OF ALL TIME
Frank Capra's "It's A Wonderful Life",
starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed,
is a sure-fire movie to put you
in the holiday mood.
(It did for me,
just the other night.)
It's one of those movies
I never tire of viewing,
and sure enough,
it always seems to play
this time of year.
Jimmy Stewart plays a small town
Savings & Loan banker,
in despair through no fault of his own.
His guardian angel, Clarence, shows him
what life would have been like
if he never existed.
Interestingly, this 1946 film was
considered a box office flop upon release,
even though it was nominated for 5 Oscars,
and recognized by the American Film Institute
as one of the "100 best" films of all time.
If you haven't seen it in a while (or at all),
this is a good one to watch.
And it NEVER FAILS
to put you in the Christmas spirit.
(P.S. Clarence gets his wings.)
