The Making of "It's a Wonderful Life"

2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Event Details

It’s a Wonderful Life is one of the most popular motion pictures ever made. James Stewart and Frank Capra proclaimed this classic to be their personal favorite. The charming, and at times harrowing, story of George Bailey and his life-altering tribulations in Bedford Falls are well known.  This presentation will explore: Is it true the original story began as a Christmas card? Who were the original stars considered for the roles? Why was James Stewart initially reluctant to portray George Bailey? What were the circumstances that turned an obscure lost film into a national treasure? We will examine the complex backstory of how It’s a Wonderful Life came to fruition. Presented via Zoom by Sal St. George.

Please register in advance. You will receive the Zoom link, meeting and passcode prior to the event.
