'Well, Mr. Potter, In My Book He Died A Much Richer Man Than You'll Ever Be.'

Sixty three years ago tonight, George Bailey was at the end of his rope and was about to jump off of a bridge in Bedford Falls, New York. So began the beginning of the end of It's A Wonderful Life, a movie that I never tire of seeing this time of year.

Even when I was at my most cynical, It's A Wonderful Life was never corny. On one very lonely Christmas Eve, it helped me through a long night, while with every passing year its message continues to humble and inspire me.

If it's been a while since you've seen It's A Wonderful Life, check your TV listings or check it out from your local video store or Netflix. If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to do so.
