I is for It's A Wonderful Life

It's A Wonderful Life is currently #6 on my flickchart list.

Growing up, mine was not a terribly sentimental family.  We loved each other and I felt loved.  However, I battled some minor teen angst (like we all do) and there have been a few moments in my life where I had some real doubts about everything.

I discovered this movie on my own at the perfect time.  I think it does have some unfair labels attached to it.  It REALLY isn't a Christmas movie.  It really isn't as cloying or simple as some might intimate.

I am not sure how I would articulate what the movie means to me.  I keep typing something and deleting it.  Suffice it to say, I think it resonates so strongly for me because I, too, want to make a difference.  I want everything the movie offers in my own life.   

And I think the scene between George and Mary while on the phone with Sam is one of the most passionate,  explosive, romantic scenes I have ever seen.


I am using my flickchart list and blogging about the highest ranked movie for each letter of the alphabet.

  1. I grew up with it on TV, like a lot of people. It's still incredibly special.

    1. I'm okay with it during the does help retain its special-ness...once a year viewing!

  2. Funny what you grow up with - It's a Wonderful Life never did much for me. But White Christmas? Now that's a holiday movie!

    1. And while "White Christmas" takes place here in Vermont, I have never seen that one!!!

      And "White Christmas" was the number one movie the year it was released...number two was "Caine Mutiny" letter C!!

      Coincidences?? Yes.

  3. can you believe I've never seen it?


Why, hello there!
