The life story of one man and how his life effects those of the people
around him. This type of film could become sick making but a wonderful
cast, a classic director and strong script mean that this film is pure
When originally released it was not a great success but has now come to be rated (rightly so) as one of the great films.
James Stewart possibly the greatest cinematic actor of all time gives a performance worthy of an Oscar but recieved no such award for this classic performance. Standing out in the cast that was put together took some doing as the performances from the top of the list to the bottom are exceptional.
If you only get the chance to see 1 film then this is it. No fancy special effects just a good plot, good acting and good directing.
This film should be screened regularly by the Samaritans as a way of inspiring people to go on with life.
