It’s a Wonderful Life at the Grand Illusion

This Christmas a venerable Seattle tradition continues as the Grand Illusion plays, on 35 millimeter film and for the next three weeks, Frank Capra’s greatest film, the grim, bleak, heart-warming holiday classic from 1946. James Stewart plays a suicidal banker reliving the agonies of his small town, small-time life of thwarted dreams with the help of a bumbling guardian angel. Donna Reed plays the gorgeous girl next door for whom he lassos not the moon but a mortgage and a passel of toothless moochers. As densely-packed with post-war anxiety and shadowy fears as any film noir, it’s desperately cheerful.
