(1946) Directed by Frank Capra. Screenplay: Frances Goodrich, based on Philip Van Doren Sternís novel.
Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Henry Travers, Lionel Barrymore.

Somehow it is no surprise that many of the best classic Hollywood films were directed by – and starring – immigrants, including Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Margaret O’Hara, and Billy Wilder. Born in Sicily, Frank Capra not only became a champion of American resiliance and hope, he also filmed the most cherished holiday film ever made! James Stewart plays a small town guy who’s put his own dreams on hold to help others, only to see his optimism eroded by greed of a privileged few. It takes an angel-in-training named Clarence to reveal what Bedford Falls would have become without his sacrifice and commitment. It’s the perfect time to treat yourself and the people you care about to a film that celebrates the inter-connectedness of us all…no matter where we were born. 129 min.
