I broke out the VHS of "It's a Wonderful Life".  It is loaded with TAGS alumna.  One I had here-to-fore missed was that of Nick from Martini's place before George was given the gift of seeing his family and friends without his life long influence, then Nick the owner of "Nick's" tavern.

'That's it! Out you two pixies go... through the door, or out the window! '  Angry

It is our own Sheldon Leonard, exec. Producer of TAGS, and then some.

I dearly love this movie. Smiley

Happy Thanksgiving folks.

and may I be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to you, as well!

That is a great movie, one that I haven't seen in a few years.

I remember that, for a while, it seemed to air on several channels, multiple times, during the Christmas season, but I haven't seen it as frequently in recent years.

There was a time, a couple years ago, that in the Chicargo market, It's a Wonderful Life was running almost constant between Thanksgiving and Christmas... on different stations, of course.

This one is on my Wish list to the big guy from the North Pole.  I have two VHS copies that I'd love to upgrade.  One is a colorized version.  That and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, It's a Charlie Brown Christmas and A Christmas Story.

I've often wondered if the Bert and Ernie of Sesame Street fame were named as an homage to the IAWL Bert and Ernie.

Yes, they are definitely named after that Bert and Ernie.

A bit off topic, but ABC is airing Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town this evening (12-01-11) at 7 p.m. Central time.

We've already seen How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer this week -- they'll probably run them again between now and Christmas.

It is nice to have your own DVDs, though, because the networks sometime like to delete scenes from a show.

Cool

I've never had any trouble with George being shown an alternate reality- or the fact that he was a young man pushing forty- but...Donna Reed ending up as an old maid?   Shocked

I always half-expect George to call Clarence's bluff on that one.  It just seems a little too far-fetched.    Wink

I agree -- she would have had her pick of several suitors, I would imagine... Cheesy

Sorry for the short notice, but it looks like NBC will be running It's A Wonderful Life this evening (Saturday, Dec. 3rd) at 7 p.m. Central time...we're going to tune in a few minutes from now!

I've known several women who've gone to their graves having never been married.  They were all considered good looking and marriageable.  They just did not find the right man who shared their ideals, goals and morals.  I, personally can believe, even a good looking woman as Mary Hatch would not get married, save for the 'right' man.

Obviously, she had the good sense to turn down the advances of one, Carl "Alflafa" Switzer.  In case anyone of you folks here (Not likely knowing most are Trained Noticers) he is the character Freddy Othello, who is coerced (not much coercion required) to open up the dance floor.  Oddly, Even having a speaking part, he went uncredited.
