It's A Wonderful Life
It's A Wonderful Life is a Frank Capra film from 1946 starring James Stewart abd Donna Reed. I was 8 years old when it first came out and I think I have seen it every Christmas since.
It is the story of a man who gave up his personal dreams to take care of his family after his Dad died. He did everything he could to help people and his town, even taking care of the small bank that his Dad had built and making sure the townspeople were able to borrow money at lower rates.
He was driven to suicide by circumstances beyond his control one Christmas Eve and went so far as to stand on the bridge where he planned to jump.......but an angel saved him.
The angel showed him what life in that town and in his family would have been like if he had never lived........and he was finally able to see what a big difference he had made in that town and to his family.
