Arthouse Legends - It's a Wonderful Life

In 1946, with World War II officially at an end, Hollywood was getting back to business as usual with filmmakers and actors alike coming out of their military service. For Frank Capra, this was the time to finally make a film he had in the works prior to the war. Enlisting Jimmy Stewart once again, he told the story of George Bailey, a suicidal small-town businessman whose impact on others would be examined on Christmas Eve. Although It's A Wonderful Life was a box office disappointment and was panned by critics at the time, it would eventually become the quintessential holiday film. But does the film earn its wings or should we wish it never existed? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Jonolobster pay a visit to Bedford Falls to find out.
