America’s Favorite Holiday Movie:
A Look Inside It’s a Wonderful Life

Monday, December 27, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Voted the most inspirational movie ever made by the American Film Institute, Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life has been a beloved Christmas classic for many generations. Yet when the film was released in 1946, it was a box-office flop—until it was rediscovered through endless airings on local TV stations beginning in the 1970s and on annual Christmas eve broadcasts on NBC starting in 1992. Together we’ll examine the fascinating story of It’s a Wonderful Life, looking at the challenges of how it was made, what it says about the problems of post-war America, and how it became the ultimate portrayal of holiday goodwill and cheer. Led by Brian Rose, retired professor of Communications and Media Studies, Fordham University
