"The car chase scene is amusing to anyone familiar with San Francisco. You can't turn a corner in one neighborhood and in the next shot, you're three miles away in a completely different part of town! But it looks good in the movie."
"My favorites are "It's a Wonderful Life," (1946) "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947) and "White Christmas" (1954), but only for the musical numbers. Danny Kaye made Bing Crosby break up so much during the…"

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I am a retired television studio technician, married with no children. I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since I was eight years old, with a brief stop in New York City. I have a collection of books on classic movies, mainly biographies. Other than movies, my interests include cooking, baking, non-fiction books and all kinds of music from ragtime to swing to opera.
Once, years ago when I was a secretary, I talked on the phone with Joan Crawford. She called the office and left a message for my boss. I remember that she had a lovely voice and was very gracious.
