O. Henry&#x27;s &#x22;The Gift of the Magi&#x22; is one of the two best-known secularChristmas stories -- the other is, of course, Dickens&#x27; &#x22;A ChristmasCarol&#x22;. It is also much harder to translate to a screen feature, sinceO. Henry specialized in short stories with &#x27;snapper&#x27; endings -- usuallysardonic jokes on their protagonists.<br><br>This TV movie makes a fair try at filling up the spaces by updating thestory -- modern urban women no longer sell their hair to wig makers,and certainly not to buy fobs for their husbands&#x27; pocket watches, sincemen mostly don&#x27;t use pocket watches these days.<br><br>But the poor we always have with us, so this story is about a husbandwho wants to buy a good lens for his wife&#x27;s beloved heirloom camerawhile she wants to buy an original steering wheel for the vintage carhe is restoring -- these stand in for the original gifts. And theleads, Marla Sokoloff and Mark Webber, are handsome and loving.<br><br>But the story telling soon gets lost in a maze of secondary characterswho are used to fill up the time, and while Ms. Sokoloff continues asearnest throughout, Webber turns into an inconsiderate boor by the timethe story is heading towards the lap.<br><br>Over all, it&#x27;s a good effort, and the casting and direction are good,but the script needs a bit of work and focus, making this simplywatchable. A pity.

After &#x22;A Christmas Carol&#x22; and countless rip-offs of &#x22;It&#x27;s a WonderfulLife&#x22; the O Henry book &#x22;The Gift of The Magi&#x22; is probably one of themost adapted works done at Christmas time. I can understand why. It&#x27;shard to go wrong adapting the beloved story. This film could have beena bad but, the film is truly faithful in the spirit of the originalstory. That is what makes this film work. <br><br>The Original tale of the &#x22;Gift of the Magi&#x22; took place in the 19thcentury. In this film the story is updated to the 21st Century. In thisfilm a newly wed couple is having their first Christmas together. Heloves working on classic car and she is a amateur photographer.<br><br>The leads in this are enjoyable and so is the supporting cast. What isnice about the O Henry Story is that &#x22;The Best Gifts are one the onesyou give of yourself and making personal sacrifices for the person youlove&#x22;<br><br>This film is well worth watching.
