This Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass gem reminds me of my own life. Heat Miser and Snow Miser are always on my shoulders whenever I am contemplating heavy decisions, and only Mother Nature can speak any sense into them.
Rankin and Bass again. Fred Astaire makes a great puppet. Tom Waitsâ vocal delivery comes from Burgermeister Meisterburger.
Rankin and Bass yet again. The best little puppets ever. The story is perfect: âYou look funny, so get lost!â âBut I have a special skill!â âWho cares? Get lost, freak!â âOops, looks like we need the freak after all.â¦â
It is a wonderful life, and this melodrama illustrates it.
The musical by Leslie Bricusse based on Dickensâ Christmas Carol and starring Albert Finney. Great acting and some of the best songs no one ever sings. Albert Finney is remarkable. This great story is a reminder that if you want to turn your life around, be sure that you make a great deal of money in your jerk phase so that you can buy everyoneâs affection when you are redeemed.
