Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Two views of the entertainment world of Christmas 1957: Pre-Christmas shopping and American comedy as seen thru the eyes of Jack Benny, and Ingmar Bergman's masterful 'Wild Strawberries' opens in Sweden the day after Christmas and becomes a classic from Day One


MiscVideos78rpm YouTube Channel video: The Jack Benny Program - Christmas Shopping (Original air date: December 15, 1957). Uploaded December 23, 2012. http://youtu.be/u17Xo0dqJ34


And on December 26th, 1957, Ingmar Bergman's classic film of remembrance, "Wild Strawberries" -Smultronställe- officially opened in Sweden. 
One of my all-time favorites, which I've probably seen. conservatively, over 20 times, mostly on TCM, and a film I always gets something new out of.
Starring Victor Sjostrom, and a 22-year old Bibi AnderssonIngrid Thulin and Gunnar Björnstrand
