I decided today would be great Christmas Movie Day. And, in my humble opinion, the greatest Christmas movie ever made is the incomparable It's A Wonderful Life. This Christmas fantasy comedy-drama has it all. First - the story about a man who comes to the realization that his life has meaning to those around him. Second - the lead actor is Jimmie Stewart, one of the greatest and most respected actors in history. Third - the director is the acclaimed multiple Oscar winning Frank Capra. Released in 1946, this great story of George Bailey, his family and the people of Bedford Falls has pathos, humor and joy in life in all its complexities that brings home the meaning of Christmas. It has since become the No. 1 Christmas movie of all time and consistently in the Top 25 movies of all time.
So sit back and enjoy some scenes from this great Christmas story. And you really need to find it on your TV and watch the entire movie. You can't watch it and not be moved from laughter to tears and back again.
