December's installment of our Saturday Matinee series features It's a Wonderful Life, Frank Capra's holiday classic starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. Stewart's George Bailey is the heart and soul of small-town Bedford Falls, but a lifetime of bitter struggles against the miserly Mr. Potter have worn him down. Enter Clarence, a kindly angel who shows George how different life would be without him.
