Christmas Countdown: It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

December 1, 2011

Every day from December 1st to 24th, we will be counting down to Christmas by profiling holiday classics both old and new.  Arranged in chronological order, these are some of our favourites to watch every year.  Enjoy!

Directed by Frank Capra, It’s a Wonderful Life stars James Stewart as a man slowly descending into depression before finally appreciating every second of his life.  This is a complete package of storytelling and performances that works on multiple levels, in some ways growing stronger with every viewing.  The themes of finding meaning in your life and discovering your place in the world are just as relevant today as they were in 1946, making It’s a Wonderful Life an enduring Christmas classic.
