As we approach the 71st anniversary of Frank Capra’s perennial Christmas classic “It’s A Wonderful Life,” I think it’s time to reexamine the film’s heroes. The result might surprise you.
As a child, I assumed the hero was Jimmy Stewart’s wholesome hometown character, George Bailey. The American Film Institute agreed, listing George as the ninth greatest screen hero of all time. After all, the whole point of the movie is to show us what life in Bedford Falls would be like without George.

Here’s a lesson about why we need “our” “female Human Resources”. (And, we should thank all the countries of the world who keep “their” females barefoot, pregnant, and uneducated.)
While my personal “Christmas hero” is pre-transformation old Ebenezer — who gets a bum rap imho, I can certainly make room for a heroine as #2.
