It just isn’t a holiday season without a viewing of the classic “It’s A Wonderful Life”. NBC continues the tradition this year with two opportunities for viewers to catch the Jimmy Stewart film. The film will air Friday, December 20th at 8pm and Tuesday, December 24th at 8pm. That means there are no regrets about missing the film on Friday night. In case you’ve never seen the film before here is a quick synopsis of the plot from Wikipedia.
The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born.
Another by-product of the classic film is the great SNL version of the lost ending to the story.
