(Frank Capra, US 1946, 130 min., 35mm)
Holidays | The Canon. James Stewart and Donna Reed find their way through rough times in Bedford Falls (modeled on nearby Seneca Falls, New York) by way of a loving, dedicated relationship and a little heavenly intervention. As Stewart’s and Capra’s first work after their military service, the film takes the postwar malaise often seen in film noir and turns it on its head, constructing a narrative of faith and perseverance.
