Is anyone more the Everyman of America than George Bailey?

I did not grow up with this American classic. My wife (who went to college in Jimmy Stewart’s hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania) introduced it to me.

Thanks Hon.

It’s A Wonderful Life was released in 1946 and over time has made its way into our collective hearts. Not only through the great performance of the actors and director, but through its writing.

In this shot George is explaining that he doesn’t need a suitcase big enough for one night, he needs one for a thousand and one nights.

The spirit of adventure. Thank you Jimmy Stewart.

I work daily at becoming a better husband, father, educator, and artist.
Most days I get at least 3 out of 4.
But as Jimmy Cliff says:“You must try,try and try, try and try, you’ll succeed at last”

Drop me a line, leave a comment, and let’s face it… purchase the item on this page.

  • I agree totally. I can’t even begin to count the number of times throughout the year that I end up thinking about it.
