It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
A holiday favourite for generations... George Bailey has spent his entire life giving to the people of Bedford Falls. All that prevents rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town is George's modest building and loan company. But on Christmas Eve the business's $8,000 is lost and George's troubles begin.
Absolutely the worst movie.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
The movie really just wants to entertain people.
Now that's what you call a classic movie. The deep emotions and the role one can play in life is well expressed in one of the most wonderful ways. The angel is just symbolic of what if not. George Bailey- not a rich man economically but certainly emotionally and socially. What else one needs if one has friends is the central idea of the movie. Superb to watch. Must watch for everyone.
I have always heard about this movie as a Xmas classic (maybe because a clip is shown in Gremlins) and having watching it now, i agree: a bit like Scrooge, it's about a salvation in the holiday but unlike him, the guy is pure good while Scrooge is evil. For a movie fan, you will be happy because the movie has the same feeling as Spielberg comedies, it begins like Stand by me and ends like BTTF2: the nightmarish small town V2 is really well done. James Stewart looks like very much David Lynch and he is a true fine actor! The story is full of good values, hope and in addition is aware in punching greedy capitalism! So today you won't find a comedy so deep, so social while the situation would need urgently so have fun and a education with this one while you can!
I have seen many movies. But this movie is the no. 1 in my list. When I was passing a very bad time in my life some how I saw this movie. After watch this I feel all my sorrows gone away. I felt like It's A Wonderful Life. Very good story. This movie teach me a very good lesson. Must watch before die.
One of the best Christmas movies of all time. James Stewart stars in one of his greatest roles,as George Bailey, and Donna Reed is outstanding as Mary.It has become a holiday favorite in my home, as I have enjoyed it with my children, and now beginning to share with grandchildren.
