Oliver! 

I am going to combine my love of the music in this film with our approaching holidays…and then sprinkle in the fact that, apparently, because I looked just like the lead in the film, the movie made my Aunt Rose cry every time she saw it.  Oliver!, made in 1968, is the tale of a boy who runs away from an orphanage only to take up running with a group of boys trained to be pickpockets by an elderly mentor.  Truly outstanding songs that will have you whistling and humming as you go about your (sometimes) maddening holiday chores.
