It's a Wonderful Life: The Making of a Holiday Classic

Sunday, December 2, 2018

Did you know Cary Grant was supposed to star in It's a Wonderful Life? That the gym-floor-turned-swimming-pool was real? That the movie bombed at the box office? Even if you've seen the holiday classic a hundred times, you'll have fun learning about the making of the movie with popular historian Leslie Goddard. Enjoy rare behind-the-scenes photographs and find out how the script evolved, how the cast was chosen, and many technical challenges that were overcome.
