Suppose you're one of those people who are so busy around the holidays that you miss all 429 screenings of the classic It's a Wonderful Life. No problem. Thanks to Nick at Nite, you can have the happiest and sappiest moments to listen to again and again--on CD! This unique CD contains both the music and dialogue from key scenes in the film. Some of the tracks are self-explanatory, like "Clarence's Leap of Faith," or "George Bailey Doesn't Exist." Other "scenes" might require a bit of a Frank Capra buff to figure out. A perfect gift for anyone who loves the movie, Jimmy Stewart, and all things Bedford Falls. --Steve Gdula

"I had been looking for the soundtrack to this movie for a long time. Finally, one summer, I found a copy at a CD store. I got too excited when i saw it, because when I listened to it at home, none of the movie dialogue was filtered out of the music. Since the time I purchased that CD, I've seen only one other version available - It's A Wonderful Life: music from and inspired by the film. The only way you are able to get this is during Christmas time. It comes in a movie/soundtrack two-pack for ...(a good price). However, I am very happy to have found this CD, because I am a collector of old music and radio shows. So, if you too are a collector, search for this item."

NOT the 1946 Film - Same actors on radio

"This isn't any sort of 'soundtrack' for the movie, it's a radio production of the script with Stewart and Reed. These radio presentations were common in the era, and many movies can be found in this form.
It's the same wonderful story, and the live performance adds a new dimension, for instance, highlighting some humor that isn't as obvious in the film.
An interesting aspect of this is the obvious commercial nature of the production, with live in-line commercials/testimonials for the sponsering soap. At first, it's seems annoying, but it becomes charming.
A must for fans of the film."
