It’s a Wonderful Life
by James W. Rodgers
Based on the film by Frank Capra and the story by Philip Van Doren Stern.
George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, has had his dreams of escape and adventure repeatedly quashed by family obligations and civic duty. On Christmas Eve, George’s guardian angel Clarence descends to save him from despair, and to remind him that his life has been pretty wonderful after all. It’s a Wonderful Life celebrates the season, and it also celebrates a very American philosophy of life: that hard work, fair play, and the love and support of family and community will be rewarded.
