Art director Stephen Goosson has quite a collection of props strewn about the living room set. No doubt, there are a few inside jokes regarding the items in the Vanderhof living room. On the walls, there are two Alabama Crimson Tide pennants and three photos each of Jean Arthur, Lionel Barrymore, Ann Miller and one of Dub Taylor. On the mantel, there is a photo of Anton Pavlovich Chekhov and a bust of Dan Peggotty from David Copperfield as played by Lionel Barrymore in the 1935 movie. Scattered about are other movie references such as a statuette of Micawber from David Copperfield and several pieces from the Capra movie "Lost Horizon." There is a bust of Frank Morgan and an unidentified wooden figurine that sits in front of the typewriter. Finally, next to Grandpa's chair is a Midland "jump-spark" cigar table lighter that is similar to the model that will be used in It's a Wonderful Life.
