It's A Wonderful Life

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

“It’s a great — really great — film, so densely well made that to watch any three minutes is to realize how paltry the vast majority of movies are by comparison.” — Richard T. Jameson

If you’ve only seen it in scratchy, fuzzy UHF television presentations — if you watch it once a year, every year — if you’ve never seen it before — or if you fall somewhere in-between — then you owe it to yourself, your kids, your parents, your grandkids, your grandparents, the cousins, and any other living human combination to see Frank Capra’s immortal classic on the big screen. Jimmy Stewart was born to play the role of George Bailey, the Everyman whose unflappable spirit (even in the face of the deepest despair) has been of quintessential importance to American popular culture for the last several decades. Having lost not one iota of its emotional power, It’s A Wonderful Life is an unmistakable treasure, and might just be the true meaning of Christmas. Dir. Frank Capra, 1946, 35mm, 130 min.

From Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast to Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, the bestselling author of Zombie Spaceship Wasteland chronicles his coming of age from fledgling stand-up at the Largo to self-assured sitcom actor.  Oswalt’s witty prose proves that funny is just as fit for the page as it is the stage.
