Christmas In A Little Tin Box

Due to overwhelming popular demand (actually only one blog reader asked for it) I hereby present an instant replay of my film debut as I star in my first major motion picture. It was originally released on December 14, 2008.

Limos line the curb.

Fans press against the velvet ropes.

Searchlight beams arc across the night sky.

Starlets smile as they sashay along the red carpet.

Stephen Spielberg gnaws his teeth and weeps in envy.

Ginny’s diamonds and jewels flash beside me as I wave photographers aside.

Yes, today marks my film début as I star in my son, Donald Cowart’s film production of Christmas In A Little Tin Box.

Donald originated the idea, directed, produced and masterminded this sure-to-win-an-Oscar, 10-minute, classic movie.

You can view it on line in the box below or as a link at   .

As a viewer at this Premier Showing, you can even start a John Cowart fan club by telling all your friends to watch.

As you might can tell I’m as pleased and tickled and delighted as a kitten catching his first mouse.

Ok, I’ll admit it. There were really no searchlights, starlets, limos or diamonds at the first showing of my film; that was all in my mind. In reality, I even had to pop my own popcorn–but I’m as pleased as if all the Hollywood glitz did really happen.

Donald put a lot of work into this thing. He plans to produce more Bluefish Videos in the future.

Wait! I have to hide. There’s a paparazzi approaching my front door…

Never mind, it was only the mailman.

Relax, click the white triangle in the middle of the following video, and enjoy the movie Christmas In A Little Tin Box

    I love that “everything about Christmas” cost you a nickel. I was listening to the radio in the car this morning and the announcer was urging people to donate toys to our local give-away. As she put it, “… or else some kids won’t have Christmas.” So sad that she missed the only gift that really matters.

    We have some very similar tin ornaments that we got in Mexico years ago. Maybe your box comes from south of the border.

    Dear John C,
    I’ve uploaded the video on my facebook site. I’ve got some family members who can use a good sermon.
    Hope to be hearing from your Donald real soon. If he doesn’t come through, you must let me know.

    Awesome that you’re son is with you in wanting to share the gospel.

    Cool movie-et and fun how you used the nativity in a box to share that story that’s definitely changed our lives.

    Outstanding, John. This is you at your best — real home-spun Gospel preachin’. I really wish, if you still have your stuff that you used to use for your Bible story presentations, that you would tape them (or what ever they do to capture something like this — tape, film, record — that’s it) record them and post them to youtube. I wish I had thought of this suggestion all the times we talked about what you should do with all that stuff. It’s probably at the dump by now. Anyway, this is really good.
