Both were flops when they opened; both have found new appreciation as the years go by. It’s a Wonderful Life costar Karolyn Grimes — who played Jimmy Stewart’s youngest daughter Zuzu — tells Bill Newcott how the movie changed her life more than 30 years after she was in it…and “Popeye’s” Paul “Wimpy” Dooley recalls discovering the genius of Robin Williams.
