I would like to think that you are all my friends, for to be without friends is a serious form of poverty.Aloysius T. McKeever, It Happened on 5th Avenue
FIRST TIME VIEWERS: ALISA, ANDREW, BETHANY, CHERYL, JOE
The holidays are upon us and it’s time for the movies we all know and love and have watched a hundred times. But, for our purposes, those won’t do. We searched high and low for a holiday film none of us had ever seen before. We found it in director/producer Roy Del Ruth’s 1947 romantic comedy, It Happened on 5th Avenue.
Can a lesser known winter-time movie be any good? Is there a reason this film didn’t become a holiday classic? Is it a screwball comedy, a romance, a social commentary, a musical or all of the above? Could this actually be a Scrooge story in disguise? Does it’s two hour run-time make sense? And just how romantic is it to shoot holes in a wall with a shotgun? Join us in the O’Connor mansion as we try It Happened on 5th Avenue on for size.
