> Digital Spy's Top 25 Christmas movies: 25-21

20. Bad Santa
Billy Bob Thornton led this pitch-black comedy about an alcoholic Santa impersonator who does some very bad things. Quality oozes through this daring Christmas film, from director Terry Zwigoff to producers Joel and Ethan Coen and supporting stars Tony Cox and Lauren Graham.



19. Scrooge (1970)
The first of several entries in our list for Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, 1970's Scrooge had Albert Finney on top form as Ebenezer Scrooge, while Alec Guinness popped up as the ghost of Jacob Marley.



18. Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
A heartwarming classic for all the family, Miracle on 34th Street takes place in New York after Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as people begin to question whether on not the mall Santa is the real deal. Maureen O'Hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood and Edmund Gwenn are among the cast for this triple Oscar winner.



17. White Christmas
Bing Crosby's second appearance in Digital Spy users' top 25, this 1954 musical sees Bing and Danny Kaye fall for sisters Rosemary Clooney (yep, George's aunt!) and Vera Ellen. 'White Christmas' naturally gets a reprise on the soundtrack.



16. A Christmas Carol (1951)
Another dash of Dickens as Alistair Sim plays the miserable old man who has a change of heart over the holiday period. Also known as Scrooge, this is a stellar version of a Christmas classic.
