Christmas Gifts for My Favorite Movie Characters


Here is my wish list for a few of my needy favorites:

Vivian Revere ("Three on a Match")


I wish Vivian a trip to rehab before her son was kidnapped and she took that final swan dive out the window. It might have helped.

Lina Lamont ("Singin' in the Rain")


I wish Lina a seat on the board at Monumental Pictures. After all the money she made that studio, she needs a nice cushy job. I guess I should wish Kathy Selden a job at MGM, as I'm sure Lina would not hire her.

Max Von Mayerling ("Sunset Boulevard")

I wish Max one more chance behind a real camera. I also hope he has Norma's power of attorney, so that he can pay her legal fees and maybe move the chimp to a pet cemetery.

Rocky Sullivan ("Angels with Dirty Faces")


For the boy who could not run as fast as his pal, Father Jerry, a brand new pair of sneakers. Maybe these would have helped him avoid a life of crime.

Mr. Bernstein ("Citizen Kane")


I wish Mr. Bernstein a visit from the girl in the white dress with the white parasol. She will tell him all about her life and confess that not a month has gone by since she saw him over 20 years ago that he has not crossed her mind.

Wishing you and yours a lovely holiday and a very happy new year. See you in 2015!

Very clever idea, Chick! I always loved Mr. Bernstein. Rocky, Max and Vivian always brought tears, and Lina is just plain fabulous! Merry Christmas to you and thanks for the fun today.

Witty and smart Christmas post, FC! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you--and all those other wonderful "People in the Dark".

A very merry Christmas and happy New Year to you. Looking forward to another year of your fabulous posts!

Wonderful witty wishes for some great characters, my dear. Happy holidays to you and yours - hope to see you at the TCM festival next year (coming soon).

Hi Patty. Yes! We will finally share that much needed cocktail!! Can't wait.

Wonderful, wonderful post!
I also wish Mr. Bernstein could meet his girl with the white parasol once more, and I'm sure the chimp should go to a pet cemetery.
Maybe Lina Lamont could get a star on the Walk of Fame (without making a speech, of course)? Or she could star in Max's last picture ;)
Kisses! And Merry Christmas!

Le - what a great idea - Max and Lina. Perfect. Have a wonderful holiday, my friend. ♥

Wonderful gifts for these characters!

I agree that Lina L. should be given a prominent studio board position. After all, she is a shimmering star...!

Ruth - Lina would have done a great job -she had a nose for business and a voice for chalkboards.

Hi Chick! Those movies seem great! It’s really hard not to think about the what-could’ve-beens. Those actors contributed a lot to the success of the movies they were casted for. And I don’t think it won’t be too much if they could have a good break for that. Haha! Anyway, thanks for sharing!
