It’s a Wonderful Life was released on December 20, 1946. It’s a Wonderful Life is an American Christmas fantasy drama film. It is the poster child for the initially unsuccessful endeavor which becomes a universally-acclaimed classic. Many say it is due to the fact that it was put into the public domain, thereby achieving wide exposure and eventually the honor it deserved.
The film is the story of a man who has given up his dreams to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel who shows him all the lives he has touched and how different life would be if he had never been born.
