Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4057 - During this time of year I always watch my favorite Christmas time film, "It's A Wonderful Life". It gets me into the spirit of Christmas actually...
In addition, this year I have my "It's A Wonderful Life" village set up. This is the set I bought from Target several years ago. The village is actually spread out over three tables in my home, as there are quite a few buildings and characters that are part of the full set. I have not listed my Village for sale yet, but here is a link to see what the Village items are selling for.
I also tend to watch other Christmas films during the Holidays. Last night I watched a 1961 film, 'Babes In Toyland', featuring one of my favorite stars, Annette Funicello. Right now I'm listening to the LP soundtrack on my new turntable/record player. So yes, I am really in the mood for Christmas!
The film is fun to watch again, I first saw it back in 1961 when it came out. The info on the film can be found at this Wikipedia link to the film.
I recorded it off the TCM network, but I'm sure you can find it elsewhere during this time of year, or possibly on the web.
There was also a 'comic book' printed about the film. Annette & Tommy Sands are shown on the cover.
So there is a comic book connection also! That makes a video, an LP, and a comic book trifecta!
There are also other 'Babes In Toyland' comics, as seen in this link from Comics.org!
Have fun searching for all three Annette items this Holiday Season!
