Publisher's Summary

Reprising his film role in this memorable classic James Stewart has a perfect life. A loving wife, Mary (Donna Reed), four young children, and his own business, which he inherited from his father. Facing a financial crisis one Christmas Eve he contemplates suicide.

This being Hollywood he is saved at the last moment by the intervention of his guardian angel who takes him on a tour of how the world would be without him. His friendly Main Street America town is sad, impoverished and bleak.

Convinced by this to return his guardian angel brings him back to the present and he finds the whole town has rallied round to save his business. A rightful American classic.

    "Whats not to like??"

    If you buy this, then you have no doubt seen the movie. This is an abbreviated (I think) version of the movie and its great. It should be mandatory to listen to or watch Its a Wonderful Life every Christmas, its that good!

    "Very good radio play"

    This is a radio play narrated by James Stewart and Donna Reed both of whom starred in the original movie. I really enjoyed it BUT the only complaint I have (and which is why I gave 4 stars not 5) is that it is abridged (based on the movie) and a lot of content is simply narrated by the Clarence character to move the story along. It is a quick way however to fit in It's a Wonderful Life in under an hour.
