Christmas Classic - It's a Wonderful Life

One of my absolute favorite movies is It's a Wonderful Life, staring James Stewart and Donna Reed. Watching this movie can make a person realize that you do make a difference to others, hopefully for the good.

The film was loosely base on a short story titled The Greatest Gift by Philip Van Doren Stern. Much of the film is told in flashback of George Bailey's life, which can be distracting, but in this case essential for it is told by angels. Yes, angels. Is it any wonder that I liked it?

Hard to believe, but this film was a disappointment to the studio. The film earned five oscar nominations, but didn't win any. However, this priceless little gem is considered to be one of the 100 best American films ever made and was placed as number one as the most inspirational American films of all time.

Take a peek at a few of the great scenes of this Christmas classic.


  1. I LOVE this movie. My kids do too. About ten years ago we set a record and watched it eight times in a row--seriously.

  2. Such an amazing movie. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. Wow! That must be a record. I see it two or three times during each Christmas season and I never get tired of it. Have a wonderful Christmas!!!

  4. Bethany, I'm glad you think the movie was amazing. I do, too. Merry Christmas!!!
