It's A Wonderful Life

December 12, 2019 by Avery Faeth

We're in the home stretch for Christmas, so let's get cracking with the classics! "It's a Wonderful Life" (Frank Capra, 1946) stars James Stewart, Donna Reed, and Lionel Barrymore. George Bailey has spent his whole life in Bedford Falls, from his childhood spent working in the pharmacy to marrying his high school sweetheart to taking over his father's banking business. He's always had dreams of something more, though, and duty has kept him bound to his hometown. A series of well-intentioned mishaps threaten his holiday, and he finds himself imagining the world as a better place without him. Enter Clarence, a misfit angel on a mission to prove himself. Through the course of an evening, Clarence takes George on a 'Christmas Carol'-type adventure to see what his impact on the world has really been. A true Christmas miracle, this film is a hand-me-down for generations to come.
