If you haven’t yet seen a Frank Capra movie then you have missed a lot. So if possible start with this movie itself. In simple comparison terms Frank Capra is the Hrishikesh Mukherjee of the West and vice-versa. You will find beautiful simplicity with comic sequences in his films as it is in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s films in India. Characters very close to the real life and mainly from the middle class families is another feature of Frank Capra’s classics. This movie particularly ranks among his top 5 flicks. The film deals with the fact that you should do what you wish to do in your life. Live life as you want to live it on your own terms. You may not be rich in monetary sense if you opt for this kind of living but you will surely be more contended than all the others in the race. And you will enjoy your life to the maximum. Each character in the story is doing what he loves to do and you will surely fall in love with all of them living under one roof. The climax is always a happy ending in Capra films and it also brings tears in your eyes. Simply not to be missed classic. Just go for it this moment.
Directed By Frank Capra
Starring : Lionle Barrymore, Jean Arthur, James Stewart & More
