I once went to Seneca Falls and found a newspaper with a bunch of money in it. I didn't tell anyone, though.

Pfft, George Bailey was a subprime lender. How much did it cost to bail him out?

A big part of the film’s enduring appeal is its joyous closing scenes in which townspeople rally behind Jimmy Stewart’s character

UM, HOLD IT. That scene was recut by studio bigwigs because they didn't feel the original ending was upbeat enough. Capra himself, according to his son, felt that this interference ruined the film's appeal, and the director fell into a serious depression afterwards.

It is NOT really indicative of the Capra touch. Capra had more restraint than Wonderful Life would have you believe.

Rush Limbaugh would make a good Potter considering how much his hate has made him rich. That's America today, certainly not pulling itself together anymore. There's no money in it. Capra wouldn't recognize it any more

I've been to Rochester. I've been to Elmira. All things considered, I'd rather be in Tokyo.
