It's a Wonderful Life

Movie (1946)

Frank Capra's classic sentimental drama is practically guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye of even the most cynical viewer. It tells the tale of a hard-working family man (James Stewart) who comes to think his life has been a complete waste of time and tries to commit suicide. He's visited at the last minute by a guardian angel who makes him realise his true worth by offering him the chance to see how those around him would have been affected had he never been born. Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers, Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell and Frank Faylen are among the excellent supporting cast

    It is one of the best movies ever made. It is all of us always or at least some time in our lives. Black and white, or color, it is one of the very best movies ever. The story is important and not the color. I love it either way. Report abuse

    For sheer enjoyment, Frank Capra films top the list of all directors. This has to be his best, with three or four others right behind. I've been watching this since it first appeared on The Late Show more than fifty years ago and it still is heartening. Report abuse
