Fifteen Hallmark Hall Of Fame Films To Watch

In addition to their more commercial Hallmark Channel principal, the Hallmark brand first began producing films (some sixty plus years ago) under the “Hall of Fame” branding.

In fact, way back on a December’s eve in 1951, their very first film aired, which happened to be an opera.

From films we easily remember to titles that starred Hollywood royalty before they were famous, Hallmark Hall of Fame has given us quality entertainment for many years.

Beyond the Blackboard

Inspired by a true story, Emily VanCamp starred in this poignant story about a first-time teacher who inspires and changes the lives of her students, all of whom are taught out of a homeless shelter.


The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler

Anna Paquin stars in the title role as a social worker who helped the underground effort to smuggle Jews out of Germany.


Follow the Stars Home

One of the sweetest family films I’ve seen to date, this one is about a mother’s choice to have and raise her child who she learns is going to have severe disabilities.


In My Dreams

If you don’t mind a touch of the supernatural (the plot involves coins tossed into a fountain and unexplained dreams) and a film that keeps its leading male and female character apart for the majority, this one is a gem.


The Locket

Though it’s been years since last I watched this, it’s engrained in my memory as a sweet story of love and loss.
