Hallmark Hall of Fame


They're more than movies

Hallmark Hall of Fame films entertain, enlighten and inspire in a way that the whole family
can enjoy, and they've been doing just that for more than 60 years. In fact, the films
are even better shared with the ones you love, whether you're cuddled up together
on the couch or giving one as a birthday gift.

In My Dreams

Starring Katharine McPhee, Mike Vogel and JoBeth Williams

Premiering Sunday, April 20, 9/8c on ABC


Natalie and Nick are both deep-down lonely. Nick’s mom is constantly trying to fix him up with candidate girlfriends. Natalie’s best friend is forever offering dating advice. But neither Natalie nor Nick has found the right mate. Then they both happen to be at the Haywood Fountain on the same day at the same time. 


Tradition has it that if you throw a coin in the age-old fountain you’ll dream about your true love for seven nights. Natalie and Nick each throw coins in the fountain, and magic happens! They start to dream about each other.


But the clock’s ticking. They have seven nights—and only seven nights—to turn dreams into reality. Can they make the magic come alive?

Can Molly imagine a future with a man who cannot recall their past? Stars Alexis Bledel and Zachary Levi.

Behind the scenes

Many of the actors who portrayed special education students in the movie A Smile as Big as the Moon (2012) have special needs themselves. Similarly, Love Is Never Silent (1985) featured deaf actors and explored many issues that people in the deaf community face.


In the beginning

Hallmark Hall of Fame was born out of a 1951 memo from Joyce Hall to his national sales force that opened with the line, "Dear Fellows: We're going to try our hand at television." At that time, Hall considered most of the programs on television to be short on quality and intellectual worth. "But we wanted shows that would not only be top entertainment but top quality as well," he said. "We wanted shows that would be appreciated by the entire family, and we wanted people to feel they had benefited from the time spent watching them."

Groundbreaking presentations

Many Hallmark Hall of Fame presentations have been groundbreaking, from Hamlet (1953), the first play by William Shakespeare ever presented on television which was watched by more people than had seen it on stage during the 240 years since it was written, to the fourth production of Amahl and the Night Visitors (1951), which was the first sponsored network show to be broadcast in color. Throughout the years, the movies have tackled tough issues, historical hardships and real-life challenges—from addiction to illness—in an honest, authentic way.
