Peace on Earth and Good Will to Men
I saw this referenced in Nate Powell's Any Empire. Peace on Earth is an MGM Oscar nominated short from 1939. It was remade as Good Will to Men in 1995 which was also nominated for an Oscar. Both are on YouTube and are below. The first was made on the eve of World War II and is very much in a World War I mindset. The remake has a cold war anti-nuclear message. And both are Christmas films.
