"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"

A Christmastime staple, Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life is a rare film which has withstood the test of time and continues to touch millions of people through its themes, boundless appeal, and emotional power. Placed alongside such movies as Miracle on 34th ... read more

Frank Capra's more timeless films seem to be the caffeine of classic Hollywood. They're peppy, fun to consume and leave you with a positive buzz until the cold hard realities of your world set in.

George Bailey spends his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town, Bedford Falls, as we see in flashback. But in the present, on Christmas Eve, he is broken and suicidal over the misplacing of an $8000 loan and the machinations of the evil millionaire, Mr. Potter. His guardian angel, Clarence, falls to Earth, literally, and shows him how his town, family, and friends would turn out if he had never been born. George meant so much to so many people; should he really throw it all away?

"Although Frank Capra claimed that he never thought of the perennial seasonal classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' as a Christmas film, the basis for this ravishing film was actually a short story which the author, Philip Van Doren Stern, self-published and sent out to his friends as Christmas cards. After the card came to the attention of RKO producer David Hempstead, it gradually made its way into Capra's orbit. Capra claimed he wanted to make the film as an attempt to "combat a modern trend toward "
