  1. Why won’t the networks air “It Happened One Christmas”? It is a great remake of “It’s a Wonderful life”. Marlos Thomas is great as the main character.

  2. Please, please, please air:

    (1) It Happened One Christmas with Marlo Thomas
    (2) It Came Upon Midnight Clear with Mickey Rooney
    (3) An Christmas Carol with Henry Winkler
