Christmas Movies Actually

Dec 10, 2022

Kerry and Collin squeeze in a previously unplanned episode by celebrating the 80th anniversary of "The Man Who Came To Dinner," starring Bette Davis, Ann Sheridan and Monty Woolley. This movie never quite gets its due, except for the occasional "alternative Christmas movie" list. Don't we all wish we could be Sheridan Whiteside once in a while? Who is capable of stealing his thunder when he/she enters the room? What was Bette Davis' own reaction to the film? All this, plus three films in the Book segment, one of which is directly related to the main topic.

Movies covered in the Book segment:

"The Wizard of Oz" (1939)

"The Hustler" (1961)

"Kiss of the Spider Woman" (1985)
