  1. This is my favorite movie. Not just my favorite Christmas movie, but my favorite of all movies. My only quibble is that all the initial bit about Clarence’s mission and “management” approval of his plan never gets followed up on after about the middle of the movie. In a modern movie, they might have toyed with that during the credits to avoid breaking the scene at the Bailey house Christmas….

  2. I only saw it for the first time a couple of months ago, and found it interesting that it is much less sugar coated most of the times than I expected. This is dark stuff, especially learning what all these supposedly nice people are capable of, and how easy it would be to turn the town into a wicked witch lair just by removing one little piece of the puzzle. But indeed a very fine piece of work from Capra. I could have done without the slightly camp opening scenes in heaven, though… My thoughts after seeing it: http://thomas4cinema.wordpress.com/2010/12/29/its-a-wonderful-life-frank-capra-1946/
