It is a wonderful film

It's A Wonderful Life (1946) began as a short story called "The Greatest Gift". Philip Van Doren Stern writer could sell it to a publisher, he sent the story as a long Christmas card to friends. His agent subsequently sold the fable to images, where it went through several transformations RKO. In a convincing version of a losing political candidate, suicidal thoughts, only an angel to him to stay and do good works. Finally fell into the hands of the DirectorFrank Capra who cried when he read it, said it was the story he had long searched for his whole life, and it bought its first project for his new production company, Liberty Films are.

To play the unassuming savings and loan clerk, Capra wanted Jimmy Stewart who he previously worked with you had in your Can not Take It With You (1938) and Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939). But back from the Second World War, which was 37 years old Stewart is no longer the easy going man, he had liverwas in the thirties. The former Oscar winner for The Philadelphia Story (1940) had a man in bomb attacks in the European theater of war resulted in severe B-24s to maneuver. The loud engines damaged his hearing, to be welcomed in later years the people if the people he would and he would not respond, some would mistake his deafness for a cold personality. He was uncertain after five years away from the screen when he wanted to be in the movies. Sometimes, the profession seemed tohumiliating. In 1943, when Stewart had tried to stay in the best hotel in Madrid, he was gone because he was an actor on. He went back into the Air Force Base, got his colonel's uniform and then they let him in.

When he returned to Southern California in 1945, Stewart took things easy. He refused to sign it again with his old studio MGM, despite tearful requests so from the hammy Louis B. Mayer to do. He was content to spend time with kite flying and building model planes with HenryFonda. When Capra to make his pitch Stewart looked bored, came out of it, what to lose the director, the confidence. "Well Jim, it will be a savings and loan clerk to commit suicide's. There is an angel named Clarence who shows him what life would have been him … aw forget it's a stupid idea without the . Capra turned out if Stewart's hand on his shoulder. "Frank, if you want me, I'm your man." At least that's how the film tells journalists it.

Stewartwas morose and insecure as filming began. Then he went off to serve, Hollywood had found new leading men like Kirk Douglas and Gregory Peck, who was seven years younger than him. Some scenes for the now graying actor called still be in high school. He felt ridiculous, and as plastic surgery. But he was strongly influenced by his co-star Donna Reed who encouraged him helped while. In the romantic scene where George (Stewart) and Mary (Reed) declared their love for each other,Capra joked that Stewart so nervous he wrapped a phone chord around her book, that he had not run away. James had been restricted by the film's villain Lionel Barrymore, the wheelchair because of crippling arthritis helped. "Cheer up son, I want you. Do not you know you make people happier than a movie star than you ever shoot at them in a plane."

In the 1930s, Capra worked at Columbia Pictures had, which was ruled by the autocratic Harry Cohn, the commonest long as theMan in Hollywood. The Mogul kept the entire studio tapped a huge portrait of Mussolini displayed in his office, and used an electrified chair to give unsuspecting victims of sudden jolts. Capra had once sat was a shock and anger smashed the chair to bits. When the shooting began, the A's Wonderful Life, Capra was happy to be free of Cohn, but nervous. Now his own money was part of the investment. Known to work for making movie sets fun places, he was at firstgrumpy and irritable with his cast and crew. The shooting has not help a snowy Christmas movie in over a hundred degree heat in Encino morality. Many of the tightening force is powerless actors. But there were nice moments. One scene required Mary to throw a stone through the window an old manor house and do something. Capra had a marksman ready behind the camera, but to his delight Reed smashed the glass on her own. She turned to him and said: "Why so surprised Do not you think an Iowa farm girl wouldKnow how to play baseball? "

As the shoot progressed Capra back his confidence. He scorned special effects when Clarence Oddbody the angel (Henry Travers) has its magic, my face by telling his actors. The director began to believe he made the greatest film of all time. When his mood brightened the Company enjoyed picnics and singing on the set, the hallmarks of Capra's earlier films were.

Too dark, the country wanted comedy like Dean Martinand Jerry Lewis. Too dated, Wonderful Life came down like a depression film rather than a post-war film. For whatever reason the three million-dollar production against their money back. Capra chose to fold his tent shortly after the film's release Liberty Films, "The fastest way to go broke a man ever devised." Stewart panic. The ex-war hero got a call from his agent. "Donna Reed loved working with you. If you want to do it again." "No way. The girl isbewitched. "June Allyson became his leading lady of choice playing his wife five times. Decades later he would praise the performance of a confused Donna Reed for making Wonderful Life great." My God, "she told her friends." He did not say for sure 't that when it came out. "

Years passed. From that point on Capra not willing to establish what risk his own money or work for someone else, very few films. Stewart decided to present a stronger image on the screen. He refused to play in war moviessaid they were unrealistic, choosing instead hard and brittle as Western The Man From Laramie (1954), which helped make him rich and surpass John Wayne as the nation's number one box office star. Reed back her career by winning an Academy Award for playing a prostitute in From Here To Eternity (1953) and then became one of television most healthy mothers. And It's A Wonderful Life fell into the public domain in 1973, renewed, because no one is protected by copyright. The film has been forgottenrepeated on almost every cable-TV channel showed a large number of spectators was at length, and a perennial Christmas Classic.
