It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

100EPISODE # 39:  Do you love IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE as much as we do?  Michael Wright, CEO of Amblin Partners and former president and head of programming for TCM (Turner Classic Movies), is our “Audience of One” as James and Lara discuss this beloved Christmas classic. But how did a film with some very dark themes end up as a holiday favorite? Is it true that Cary Grant almost played George? Why is Jimmy Stewart sweating throughout the film? And what about that $50 bet between Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore that involved a cow? Join us and go deeper with IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE and its timeless message that no man who has friends is a failure, life is a gift, and we all have an impact on those around us.
