It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) – 4K Review

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season of 2020 is right around the corner. Soon, television screens will be alight with familiar and nostalgic images that dwell on the premise of good cheer, and peace to all, and a solid cup of eggnog. There are a few musts for me over the holiday seasons,…

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) – Frank Capra

DK Canada brings me this Frank Capra classic from its What Else to Watch list following its recommendation of It’s A Wonderful Life. THIS movie makes me regret the fact that schools, as a rule, no longer have civics classes. It needs to be seen, as it shows the good and the bad of democracy,…

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) – Frank Capra

Nick (William Powell) and Nora Charles (Myrna Loy) are a highly enjoyable couple with a fun dog named Asta,…

The Strong Man (1926) – Frank Capra

  The Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book recommended a couple of titles to go along with The General, I’ve already seen one of them and reviewed it, Safety Last, so I settled in for the next one, this little gem from Frank Capra and starring Harry Langdon. Langdon stars as Paul Bergot,…
