In our American culture It's a Wonderful Life has become a true holiday classic. It's the story of George Bailey, the "everyman" from the small town of Bedford Falls. Bailey's dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. Teetering on the edge of tragic dispair, his guardian angel descends upon him on Christmas Eve to show him what the world would have been like had he never been born.This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This fine dramatization celebrates the faith of the season, and the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family are all that any us need.This is the perfect holiday treat for the entire family.
