An angel is sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed.
The only film in history to originate from a greeting card.
Mr. Emil Gower:
I owe everything to George Bailey. Help him, dear Father.
Giuseppe Martini: Joseph, Jesus and Mary. Help my friend, Mr. Bailey.
Ma Bailey: Help my son, George, tonight.
Bert: He never thinks about himself, God, that's why he's in trouble.
Ernie Bishop: George is a good guy. Give him a break, God.
When George is on the bridge, the snow and ice pattern on his left coat shoulder is the same as it was when he was in Potter's office, even though he was in the bar afterward.
A ringing facsimile of the Liberty Bell (without the crack) forms the backdrop for the studio logo, which is Liberty Films, and the opening credits are in a scrapbook with Christmas decorations. The bell reappears before the end credits, and the end credits have a Christmas card picture as a backdrop.
