a few of my favorite things

Capote's short story A Christmas Memory (1946), a sweet remembrance about a seven year old and the adventures with his best friend in the whole World...the gentle Ernest Lubitsch masterpiece, The Shop Around The Corner (1940), with its romance and comedy mixed in with good old Capitalism...The Honeymooner's, 'Twas The Night Before Christmas (1955), the best ever TV Christmas episode, where all the joys of the season are played out on the barest of stages, including a great kiss at the finish, with the cast taking bows out of character...and, of course, all thirteen minutes and forty-one seconds of John Coltrane's soprano sax on the stirring, My Favorite Things (1960).
