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.
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.
