Holiday Viewing: Elf
Christmas season at my parents’ house always meant time spent with family (my mom being my favorite, of course), preparing and eating good food (mostly made by my mom), and watching movies and our favorite shows.

Holiday Viewing: The Dead
O, the rain falls on my heavy locks
And the dew wets my skin,

Holiday Viewing: The Shop Around the Corner
James Stewart was perfect for the part – “the antithesis of the old-time matinee idol; he holds his public by his very lack of a handsome face or a suave manner.” Frank Capra may very well have been drawn to the same qualities when he cast Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life, but in 1940, it was Ernst Lubitsch who spotted the everyman in his leading man.
