My Reputation (1946) stars Barbara Stanwyck as Jessica Drummond, a widow with two young sons who falls in love with an army officer (George Brent). This romance comes too soon, according to her domineering mother (Lucile Watson) and Jessica’s upper-class Chicago friends. Fortunately for Jessica she has a supportive best friend in Ginna Abbot (Eve Arden) who helps her navigate this new chapter in her life. With major action set during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, My Reputation is a worthy choice as this year's holiday movie.
