Saturday night (Dec. 11) on NBC is the annual broadcast of “Wonderful Life.” If you’ve never seen it (or if you’ve seen bits and pieces and think it’s a cliche or a joke), you really should give it a chance. It’s funny, it’s sad and it’s incredibly uplifting.
In honor of the broadcast, we’ve included two of our favorite scenes here. Our very favorite of the whole movie is the phone scene between George (Jimmy Stewart) and Mary (Donna Reed). Below is another scene that’s always kind of forgotten about when the movie is discussed. It’s a run on the Bailey Building and Loan, but George talks everybody down and gets them to help each other out.
Happy “It’s a Wonderful Life” night!
