A Merry Buffy Christmas. The final scene of 'Amends' presented as a 1940s style (fan-made) Christmas movie.

A 1940s made-for-TV Christmas movie? I don't think movies made for TV started until the 1960s. The song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" did come out in 1944 in the classic musical film "Meet Me In St. Louis." Still, it was fun to watch this video.
Good point. I copied the description as it appeared on the video, but the description is more accurate now here.
Most excellent. Merpy Christmukkah everyone!
This just made me a tad sad somehow..
If you edited out the USA Today newsrack and soft-focussed the automobiles and the sleeping bag, that footage could pass for the 1940s.
Beautiful. (I'm overlooking the sleeping bag.) ;-)
Gorgeousness! This is enough to unfreeze the most frozen of hearts!

This is incredibly beautiful! I'm looking forward to my yearly Christmas tradition of rewatching Amends on the 24th.
I'm not even a fan of Amends, but that was adorable! I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Yeah, I found that very much of interest. Obviously the black&white and fake film scratches help, but it's interesting to see how classic-Hollywood Joss's style can be. Not totally--there are shots here that would feel very out of place in a film from the Golden Age of Hollywood. But especially the stuff on the mountain, including the crane shot moving from B&A to the town, felt very old-school.
