John Savage

The Best Holiday Movie is

'THE DEER HUNTER'

Forget "A Christmas Story," "Miracle on 34th St.," and "It's a Wonderful Life" ... the best holiday movie to snuggle up to with the family on Christmas day is ... "The Deer Hunter!"

At least that's what John Savage says ... he's one of the stars of the film -- you know, the one who loses his frickin' legs in that underwater rat cage in the Viet Kong prison camp.

John was soaking in the sunshine on a warm Christmas Eve in Malibu ... and told us his old flick is the perfect movie to throw on in the background while your kids open up their presents under the tree.

Check out the clip ... we're pretty sure he's being serious.

Just be careful if you bought your little ones the new Russian Roulette playset for Xmas ... you can shoot your eye out with that thing!!!

The movie was one of the best in part, but the homecoming we got from those protesting their drafted classmates was just as bad for the two decades that followed.

Having grown up in Western Pa yes Deer Hunter is the perfect depressing movie to show at Christmas time. In my opinion it is a very very close depiction of living in Western PA. Lots of bad weather, stress, depression, bad economy, no jobs and lots of hardcore drinking it's everything you would want in a family holiday film.

John is a really good actor (would like to see More of him), yet even though he's done great work and in some big flicks, he's the nicest, coolest guy, he's an 'Actor', not Celebrity and he's a CLASS ACT!

Merry Christmas John and the best to you and yours.
