    Hollywood's best-loved star teams up with America's favourite directors to create one of the world's most popular films.

    It's A Wonderful Life is the ultimate 'feel-good' film. Starring the unforgettable James Stewart as George Bailey, the man who receives the greatest Christmas gift of all. A superb ensemble cast includes Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore, this high-spirited Christmas tale is directed by the immortal Frank Capra and ranks as an all-time favourite of fans and critics alike.

    It's A Wonderful Life began as a short Christmas tale called 'The Greatest Gift'. The premise was simple: A regretful man sees what would have become of his family and friends if he had never lived. Yet various writers struggled to balance the story's pathos and humour.

    Only Capra's painstaking polishing made the script filmable, with enriched characters and plot adding hugely to its depth and drama. When James Stewart first read the script, he said "This is it! When do we start?"
