It’s a Wonderful Life
They say familiarity breeds contempt. By that rule, we should all loathe It’s a Wonderful Life. And yet nothing could be further from the truth. Capra’s masterpiece—the triumph of the common man, the salvation of George Bailey—stands as one of the most beloved films of all time. Now, with this beautiful edition of the original screenplay, It’s a Wonderful Life can be enjoyed every day of the Christmas season and any time of the year. With the addition of an Introduction by Scott W. Thompson, this book is the perfect gift for any fan of Capra, It’s a Wonderful Life, or great cinema.
Frank Capra (1897–1991) was an Italian-American film director, producer and writer. Capra was nominated six times for the Academy Award for Best Director, winning thrice (It Happened One Night, in 1934; Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, in 1936; and You Can’t Take It with You, in 1938). A Roman Catholic, Capra placed charity and human freedom and dignity at the heart of his craft. In 2006, The American Film Institute recognized his It’s a Wonderful Life as the eleventh best film in American cinema.
