What can we say about It’s a Wonderful Life that hasn’t been said a thousand times before? One of the most popular movies of all time (though it wasn’t a hit when it was first released), this is a film that has come to represent all the hope, good will, and sentiment that define the holiday season. Please join us in rooting for Jimmy Stewart, Clarence the Angel, and all his friends as they discover that each of us, in our own way, is a vital part of the world, illustrating that John Donne was right in saying “each man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. Therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls – it tolls for thee.” Attaboy, Clarence! (Bill Roth)
