"It's a Wonderful Life" - a communist film?
 
It seems the paranoia of the US Government in the 40's knew no bounds.

It's a classic film that conveys the message that no one is insignificant, and friends and family are more important than money. It was, therefore, deemed anti capitalist. In the eyes of the US government, everyone was either capitalist or communist, so, therefore, the film was considered communist..

Wow Im glad they let it go anyway,thats probably my favourite christmas movie!!!

Took me forever to get a good 1981 release on VHS (The nicest one)

I didnt realise when they originally released this,the part with the guy throwing stuff in a trash can wasnt there! (It was on fire) -- And also the original which mine is was on 2 different reels.... During the movie when George comes to his new house,they quickly switch to the other reel..... (The 1981 release is a straight analogue transfer and I have been wanting one like that for along time)

Ya it makes me happy to know Paul has had this site as many years as he has :)

I just lost another VBB site (The admin got tired of it and closed it (Another member attacked someone I invited and that made him mad,etc...))


I was thinking of this movie and did a search for it and found 1 thread and the links are still valid so I added a reply :)
