Since I was a young child, each year my family has watched "It's A Wonderful Life" starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed.
In the early years, we had to watch whenever one of the 3 networks aired the movie. My sister would scan the weekly newpapers' TV Guide each year, beginning around Thanksgiving, looking for when the movie would air... we didn't want to miss it!
In later years, we bought VCR tapes so we could watch whenever we wanted to. Now... a nice DVD spins the original black and white version in my player every year... and soon... a Blue Ray version will be my own!
