Description

SUNDAY DECEMBER 22 A Christmas perennial, Frank Capra’s classic stars Jimmy Stewart as a family man at the end of his rope who is shown by a friendly angel what life would be like without him. Sentimental in the best sense, with a deep strain of melancholy coursing through it, Stewart gives one of his finest performances. After decades of shabby public domain prints in circulation, Paramount Pictures has restored the film to its pristine grandeur from the best surviving elements. Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore and Henry Travers co-star. (1946, 130 min, 4K DCP)
