Being an old movie buff, I dislike having such a negative view of a classic like It’s a Wonderful Life, especially since I can’t let the Christmas season pass without watching Christmas in Connecticut and Miracle on 34th Street. So I ask you readers, should I give it another shot or just stick with my other classic Christmas favorites? Weigh in on this holiday favorite, or tell me about one of your own. One lucky commenter will win an e-book copy of Studio Relations. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year!
Vivien Howard hasn’t forgiven Weston Holmes for almost derailing her career five years ago. Female directors in 1930s Hollywood are few and far between, and a man who coasts by on his good looks and family connections can’t possibly appreciate what it took for her to get to where she is. But when the studio head puts Weston in charge of overseeing Vivien’s ambitious Civil War film, she realizes she has a choice: make nice with her charismatic new boss or watch a replacement director destroy her dream.
Weston Holmes doesn’t know much about making movies, but he knows plenty about money. And thanks to the Depression, ticket sales are dangerously low. The studio can’t afford a flop—or bad press, which is exactly what threatens to unfold when an innocent encounter between Weston and Vivien is misconstrued by the gossip rags. The only solution? A marriage of convenience that will force the bickering duo into an unlikely alliance—and guide them to their own happy Hollywood ending.
