  1. BRAVO! Listened to this over the weekend. Very enjoyable.

    PS Donna Reed was hella hot!

    Great show about a great, timeless movie.

    One of those classics that lives up to its reputation.
    I never tire of watching it, probably because of Jimmy Stewart’s and Donna Reed’s heart-reaching performances.

    This movie is one reason I dislike BttF2′s bleak second-act. This movie did the what-if non-existence scenario much more successfully, imho.
    While Marty’s adventures gained momentum when back-back in 1955, IaWL never loses steam and, while taking audiences to surprisingly dark depths of despair, snaps back with one of the warmest endings of any movies I ever saw.

    This movie kinda played tricks on me in remembering the storyline. Clarence takes a while to arrive, the characters and romance are truly well developped and makes the dark ‘fantasy’ sequence all the more chilling.
    Makes anyone appreciate their lives, I’d bet.

    This darkness, though, is why I shy away from Meet John Doe, another study of character and depression.
    Capra did that all too well!

    Anyway, great podcast. Enjoyed hearing Doug’s Also-Ran, taking us back to retro-prime years of cinema.

    Happy Holidays!

    I was able to listen to it while walking the dog this weekend. I can admit I’ve never seen its a wonderful life in its entirety but plan to do so very soon. Another #1 podcast!
