I accidently came across this movie while surfing the satellite channels
other day (in England the movie was called Narrow Escape) I wasn't going
watch it but nothing else was playing at 7am so I settled down to watch. I
was glad that I did. I'm a bit of a sucker for a soppy tear-jerker
(especially about kids)and I thought that some of the performances would
have done justice to a big budget blockbuster.
Of course Hollywood dressed up the truth a bit and added a bit more sap
was necessary, but the story shone out and I was deeply touched by it.
So touched in fact that I began to search the internet for details on the ship, the men and young Danny. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't find any sites with a reference to them. I hope someone rectifies that situation soon.
I loved the movie
I first watched this film as a young boy and fell in love with it straight
away. I think that part of it's enduring appeal is that all audiences young
and old can relate to this movie, I introduced my daughter to it last
christmas and I look forward to sitting down to watch it this year with my
O.K as you grow older you realise that some of the dialogue is perhaps a little corny but there can be no denying the strength of the acting, especially Stewart who in my opinion gives the performance of his life.
Some scenes take your breath away especially the bridge scene when George Bailey begs for his life back when the harsh wind dies away and snow starts to fall again, pure brilliance!
The ending always makes me fill up.
I don't think a movie as good as this will be ever made again
