It's a Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life was made in 1946 and was based on a short story called 'The Greatest Gift,' by Philip Van Doren Stern.

It stars James Stewart as a man about to commit suicide on Christmas Eve but he is prevented by a guardian angel played by Henry Travers.

Although it wasn't a hit when originally released, it has since become a classic and is often shown of television around christmas time.
