It's A Wonderful Life (1946)

Mary Hatch (Donna Reed), George Bailey (James Stewart), and Zuzu Bailey (Karolyn Grimes)

Reason for Watching:
Most popular movie on JustWatch (with respect to my choice of filters on ratings and platforms). Also I've never seen it before.

I'm a little surprised that this is the first time I've seen the film. In fact, I don't think I've even seen bits and parts of it. However, I am familiar with the quote at the end ("[...] every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings").

George and Clarence (Henry Travers)

On a different topic, I was looking for screenshots and came across screenshots of hte colorized version of the movie. It was very strange to see them.
Instant Comments: Oh wow. So he did good. Without the context of his boss confirming the mistake, it could have been that the use was intended.
Hehe. Violet's still attracted to George


"Hey this is my dance." "Why don't you stop annoying people."
Smile. "Get out of the...oh well."
Hahaha. "Youth is wasted on the wrong people."
Wow. Gave up his opportunity... Considering the movie Soul, it's not terrible considering...


What an unfortunate set of events... His uncle loses the $8000. It falls into the hands of Potter. A rumour about him and Violent... Just ridiculous. And to arguably the nicest man in town.
Hehe. George catches on too slow. (doesn't understand why Mr. Gower is in such bad shape)
Makes the cash register ring several times. "I'm giving out wings."

Uncle Billy (Thomas Mitchell) and George

"You see George, you really had a wonderful life."
Hehe as he's so happy to see his kids... I can't help but wonder what Nicolas Cage would have been like in this role.
As people are coming in with the money, I'm getting teary eyed. So beautiful.
I didn't understand what the paper being ripped up was for. Apparently it was the Sheriff with a warrant for George's arrest (and he ripped up the warrant)

George and Violet (Gloria Grahame)

"Look, Daddy! Teacher says every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings."
