Friday Morning Humor: It’s a Wonderful Life Lost Ending

Everyone know the heart warming Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” and it’s happy ending. The townsfolk of Bedford Falls come to George Baileys rescue on Christmas Eve with enough cash to thwart old man Potter’s attempts to finally take over the Building and Loan.

Recently unearthed however is a somewhat more controversial alternative ending that director Frank Capra had cut from the ending of the movie. Capra had no intentions of allowing anyone to see this alternative ending , it was believed to have been destroyed by Capra himself until a copy of it surfaced in some old film collectors attic a few years back, or so the story goes.

I think that you will find it interesting but I hope that it doesn’t ruin the holiday classic for you the next time you happen to see it!
