Happy Armistice Day

You probably figured that the Christmas perennial It’s a Wonderful Life won a few Oscars. It didn’t, though it was nominated for several (the RKO technical team did win an award for a new technique for making fake snow). All the awards in the major categories for which the film was nominated went to another film, The Best Years of Our Lives, which is airing on TCM now. It seems to get better with each viewing. Scott Johnson has an interesting piece on the movie and the remarkable team that put it together. That’s it for now. Have a happy Armistice Day.
