this wonderful adaptation of the classic book. Your family will treasure this delightful video classic forever! Approx. 60 minutes.
We saw this movie on TV in the 80's and my kids loved it!!! They are now in there 30's and it is a tradition. This movie is hard to find and we were delighted to find it on your site! We even talk about the "Herdmans" though out the year!!! I highly recommend this movie and my grandkids now love to watch it. We have watched it two years with them and they so enjoy it as well. I always cry at the end. . . it is so endearing when Gladys Herdman runs through the public square and shouts "Unto you a child a born!" While the quality is from the 80's don't let that stop you from purchasing and watching this delightful story of the meaning of Christmas! I am going to purchase another one because I know the grands will want a copy when they get older and we live far away.
The movie version of "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" did not do justice to the book. It was only 60 minutes in length. The story of the Herdman's and the transformation of their family as they practiced for the Christmas pageant could have filled another hour, felt more complete, and been more enjoyable.
