What are your favorite holiday films for this time of year?
On the second half of the Radioactivity call-in program on 12?24 I asked listeners for recommendations for holiday films with a social conscience. I started the segment playing some sound from IT"S A WONDERFUL LIFE, a film with a strong progressive point of view: pro-low and middle income people; anti-corporate takeover,; pro affordable housing; pro putting the needs of the community above special interests: pro-family (in the best sense of those words); etc.
Listeners recommended the following films as their holiday favorites: -PRANCER w/Sam Elliott -ELF w/Will Farrell -KING OF HEARTS w/Alan Bates, Catherine Deneuve -SCROOGED w/ Bill Murray -FIDDLER ON THE ROOF -MEET JOHN DOE w/Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck -MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS w/ Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy -LARCENY INCORPORATED w/Edward G. Robinson, Anthony Quinn, Donna Reed -MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET w/Natalie Wood, Edmond Gwenn
