Frank Capra's It's a wonderful life

George Bailey is not having a good day. His life in the sleepy little town of Bedford Falls has been thrown off track, perhaps never to recover. His business has failed, he's wanted by the police, and he's had a fight with his beloved wife Mary. On this disastrous day, his responsibilities and frustrations overwhelm him, leading him to a bridge and serious contemplation of suicide. It's up to an angel named Clarence to convince George that his life has been one of worth and that it's still worth living. After taking a long look at George's life, the angel offers a portrait of what life in Bedford Falls would be like if George had never been born. This classic, sentimental favorite has become a Christmas tradition.

Meet John Doe

by:Capra, Frank, 1897-1991

To further his presidential aspirations, oil tycoon D.B. Norton buys a newspaper, renames it, and tells managing editor Connell to downsize. After being fired, cheeky reporter Ann Mitchell retaliates in her final story by creating John Doe, who writes a "Letter to the Editor," describing his disgust at the state of the world, capped by a threat to commit suicide on New Year's Eve in protest. John Doe's story causes an instant media sensation, so Ann finds a bum to "play" him. She selects former minor league ballplayer turned hobo Long John Willoughby, who goes along with the scheme. Soon he's making motivational speeches on the radio, and becoming a popular national figure, while corporate misbehavior, consumerism, and the attempted subversion of the resultant popular movement follow. Can Willoughby become the figure of integrity and principle he had only pretended to be? Even if it means sacrificing himself so that the real John Doe's can be saved?
