IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (Theatrical Release USA 1946)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

It’s a Wonderful Life—Superb! Bravo! Bravo! film—sports one of the best storylines brought to the big screen. This is a ‘no fault found’ movie starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed that stands the test of time and does not relegate itself to academic study. Seventy-two years later it serves testimony to Frank Capra’s ability to capture the heart and soul of an audience. Get ready for classic acting that relies on the stupendous skills of Lionel Barrymore, Beulah Bondi, Ward Bond, Henry Travers, and Carl ‘Alfa Alfa’ Switzer (Our Gang).

Storyline
