We’re pleased to release Episode #45 of the Merry Podcast Titled Classic Christmas Movie Trivia.
In the absence of any new Christmas movies on the horizon that have any hope of becoming another treasured classic we felt this episode looking back at the Christmas movies we love was appropriate and timely. Three great movies were made without about 18 months of each other in 1946-47 that we still enjoy every year: It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, and The Bishop’s Wife.
We explore these three movies in detail and they take us on some unexpected journeys: — Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, John Phillips Sousa and the Academy Awards. We muse a little in this episode as well as we dream about the Christmas movies we WANT them to make.
Home Alone, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is also on the agenda in this episode with a fond look back.
In all, it is better than an hour of Christmas movie fun and frivolity.
