Wonderful, beautiful, fantastic movie. Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed are great. Watch it every year. Love it!
years ago when Saturday Night Live was still funny, they presented - in black & white - the alternate ending that ended up on the cutting room floor. They replicated the final scene in the Bailey’s house when all of his friends and neighbors were coming in to contribute money to help George in his hour of need. In the midst of all the joy and happiness, Mr. Potter’s flunky wheels the warped, frustrated old man into the room. The crowd falls silent as Mr Potter says whatever it is he said...when he finished, there’s a moment of stunned silence, then the crowd dumps Potter from his chair and beats the hell out him..
