QUIZ: Can You Name The Christmas Film From Just One Still?

Get those specs on. We’re putting you to the test.

(If you’ve got it in the bag, we recommend making things a little more interesting and sharing this with a pal who loves Christmas movies to see who does better. Nothing like a little healthy competition to improve performance… Tis the season.)
