Description: How would the world be different if you weren't in it? That's the question posed by this, perhaps the most beloved of all Christmas films. James Stewart plays George Bailey, a good man in desperate straits, and Henry Travers is his guardian angel, Clarence. It's every bit as touching and warm now as it was on the day it was released. Directed by Frank Capra. 1946. 130 mins. The classic - not rated because it doesn't need to be!
