    DVD trailer for It's a Wonderful Life. The legendary James Stewart stars as George Bailey. George is a noble man who has spent much of his life on a crusade to stop shady local businessman Henry Potter (Lionel Barrymore) from taking over the picturesque town of Bedford Falls. However, on a typically snow-covered Christmas Eve, George plays right into Potter's hands when his uncle manages to lose a considerable amount of their family business' money on the way to the bank. Ironically, Potter discovers the missing money and hides it, knowing that its disappearance will tarnish the Baileys' white-than-white reputation. Taking responsibility for the shortage and realising that he faces prison, George attempts to kill himself but in a bizarre twist of fate is visited by a guardian angel. In true Dickensian style, George's newfound friend gives him the opportunity to glimpse a world without him in it and the repercussions his absence has on his nearest and dearest.moreless

    It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 film directed by Frank Capra starring Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey and was released on December 20, 1946. It was based on a short story by Philip Van Doren Stern. The film is about a man named George Bailey who tries to take his own life on Christmas Eve because of financial hardship. He is protected by a guardian angel named Clarence Odbody played by Henry Travers and given a great gift, a chance to see what the world would be like without him in it. Through this gift, the film shows that each person's life has a great impact on all the people around them. Since its release it has become a classic, and it is rebroadcasted every year around Christmas. At the time, the film was considered a box office flop but over time it has garnered much praise, culminating in an inclusion on the American Film Institute's 100 Best American Films Ever Made list.moreless
