For almost seventy years, people the world over have fallen in love
with Frank Capra's classic Christmas film It's a Wonderful Life.
But few of those fans know that Capra's film was inspired by a
short story by author Philip Van Doren Stern, which came to Stern
in a dream one night. Unable at first to find a publisher for his
heart-warming tale of a man named George Pratt who ponders suicide
until he receives an opportunity to see what the world would be
like without him, Stern ultimately published the story in a small
pamphlet and sent it out as his Christmas card for 1943. One of
those 200 copies found its way into the hands of David Hempstead, a
producer at RKO films, and the film that has become a cherished
holiday tradition for many was born. Now fans of It's a Wonderful
Life, or anyone who loves the spirit of Christmas, can own the
story that started it all in an appealing hardcover edition that's
perfect for holiday giving to family, friends, co-workers,
neighbours, and more.
