FRANK CAPRA'S "IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE" is a vintage Hollywood film starring James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who, despite his best efforts to escape, remains the bedrock of the small town of Bedford Falls.

Violence

Mild violence occurs when George, as a boy, is repeatedly cuffed around the ear by his employer. The attack carries emotional weight as the man is distraught at the loss of a family member. Other mild violence includes characters involved in brief fist fights, and shots fired by the police during a chase sequence.

There is a suicide theme involving a central character, but again this remains suitable at U for its fantastical angle and the eventual reassuring outcome.
