Brief Synopsis – A desperate man on the verge of suicide is giving the chance to see what the world would be like if he never existed.

My Take on it – I recently won a poll and was the guest host on the MOTM Holiday Edition of the LAMBCAST and spent almost two hours discussing this movie in full detail with other members of the LAMB.

Listen here to my lively chronological conversation with Richard, Todd, Rachel and James.

Thanks to the other guests and Richard for dealing with my shenanigans and thanks to all the voters who helped me win this coveted honor.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – While filming the scene in which George prays in the bar, James Stewart was so overcome that he began to sob. Frank Capra later re-framed and blew up the shot because he wanted to catch that expression on Stewart’s face. This is why the shot looks so grainy compared with the rest of the film. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (10/10) (no change from original review)
