Thornton Wilder's play put to the screen, well almost. A laid back look at the lives, trials and tribulations of the citizens of a small New England town. Of course, the point is that each life tells a story. The acting seems a little wooden and most of the dialogue monotone. Still yet this is an oldie that will pull at your heart strings. You also examine how important it is to live your life everyday.
The cast includes William Holden, Martha Scott, Thomas Mitchell, Beulah Bondi and narrated by Frank Craven. Grab a cup of coffee and prop your feet up...and enjoy a classic.
