Even Frank Capra – who had a habit of making classics – would have been surprised at just how loved his 1946 Christmas still is, seven decades after it first conquered the world. Reminding us all that the only presents that truly matter at this time of year is being presentIt’s A Wonderful Life taps into the very notion of home, of belonging, and of recognising the value of happiness rather than the price.

It’s a message that’s helped in no small part by Capra’s masterful direction, a smart script, and an incredible cast – led, of course, by one of the big screen’s true all-time greatsJames Stewart. The perfect film to round-out these Christmas classics, if you’re not blubbing by the end of It’s A Wonderful Life, well, later on, you might just be visited by three spirits. You heartless swine.
