Trivia 10: ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’
A bit of American mid-century coolness (1965, just before things went to hell), back when among other things orthodox Christianity was still sort of mainstream (hooray, no effects of Vatican II, and the mainline was still sort of socially conservative). The main point: Sparky really was a talent with artistic integrity – keep the Bible passage, no laugh track and that’s final – even though ironically he didn’t care for Vince Guaraldi’s cool jazz, but was smart enough to use it. From Mark Shea.
