This is the
heart-warming saga of George Bailey, the 'everyman' from the small town of
Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been repeatedly
quashed by notions of family obligation and civic duty. It is Christmas Eve,
and George's guardian angel, Clarence, descends to save him from despair, and
to remind him (by showing him what the world would be like had he never been
born) that his life has been after all, a wonderful life. It's a Wonderful Life not only celebrates the season, it also
celebrates the American philosophy of life: that hard work, fair play, and the
love and support of family and community will be rewarded.
