As the 2020 holiday season dawns, Chet and Dee begin their discussion of classic Christmas movies with "It's a Wonderful Life." While every Christmas film tries to convince us to not be jerks, Frank Capra's 1946 masterpiece offers us one of the least jerky characters ever in George Bailey, a guy who's postponed most of his personal dreams for the sake of his family, neighbors and hometown. Unfortunately, a crisis has left George wondering if any of it mattered, and he's going to need an angel to help him regain his faith. Chet and Dee talk about Capra saw the world and why they love his film, even if they read it a little differently than he did.
