The Slice

Zuzu grew up to be a self-serving idiot

The TCM channel recently trotted out a special on Christmas movies over the years. Though there were a few good bits, I wish I had that hour back.

There was, though, one astonishing moment. It came courtesy of the rather dim woman who, as a child, played Zuzu in "It's a Wonderful Life." She suggested that the Jimmy Stewart film should have won the Academy Award for 1946's Best Picture instead of "The Best Years of Our Lives."


I like "It's a Wonderful Life" as much as the next guy. I consider it high praise to be called someone's "Old building and loan pal."

But it's simply not in the same league as "Best Years."

Teacher says every time a bell rings, some child actress grows up to be a moron.
