It’s a Wonderful Life

My daughter Isabella is my guest on this show :) It is highly rare that a film touches so many lives over the course of so many generations. We’ve had plenty of movies about the great depression and the surrounding hard time periods. None of them portray such stirring and memorable images as “It’s a Wonderful Life.” (Please note my review contains spoilers)
