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 copy of the "Bedford Falls Sentinel" that George shows to cab driver Ernie with the headline "President Decorates Harry Bailey" is undated.
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 comes back to Gower's drugstore and faces Gower on the telephone, he's got his hand to his hair, but in the following shot he hasn't.
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.
