Just to show I am not really Grinch-y about Christmas specials, I’m very happy that Christmas with the King Family is out on DVD. Those of us who grew up with the King Family in the 1960’s remember their cheery good humor and lovely harmonies. This show, also broadcast on PBS, has highlights from the 17 holiday specials they did over the years, with reminiscences from the King Sisters and the cousins. In one touching moment that will resonate with today’s audience, one of the sisters gets a surprise visit from her son, who was in the military, captured on camera for the 1967 show. The King family is still going strong — you can follow them on Facebook.
Trailer: The Little Prince The beloved book The Little Prince has been gorgeously animated, with voices including Jeff Bridges, James Franco, and Rachel McAdams. I love this trailer.
