George Bailey is not having a good day. His life in the sleepy little town of Bedford Falls has been thrown off track, perhaps never to recover. His business has failed, he's wanted by the police, and he's had a fight with his beloved wife Mary. On this disastrous day, his responsibilities and frustrations overwhelm him, leading him to a bridge and serious contemplation of suicide. It's up to an angel named Clarence to convince George that his life has been one of worth and that it's still worth living. After taking a long look at George's life, the angel offers a portrait of what life in Bedford Falls would be like if George had never been born. This classic, sentimental favorite has become a Christmas tradition

The awful truth by Leo McCarey( Visual )

7 editions published between 1937 and 2018 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comedy of divorce and remarriage; the battle of the sexes is a battle between equals. As in other screwball comedies such as Bringing Up Baby and His Girl Friday 'love is consumated in gags', to quote critic Molly Haskell. The love that is celebrated is difficult and anarchic rather than the secure love of the suburban dream. The film brings together McCarey's beginnings in slapstick comedy and his romanticism. The leisurely pace and loose structure reflect his liking for improvisation to the extent that the writer asked for the removal of his name from the credits

Opposites attract with magnetic force in this romantic road-trip delight, about a spoiled runaway socialite and a roguish man-of-the-people reporter who is determined to get the scoop on her scandalous disappearance.

Platinum blonde by Frank Capra( Visual )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and German and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the film that fueled her legendary career, Jean Harlow stars in this romantic comedy directed by Academy Award winner Frank Capra. Written to showcase Harlow's talent, looks and charm, Platinum Blonde is a glorious spoof of the newspaper business in New York City during the Depression. Ann Schuyler, a wealthy socialite, meets reporter Stew Smith and the two fall madly in love. The comedy begins as she tries to transform him from a ruffian newsman into a convincing gentleman. Stew, who is quick with wisecracks, is slow to realize the dangers of being a kept man. At first, he likes the idle life of the rich, but there's trouble in paradise. Soon this Cinderella Man turns the social register upside down with his mocking repartee. To his rescue is Gallagher, a sympathetic friend and co-worker at the newspaper. She comforts and consoles Stew and, in classic Capra style, helps him right into her own arms.--Container

6 editions published between 1937 and 2018 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"IIn this Oscar-winning farce, Cary Grant (in the role that first defined the Cary Grant persona) and Irene Dunne exude charm, cunning, and artless affection as an urbane couple who, fed up with each other's infidelities, resolve to file for divorce. But try as they might to move on, the mischievous Jerry can't help meddling in Lucy's ill-matched engagement to a corn-fed Oklahoma businessman (Ralph Bellamy), and a mortified Lucy begins to realize that she may be saying goodbye to the only dance partner capable of following her lead. Directed by the versatile Leo McCarey, a master of improvisation and slapstick as well as a keen and sympathetic observer of human folly, The Awful Truth is a warm but unsparing comedy about two people whose flaws only make them more irresistable"--Container
