     The Greatest Gift  
   

The Greatest Gift, the story behind "It's a Wonderful Life"
This half hour readers theatre presentation shares the charming story of this 1943 self published, limited edition Christmas card, that eventually found its way to film Director, Frank Capra, to become the holiday classic, “It’s A Wonderful Life.”  The presentation tells the story itself plus the story behind the story, and how it came to be, what Frank Capra said, “The story I had been looking for all my life!  Small town.  A man, a good man, ambitious.  But so busy helping others, life seemed to pass him by,  Despondent.  He wished he’d never been born.  He gets his wish.  Through the eyes of a guardian angel he sees the world as it would have been had he never been born.”  Author, Phillip Van Dorn Stern’s daughter relates the series of events that begins with the story’s creation and how it became the Christmas classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”  Two actors bring to life the characters of this small town in pre-World War II America that inspired one of this country’s most endearing holiday stories.
