I Remember This!
26 December 2002 | by (Orange County, California) – See all my reviews

Always a fan of "It's a Wonderful Life," I remember stumbling across this a few years ago. It was a well-done rendition of the classic, presented in radio style. In other words, it wasn't acted out visually, but rather was performed as though it was hitting the air waves for Christmas 1947. Very cool! The performances were great, too. Of course, Bill Pullman isn't James Stewart, but who is? No one can compare to Jimmy in the role of George Bailey, but Pullman does a decent job. If only there were some way to purchase the show on CD! It's like something you'd see advertised on public television, and the recording would be perfect to stick in the car during the holidays. Catch it if you can!!!
