Hollywood film and talk

Friday, Dec. 15, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., Tom Rosa will show and discuss the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Rosa, a retired art teacher, is an expert on old Hollywood movies.

This 1946 American Christmas fantasy drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra is based on the short story “The Greatest Gift,” written by Philip Van Doren Stern in 1939. The film is among the most popular in American cinema and has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season.

The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born.

Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.
