Director Frank Capra’s inspiring classic balances pathos and joy in the tale of distraught George Bailey (James Stewart at his finest), who is about to commit suicide on Christmas Eve - until helpful, elderly angel Clarence (Henry Travers) shows him how his death would affect those around him. Featuring Donna Reed as the love of George’s life in the role that launched her to stardom, and a young, charming Gloria Grahame. If you’ve only seen it on TV, see it now on the big screen, the way it was meant to be seen! (American Cinematheque)
