"It's a wonderful laugh! It's a wonderful love!"

  • Genre: Drama, Kids & Family, Classics, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Comedy,
  • Studio: RKO Radio Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Black & White | Duration: 135 Mins

This masterpiece from Frank Capra still has a lot to say about community spirit and is a film with much more to it than feel-good sentimentality. As the suicidal man who is shown the value of his life by his guardian angel, George Bailey is Mr Deeds, John Doe and Mr Smith rolled into one and only James Stewart could have given him the self-doubt that gnaws away at his essential decency. As with all good morality tales, the villain has to be exceptional, too, and Lionel Barrymore is at the peak of his powers as the villainous Potter. The term Capra-esque is too often misapplied: forget the imitations and revel in the genuine article.
