The Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” celebrates brining holiday cheer to families for 70 years

If the name George Bailey doesn’t “ring a bell,” there’s no better time to watch the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

The movie, celebrating its 70th Anniversary on Christmas Day, stars iconic actor Jimmy Stewart as Peter Bailey.

Bailey feels stuck in his hometown after sacrificing his dream to explore the world to take on the responsibility of the family business, the “old Building and Loans” company.

He becomes fed up with his life after a series of bad luck and wishes he was never born.

But, it’s not all bad! Or else, “It’s a Wonderful Life” wouldn’t have been ranked the No. 1 Most Inspirational Movie of All Time by the American Film Institute in 2006.

You will have to watch the film to see how Bailey realizes the value of his “wonderful life” and the life-changing impact he had on those around him!

For those in the Los Angeles area, the San Pedro Film Festival will be starting a new holiday tradition with the screening of “It’s a Wonderful Life” at the Warner Grand Theatre on December 23 starting at 7 p.m.
