I wish I had a kid to name Zasu. How could she not be a comedienne?

Todd Mason said...

Or a budding pianist...or was the Zasu in IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE the piano student?

Thanks for discussing these overlooked films!

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Qi. You could write one up, too, if you wanted.

K. A. Laity said...

Not to nitpick, but that's Zuzu in Wonderful Life.

:-D

A Zu-pick. A Za-pick. A sentimental fam-flick. It has been a while.
