Watching that movie Christmas Eve night has been a tradition for years, and I was surprised to find it was the 30th anniversary of the release of the film this year.

I knew what the title referred to right off. Great movie!
They made a sequel a year or so ago. On it's own, it was an ok movie, but it didn't hold a candle to the original.

Here's a link to the book that the movie was based on: http://www.amazon.com/In-God-We-Trus.../dp/0385021747

A classic. The Christmas part is only a small piece

Longtime Jean Shepherd fan here. There are wonderful bits of his WOR radio show scattered all over the internets.

He's great. Did you ever hear the show he did where he talked over the Raymond Scott tune? It was great.

We just watched "Its a Wonderful Life" from beginning to end... man does that movie go on and on and really reach for the heart strings.

I've known the story for as long as I can remember, but didn't recall all those details... wow.

I don't remember that one, but he used a couple of Raymond Scott pieces: In An Eighteenth Century Drawing Room and The Happy Whistler.
There are samples from both here: http://www.flicklives.com/index.php?pg=201

I confess to hating "Its a Wonderful Life". Depressing from beginning to end. When George Bailey smashes the model of the bridge he built, it's the official end to his hopes & dreams. He'll be stuck in Bedford Falls forever.

Pottersville looked like a fun place to live. No black folk in Bedford Falls, they lived in Pottersville.

Nick over at Nick's Place had a lot more pizazz than he did at Martini's.
Still, if I was to characterize the town I live in, Pottersville is a lot closer than Bedford Falls. And what do you get when every town is Pottersville?
