It Happened On 5th Avenue
Available on Tubi TV, Plex
Each Christmas, an industrial tycoon and his family travel from New York City to Florida to spend the holiday season in the sun, and while they are gone, a philosophical homeless man takes up residence in the millionaire's Fifth Avenue mansion. Letting himself in through a hole in the fence, he puts on designer clothes, smokes expensive cigars, eats gourmet food, and opens up the townhouse to his homeless friends so that they, too, can share in the holiday spirit. When the real homeowner's daughter returns to NYC early and discovers the house has been taken over, the homeless haven is in danger of disappearing forever. However, the warmhearted nature of the homeless intruders reinvigorates the unhappy wealthy family, and everyone succumbs to the true spirit of Christmas. Starring Victor Moore ("Swing Time," "The Seven Year Itch"), Academy Award-nominee Ann Harding ("Holiday," "When Ladies Meet") and Emmy Award-nominee Charles Ruggles ("Bringing Up Baby," "The Parent Trap").
