IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
FRANK CAPRA | USA | 1946 | 130 MIN | PG
A perennial holiday favorite that somehow never loses its heart-rending, inspirational power, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE is the story of George Bailey (James Stewart), a young man with big ambitions who dreams of seeing the world. Over the years, we watch as George falls for his sweetheart Mary (Donna Reed), takes over the struggling family business, and faces off against greedy banker Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore), never managing to get out of the sleepy little town of Bedford Falls. After a series of devastating setbacks, George finds himself questioning the value of his own life. It takes a kind-hearted angel named Clarence (Henry Travers) to show George just how much his life has touched those around him.
Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers
