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 arrest and incarceration of Joe Burdette for murder has set these three at odds with his brother, corrupt and wealthy landowner Nathan Burdette. Nathan assembles a force of hired guns to spring Joe, while Chance enlists hotshot gunslinger Colorado. Complications arise in the form of Feathers--not the usual saloon floozy but a competent professional gambler accustomed to sparring with men--who has an eye for Chance

Johnny Guitar by Nicholas Ray( Visual )

26 editions published between 1954 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnny Guitar rides into a lonely Arizona town, passing by a dynamite blast and a stage robbery in the canyon below, arriving at Vienna's saloon in the middle of a raging dust storm. He's looking for a new life, for a job where he can play guitar and be nice to the customers. There's no sense, to him anyway, in resurrecting Johnny Logan, the deadly gunslinger he once was and hopes never to be again. But Vienna's feud with local cattle baron Emma Small--over the favors of a cowboy called the Dancin' Kid and the location of the railroad--is approaching its apex, and Johnny's skills will be needed. Both lauded and lamented by critics, the film has been called a psycho sexual melodrama, an anti-McCarthy parable, an expressionistic experiment, and a masterpiece of symbolism in Technicolor so lurid it almost overwhelms the neurotic story. Whatever the final verdict, this is certainly not a typical Western
