Digital presentation - Capra's famous Christmas film about frustrated George Bailey (James Stewart) learning that his life in fact has meaning, will be over-shown on every TV and cable station in America during the Christmas season. This is a chance to see the film and have a conversation about why the film is so popular, whether the popularity is deserved or whether It's a Wonderful Life is another example of what was derisively called "Capra-corn." The film also stars Donna Reed, Henry Travers, Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell, Lionel Barrymore and Gloria Grahame.
