It's a Wonderful Life (1946)



Reviews and Comments

What can be said about this famous Christmas classic that hasn't been said already? Not much. Frank Capra's emotionally involving film about a man at the end of his rope discovering his self-worth with the aid of an endearing angel has stood the test of time without ageing a bit, and it's as popular today as it ever was. It's immensely satisfying, and Jimmy Stewart's performance -- his first after leaving the service after World War II -- is outstanding.
