Christmas Countdown: It's A Wonderful Life

The name George Bailey has been and always will be synonymous with Jimmy Stewart. Despite the many roles Stewart has taken (Vertigo, Harvey, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Rear Window, etc.) the fact that he is most remembered as a small business owner down on his luck resonates with the underdog in all of us.

After giving everything to Bedford Falls George Bailey faces a calamity, his uncle has lost the $8,000 deposit for the bank. Now George has to recoup the money or go to jail. Facing suicide to save his family from grief George receives the help of a compassionate angel who shows him how much the world would miss George Bailey.

Frank Capra's most beloved film and the best Christmas movie around. It's a Wonderful Life endures as a beloved testament to everything Christmas embodies: family, friends and the joy of life.
