To many families in the United States and beyond, Christmas just isn’t Christmas until they have watched “It’s a Wonderful Life,” starring James Stewart. Most people know the 1946 movie, a Christmas fantasy, filled with love, angst and magic, in which a man named George Bailey (Stewart), his dreams long pushed aside so he could help others, has decided to commit suicide, But, before he can do the deed, his guardian angel (one Clarence Odbody, played by Henry Travers) swoops in to show Bailey how all the lives he has touched in hometown Bedford Falls, if he had never been born. It’s a Christmas classic must-see and if you haven’t ever seen it, give it a shot.
Or, if you are in the market for a live version of the holiday favorite, how about buying Cyber Monday priced tickets all this week for “It’s a Wonderful Life,” as Studio Tenn interprets it, in their own Norman Rockwell style retelling of Frank Capra’s 1946 film .
