In Part 1, “Ghost of Q&As Past” screenwriter Larry Karaszewski returns to the show to discuss his all-time favorite Christmas film, the little known 1969 T.V. Movie J.T., and AC moderator Jim Hemphill breaks down what makes DIE HARD, KISS KISS BANG BANG, and EYES WIDE SHUT the ultimate films for the season.
