It's a Wonderful Life

Frank Capra (Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Arsenic and Old Lace) directs this beloved story of desperate bank manager George Bailey (James Stewart) who contemplates jumping off a bridge on Christmas Eve. Clarence, his bumbling guardian angel, intervenes—showing George the good he has done in the world—and sets him on the right path. Audiences remember this timeless 1946 film mainly for Stewart’s touching performance, but it also features great supporting turns from legendary Hollywood figures such as Lionel Barrymore, Donna Reed, and Gloria Grahame.
