Watch: It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
There are many good Christmas movies, but only few are as great as Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life. Some of my earliest Christmas memories include this movie. For years I was convinced that Santa wouldn't come until Jimmy Stewart realized what a lucky man he really was, and even though I know every line by heart I still make sure to watch it at least once every year. And unlike other “classics“ like Christmas Vacation or Home Alone, it isn't something that I play in the background while trimming the tree, no, this one always means full on "phone off, lights out, movie night".
And Capra's masterpiece also happens to be the first film to use a special type of foam instead of white cornflakes to make it snow in Hollywood. That's petty cool, right?
Do you have that one special Christmas movie you make sure to watch every year? Let me know, comment below!
