It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

"I wish I had a million dollars... Hot dog!"

"Buffalo gals won't you come out tonight..."

"She lights up like a firefly whenever you're around."

"A toast! A toast! A toast to Mama Dollar and to Papa Dollar, and if you want to keep this old Building and Loan in business, you better have a family real quick."

"George Bailey lassos stork!"
"What're'ya... You mean you're... What is it, a boy or a girl?"

"...and are the local yokels making with those David and Goliath jokes..."

"Well, you look about the kind of angel I'd get. Sort of a fallen angel, aren't you? What happened to your wings?"

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"

"Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!"

"Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings."

"Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends."

...and of course the original Ernie and Bert. Four stars. Whether I see it next December or not, of course I will see it again.

(Yes, I know the pictures aren't all from the same scene as the quote... It's hard to find exactly what you want out there...)

This is one of my favorite movies ever (It's a Wonderful Life) I can't think of a movie Jimmy Stewart played in that I didn't like. Though not everyone has great things to say about Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

I was surprised to see Sheldon Leonard (who plays Nick from Martini's Bar) in the movie Jim and I just reviewed--To Have and Have Not

We're just getting started, (, but who doesn't love a classic?

I want to start with thanking for a great blog.

I am launching a new new service, called Linqers, that enables people to
link in motion picture - nevermore do you have to search on the Internet for
information about which movie the actor starred last time! Linqers will change the way people watch movies.

We are in our start-up phase and need blogs to co-operate with and hope
that you are the one that will follow us on the journey. We are not asking
for any money, just that you spread the word about us and we will make
sure you are linked in every movie that is played with Linqers.

Please look at our website: for more information or just
email me!

I am hoping to hear from you again!

Best Regards
