My All-Time Favorite!

I love this movie and it's a Christmas tradition to watch it with as many of my kids as I can get together. As a young boy in the 50s and 60s I grew up watching old movies on television with my mother. Jimmy Stewart has always been my favorite actor, not in any small measure because of this movie. It was my mother's fondness for him that initially led me to this great discovery. Having my own roots in a small community of western Pennsylvania, only 60 miles from Jimmy's hometown, helped to cement my affinity for him as well. Moving and inspiring the film is a human drama that touches my funny bone and my innermost senses in ways few movies ever do. Yes it's a bit sappy but it's an all-American classic with a message of personal struggle and hope. In all it's simplicity it is simply great entertainment while at the same time leaving us no doubt as to the essential truth of what's *really* important in life. We all matter. We all have purpose and it IS "a Wonderful Life"

What better to do on Christmas Eve?

It was a lot of fun to watch this movie on a big screen on Christmas Eve; I think it should become a Christmas tradition that this movie's shown, somewhere. We even got the "treat" of a minor power outage stopping the (digital) film, just like the old days when the film would break. The theater was very gracious, and gave us free movie passes, even though we weren't upset by the power outage (what could they do?). The only thing I didn't care for was the film was shown in a "square" format, not full-width; perhaps that's the only available format? We enjoyed ourselves, regardless. "Attaboy, Clarence!"

It's Really That Wonderful

Yep, still great. Even better with a crowd and on a big screen. And the subtle genius of the film is that Capra frames the primary catharsis around the small victories over mounting mundane obstacles that chip away at our self worth. George Bailey doesn't get everything he ever wanted, but he finds out that, when a good man reaches out, he can find more than anyone will ever need.
