I am sitting here watching an old western, "High Noon" with Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly. I'm actually laughing my ass off because the score for the movie has a recurring melody which is exactly the melody Keith strums and sings the news to in the "Don't bring your guns to town, Santa" episode. I know that the episodes were named for classic movies and so forth, but was surprised to hear that this melody actually existed in this classic western!

Look closer. "High Noon" was filmed on the same western street as the PF's Xmas episode. Very Happy

Hey, Sheriff Swell: Very Happy

I've never been much of a Western movie fan, but I knew I'd hear this song before when I first heard DC's reworking of the lyrics (luckily for me, I also recalled its title) for the PF Christmas episode, I just didn't know its origin -- until now, thanks to you. So, I researched it online, just for my own edification as I'm sure YOU already knew this: "Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darling" was written by Dmiti Tiomkin, and performed (on the movie's soundtrack) by Tex Ritter. It was also 1953's Oscar-Winning song. How cool is that! Laughing

See you at the taco stand Saturday, I hope, for Gord's first meeting of "The PF DVD Watcher's Club", and thanks for clearing up this PF mystery for me! Wink

Best,
Sabrina Very Happy

I am a huge Christmas fan...do up the house like Clark Griswold every year. So this episode is my favorite PF episode. Not only for the Christmas thing, but I enjoy the fantasy stories. The Monkees did that a lot. Not to mention, the Christmas Card album was one of their best.

You know, I never noticed it in High Noon, though to be honest I can't say that I have watched the movie in its entirety. only bits and pieces onTCM.
My husband did get the DVD not too long ago so I guess I should watch it and listen for the music.
Nice trivia to know. Thanks guys.
