"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. Admittedly, compared to Miracle on 34th Street or National Lampo... 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?

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1940's) (86 movies items)

" Notes: Before watching the damned thing, I have to admit it, I was a little bit skeptical at first. Indeed, I had seen a couple of movies directed by Frank Capra such as ‘It Happened One Night’ and ‘Mr. Deeds Goes to Town’ and, to be honest, even though I did like those movies, I can’t say I was really blown away by them. Indeed, I have noticed that some classics don’t really age that well, at least, that’s my opinion and sometimes I have a hard time to connect with them. However"
