Ever wonder if the famed director It’s a Wonderful Life himself had a wonderful life? This full-fledged autobiography seeks to answer that question, and it is crafted as well as his great films. The Wall Street Journal named it one of the five best books about the entertainment industry. In addition to covering his own work (It Happened One Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Arsenic and Old Lace, et al.), he discusses the actors with whom he worked and the films of other directors, as well as his own personal life.
“Whenever a situation develops to its extreme, it is bound to turn around and become its opposite.”
