It’s a national icon. Personally, this is my mother-in-law’s favorite holiday movie. We watch it every year. She cries every year – and it’s basically the only time all year that she does. The four young ones who are the stars of the show meet for a reunion every year. Here’s their names:
Carol Coombs (Janie Bailey), Karolyn Grimes (Zuzu Bailey), Jimmy Hawkins (Tommy Bailey) and Jeanine Roose (young Violet Bick).
Karolyn Grimes, in an interview being asked, “What is it like to have been part of a Hollywood holiday movie celebrated nationally?” stated:
“Well, it\’s really a privilege to be a part of that. It\’s an honor to be in that movie because it means so much to people, not only in the United States but around the world. And it makes such a difference in people\’s lives. I feel like it\’s become a part of American history, certainly film history… I feel very privileged to be a part of that.– Karolyn Grimes
Paramount is releasing a digitally remastered version of It’s a Wonderful Life this season, in ultra-HD 4k from the original negatives. We aren’t affiliated with them, but because it’s a part of our family here at Strictly News, we thought you might like to throw it on the big screen this holiday and enjoy it with a sharper picture and clearer audio.
Local movie theatres (like the one I’m taking my Mother-In-Law to) also play it, so if you wanted a wholesome family outing, feel free to check out the theatres near you.
Merry Christmas Season. We’ll talk Tomorrow.
