The Capra film was a popular Christmas saga that is essentially an inversion of the Scrooge plot. Capra takes some liberties, instead of being Smug, the businessman, a b…anker, is contemplating suicide in the Yule tide, is visited by angels rather than ghosts of the tenses of time, but there is much similarity. very little juvenile appeal. Most people who have analyzed both see (wonderful Life) as a modernized Scrooge.What the devils is attractive about human foibles, anyhow?
I can't remember all of them myself but I do know Jimmy Stewart is the main character and wishes because his life is so full of agony and out of control that he is no longer h…ere. Mary is his wife, Little Zulu is the daughter that gets a cold right before Christmas. Mr. Potter is the evil banker, there is Clarence the angel, and Bert the police officer, tony the bar tender...... I was trying to remember who brought Jimmy and his love Mary back to there house on there wedding night, but I think it was Bert the policeman. Awesome movie, I watch it every year at Christmas, except this past one......
Donna Reed played Mary Hatch Bailey
James Stuart and Donna Reed. :) *Sources http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038650/
The movie was released in 1946
The 2000 movie Wonder Boys had several great stars, such as Michael Douglas, Robert Downey Jr., Tobey MacGuire and Frances McDormand.
No, Shirley Temple was never in this movie.
The setting was in a small town called Bedford Falls during the Christmas Holidays.
The mean banker in the movie is Mr. Potter. He is brilliantly portrayed by Lionel Barrymore.
It is essentially a reverse- take-off on the Scrooge theme- both involve businessmen- in (Life)- a banker, and in Scrooge a loan-shark or pawnbroker- both have morbid sub-them…es- and occur in the Christmas Season.l There are those who argue that ( It"s a wonderful life) is in a sense an inverse of Scrooge- as instead of prodding his conscience- as the ghosts do in ( A Christmas Carol)- they ( called Angels in Wonderful Life)- dissuade the banker from taking his own life- It"s a silly story- and I don"t llike it.
A housing development.
