In 1946, with World War II officially at an end, Hollywood was getting back to business as usual with filmmakers and actors alike coming out of their military service. For Frank Capra, this was the time to finally make a film he had in the works prior to the war. Enlisting Jimmy Stewart once again, he tells the story of George Bailey, a small town businessman whose impact on others would be examined on Christmas Eve. The result would be It's A Wonderful Life, a box office disappointment  that would eventually become a hallmark of the Holiday Season. But does the film deserve the blessings given to it or should we wish never existed? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster are on the case.

But does the original film (in its original format) stand the test of time or does it need a photon torpedo up the exhaust port? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and Special Guest Lauren of Legends of SHIELD Podcast root through the smoldering remains in a live event.
