Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life" has been revered as required holiday viewing since it's premiere in 1946. Deeply conflicted, George Bailey attempts to leave his life and family behind on Christmas Eve and is met instead by Clarence, his guardian angel. Clarence leads George on a journey where he is able to re-examine his community and his family had he "never been born." George learns that his relationships, and not his finances, are what make him "richest man in town." Make sure to see number 11 on AFI's Top 100 List!
