In the spirit of the season, here are some Christmas wishes for some movie-folks who might need a helping hand from Santa.
Santa, do your stuff!
I wish for Scarlett and Rhett to find their way back to one another.
I wish for Citizen Kane's Mr. Bernstein to meet that girl in the white dress.
I fervently wish Mrs. Danvers does NOT find any matches at Manderley while the master and his missus are out.
I wish for Rick to get his letter of transit and meet up with Ilsa in Paris after the war. All will be forgiven.
I wish for Norma Desmond to make Salome and that's it's a big, mega- hit.
I wish for Rocky Sullivan to get a last minute pardon from the Governor.
I wish for Old Yeller to get a rabies shot.
I wish for Tony Randall to get Doris Day just once!
I wish for Margo Channing to beat Eve Harrington out for a Tony, an Oscar and an Emmy - all in the same year!I wish for Irene Dunne/Deborah Kerr to look both ways before rushing to the top of the Empire State Building.
Oh yes - and I wish for world peace.And - to you, Dear Reader, may Santa leave your heart's desire in your stocking, under the tree or any place else where you can find it!
