Death Standard In Christmas Movies

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Oddly enough, someone always dies in feel-good Christmas flicks.

Just ask producer Beth Grossbard, who’s made holiday films featuring deaths like The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing.

In the latter, she kills off a young Angus T. Jones, who decides to give his liver to his ailing teacher.

She says that was the first time the Two And A Half Men actor had to die onscreen, and he documented his “death” by snapping pictures between takes.

Grossbard actually enjoys incorporating deaths into Christmas movies because it makes them more realistic and true to life.

Plus, there’s nothing like a good death to bring out the hope, faith, and spirit of the holidays.

She also reasons that maybe every time a person dies in a Christmas flick, an angel gets its wings.

Grossbard’s two previous holiday movies, plus her brand new The Christmas Hope, will air back-to-back December 13 on Lifetime.
