Frank Capra's unlikely, uplifting paean to the pitfalls and pleasures of a simple, small-town existence remains a vital work and Paramount has done a respectable job transferring it to Blu-ray.

A great American-ization of the classic Scrooge tale, told from the POV of Bob Cratchet.

I understand the concern some people may have about buying a high-definition edition of an old B&W film. I can say without hesitation, I'd do it. (Blu-ray Collector's Edition)

Capra's film should be freed from its syrupy holiday status, but, like Clarence the angel, this mostly recycled Collector's Set lacks wings.

Stewart and then-newcomer Donna Reed are, by turns, both charming and sizzling as one of filmdom's great onscreen couples in this happily-ever-after tale

This DVD would make a fine upgrade for any fan. . . .The night scenes are no longer murky and muddy, the sound doesn't buzz and the THX remixing of sound and picture give the movie the respect it has slowly earned over the years.
