Classic Christmas Movie: It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)


Frank Capra


James Stewart

Donna Reed

Lionel Barrymore


An angel helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed.


Out of all the Christmas movies in the world, this is my favorite. When I was little, back in the days of VHS tapes, I wore two copies out. Two. That’s how many times I watched it. You can take your Christmas Vacation and your Home Alone, both great movies to be fair, but the Christmas movie I look forward to watching every year is It’s a Wonderful Life.

It’s got the nice supernatural element I love in Christmas movies, there’s the amazing acting of Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, and a bald villain in a wheelchair. There’s so much hope and love and an intense feeling that they can overcome everything. It’s beautiful.

It’s a Wonderful Life is everything I love about the holiday season.


Merry Christmas!
