    This is a wonderful post, Barb! (pun intended). I had never seen this movie until I took a film class in college, and we spent an entire quarter on the works of Jimmy Stewart. Made me really appreciate the depth and range of this exceptional actor -- how I do love Jimmy Stewart! One of the highlights of my life is that I got to meet him and ride with him in a car (en route to an awards ceremony for him) for two and a half hours. Boyoboy, was I starstruck! Anyway, "Wonderful Life" is a family tradition for us, too, and now I HAVE TO get that DVD you mentioned! Thanks for your inspiring post!


    Agreed. Great movie!! FYI- I think channel 13 was (is) PBS. Check for free X-Mas movies and tv shows. It's a great resource especially during the holidays (when all we want to do is snuggle and watch our fav childhood movies). Happy Holidays!

    Rebecca, thanks for stopping by! OMG, how lucky you were to get to spend that much time with Jimmy Stewart! I think I would have just melted into the seat or passed out from terminal gushing. I'll be thinking of you when I watch IAWL this year!! Happy, Happy holidays!!


    I love this movie. I do like "A Christmas Story", but I agree it's in a totally different category. :)


    Great post! And great movie! I've watched it every year since I was in college. And absolute must during the holiday season.

    BTW, I've never seen A Christmas Story.
