Frank Capra's It's a wonderful life by Frank Capra( Visual )

George Bailey is not having a good day. His life in the sleepy little town of Bedford Falls has been thrown off track, perhaps never to recover. His business has failed, he's wanted by the police, and he's had a fight with his beloved wife Mary. On this disastrous day, his responsibilities and frustrations overwhelm him, leading him to a bridge and serious contemplation of suicide. It's up to an angel named Clarence to convince George that his life has been one of worth and that it's still worth living. After taking a long look at George's life, the angel offers a portrait of what life in Bedford Falls would be like if George had never been born. This classic, sentimental favorite has become a Christmas tradition

Lost horizon by Frank Capra( Visual )

16 editions published between 1937 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein englischer Diplomat wird in ein abgeschiedenes Himalayatal entführt, wo man ihm die Führung einer dort in kultivierter Geistigkeit und scheinbar vollkommener Harmonie lebenden Gemeinschaft anbietet. Unter dem Einfluß einer Frau verweigert er sich dieser Aufgabe, bereut es später und verunglückt - gewollt oder ungewollt - tödlich. Die phantastische Verfilmung eines utopischen Romans von James Hilton über den alten Menschheitstraum vom absoluten äußeren und inneren Frieden. Capras Film, eine vor allem durch ihre Atmosphäre faszinierende, romantische und pessimistische Allegorie, behandelt die Flucht aus der realen Welt, nicht die Auseinandersetzung mit ihr.

The awful truth by Leo McCarey( Visual )

7 editions published between 1937 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comedy of divorce and remarriage; the battle of the sexes is a battle between equals. As in other screwball comedies such as Bringing Up Baby and His Girl Friday 'love is consumated in gags', to quote critic Molly Haskell. The love that is celebrated is difficult and anarchic rather than the secure love of the suburban dream. The film brings together McCarey's beginnings in slapstick comedy and his romanticism. The leisurely pace and loose structure reflect his liking for improvisation to the extent that the writer asked for the removal of his name from the credits
