Episode Ten: Home for the Holidays with Sam Greisman
Have you gotten this far in your life without knowing that Sally Field starred in a 1972 Christmas-themed horror movie that pits her against the baroness from The Sound of Music? Not only does your host get into this Aaron Spelling-produced made-for-TV wonder, but he does so with writer-director Sam Greisman, who just happens to be Sally’s son. He reports that his mother remembers the film having a great cast but nonetheless being “a piece of shit.” Home for the Holidays also stars fellow Mary Todd Lincoln enthusiast Julie Harris and Jessica Walter, whose character is drunk the entire movie.
