Timeless classic in both original black and white and colorized versions. Don't forget to watch the bonus features that cover bringing this film to the public - awesome!

A holiday classic, if you are ever to see it, go for this version, not the terrible remake!

I can't believe this is the first time I've seen this one. Adorable, but doesn't come close to Capra's "It's A Wonderful Life" in my book, though.
