1. What a great line-up!

The version of Babes in Toyland is the Laurel and Hardy vehicle, which some of us watched for virtually every holiday season in the New York/northern New Jersey area during the 1960s.

2. Coming up: One Great night!

I'm particularly taken with The Shop Around the Corner (pictured) and The Man Who Came to Dinner.
