On this special holiday episode, Paul Newman suggests a corporation’s board of directors promote Tim Robbins’ recent business school graduate to president as a means of devaluing the stock they wish to buy on January 1 to retain control of the company in THE HUDSUCKER PROXY, Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1994 comedy influenced by the films of Preston Sturges and Frank Capra, including IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.

Mark Pfeiffer and Paul Markoff also share the film-related wishes they hope might be granted this season.
