It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
Dir: Frank Capra
Starring: James Stewart, Donna Reed
Let’s start this years advent calendar off with a bang – It’s A Wonderful Life. The quintessential Christmas film stars James Stewart and Donna Reed and is the blueprint for what we call a Christmas movie today. Love, loss and revelations are the key to seasonal success and its all here as we watch poor old George Bailey go through the highs and lows of the holiday season. Give this a watch and we can guarantee you will feel the Christmas spirit…just make sure you watch the whole thing, the first half is pretty bleak!
