Merry Christmas, George Bailey
12.25.97 - PBS TV
RARE! Only shown once on PBS and never rebroadcast. It was made available on VHS briefly in 1997; however, it is now out-of-print; therefore, new copies are available online via third-party sellers for $169.95 plus shipping and handling. However, if you don't require a new copy, then you've come to the right place.
Enjoy this performance that is based on the 1947 Lux Radio version of "It's a Wonderful Life, taped live in the historic Pasadena Playhouse as a benefit for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
This marvelous PBS show is of a live stage reading of the original radio production of It's A Wonderful Life." It is perfect for Christmas. There are no glitzy sets, costumes, or props--just the stage, which is set to look like an old-time radio studio, some mics, the sound effects guys and their assortment of toys, the orchestra, and a stage full of the brightest stars in Hollywood. What a night! The taping was filmed at the Pasadena Playhouse.
