Sordid Cinema Podcast #563: Cynicism Can’t Keep It’s a Wonderful Life Down

It’s a Wonderful Life Podcast Review

Once a staple of holiday programming, Frank Capra’s 1946 masterpiece It’s a Wonderful Life may not be as widely broadcast, but it nevertheless still deserves to be seen by as many as possible. An inspiring story that showcases an inspired performance from star Jimmy Stewart, this tale of a man driven to the brink of suicide who is given a second chance at life remains powerful and effective to this day. What better way for the Sordid Cinema Podcast to kick off the holiday season than by re-taking the plunge ourselves into the world of a disappointed dreamer called George Bailey, the miserly Mr. Potter, and a doddering guardian angel named Clarence.

Rick and Patrick’s trip through the storybook town of Bedford Falls includes talk of a near-fatal poisoning by a druggist, a Depression-era run on the banks, theft of $8000 that could lead to embezzlement charges, loss of hearing, a theory about a possible curse by a marriage-seeking teenager, a supremely talented crow, and discussions of just how many strip clubs a small town needs. Feeling the holiday spirit yet? Find out why the guys believe the notoriously sentimental ending works perfectly, count the references to Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and It Happened One Night, and maybe even learn what a spinster is!

For all this and more, have a listen!
