    Lord of the Rings; especially when the Fellowship is dumped on with snow because of the evil spell of Saruman while they're trying to cross the Pass of Carhadras, or however it's spelled...

    Doctor Zhivago (1965) with Omar Sharif and Julie Christie
    The winter scenes in this classic are breathtaking and unforgettable.  They help portraying the images of war and love - and conveying the feelings of despair and hope - so perfectly.  I used to watch this film with a group of friends on every New Year's as a tradition.

      punacoast, good movie. And one of the best film themes ever, too.

    Sun Valley Serenade. 1941 Daryl Zanuck producer- 20th Century Fox- starring John Payne(the guy in Miracle on 34th Street) and Sonja Henie(world champion ice skater) also has the Glenn Miller Band Playing Chattanooga Choo Choo with Dorthy Danridge and the Nicholas bros dancing. All set in the winter wonderland of Sun Valley Idaho.

      It's old as the hills but still an excellent make ya feel good flick. The scene with the Glenn Miller Orchestra playing Chattanooga-choo choo and Dorthy Danridge and the Nicholas bros dancing and singing is an eternal show-stopper. U-tube clips:)

    One of my favorite films with the winter backdrop is the 2005 film titled 'The Holiday' starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black. This romantic-comedy film's most of the scenes had a beautiful Christmasy winter-backdrop.

    I like Queen Latifah's 'The Last Holiday' and also a James Bond movie, probably 'Tomorrow Never Dies' where there was a whole mansion made of ice with a magnificent staircase and ice sculptures. I might be wrong about the name of the movie, it was a Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.

      I remember the huge ice staircase (though like you I'm not sure which Bond film). Thanks for the memory; that was awesome.
