Now, Jack Benny always made fun of “The Horn Blows at Midnight,” but this fantasy actually has some delightful moments (oh, and does it ever make me want a really good cup of decaffeinated coffee). With its timeline winding down to the end of the world, and lasting about 58 minutes, it’s an awful fun piece for New Year’s Eve. Enjoy The Horn Blows At Midnight (1949 adaptation for radio\'s Ford Theatre). Please download and save for your collection!
Last night we had the pleasure of watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” with a friend who had never seen it complete before, and had only seen snippets – so it was almost as new to him as it was for Dimitra Giannakoulias, who wrote about why it’s still important to catch IAWL once a year.
Let’s just say that Dimitra, in her article, is far more magnanimous towards mean old Mr. Potter than I am… and if you agree, you’ll like this comedy sketch from 1986:
