Watch 6-1/2 minutes of home movies of the Edwards family opening Christmas presents. Their address is on Sherman Avenue but the city is not given. The southern California cities of Garden Grove, Monrovia, Moreno Valley and Corona each have a street by that name so perhaps one of them was the locale.
Music added to the movies include Merry Christmas Polka, Guy Lombardo and the Andrews Sisters; The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot, Vera Lynn; and (Angie) The Christmas Tree Angel, Andrews Sisters with Vic Shoen Orchestra. Some of the performances of the music may be different from 1939 (despite the captions) but they evoke the era.
