The legendary James Stewart (HARVEY, VERTIGO) stars as George Bailey. George is a noble man who has spent much of his life on a crusade to stop shady local businessman Henry Potter (Lionel Barrymore – TREASURE ISLAND, DUEL IN THE SUN) from taking over the picturesque town of Bedford Falls. However, on a typically snow-covered Christmas Eve, George plays right into Potter's hands when his uncle manages to lose a considerable amount of their family business' money on the way to the bank. Ironically, Potter discovers the missing money and hides it, knowing that its disappearance will tarnish the Baileys' white-than-white reputation. Taking responsibility for the shortage and realising that he faces prison, George attempts to kill himself but in a bizarre twist of fate is visited by a guardian angel. In true Dickensian style, George's newfound friend gives him the opportunity to glimpse a world without him in it and the repercussions his absence has on his nearest and dearest.

Nominated for numerous Academy Awards (including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director) and ranking at number 11 on the American Film Institute's list of 100 greatest movies, Director Frank Capra (MR. DEED'S GOES TO TOWN, LOST HORIZON) managed to create a poignant and feel-good film that has stood the test of time and is rightly considered to be the quintessential Christmas classic.

In the 70s or 80s (I think) US TV didn't want to waste time on B&W films and so paid to have them tinted or colorised .. to my mind as a movie purist it spoils it ...

glad to help (_;)

This is a great movie, had it on video for years, bought it last year on dvd but I opted for the b&w version as I think this is much better than the colourised. Good price for a great movie. heat added

"every time you hear a bell, an angel gets his wings"HOT



Nearly...try: every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.

Film is a classic though, and the colorized (sic) version is still very watchable.

This is quite possibly my fave film of al time but have yet been convinced to move up from my DVD version!
Voted hot for price though

Best film ever made, a flop when it first came out but don't watch it in colour!!!!
Heat added.

I'm fairly ashamed to admit that I'm 30, and have only just watched this a few weeks ago...:|

The colour (sorry color) version is quite technically amazing

Good film, heat from me

superb film, hot price
