Because one of the bankers there, received a personal recommendation of this movie as being a "lovely family film depicting the banking environment". Since obviously nobody at GS knew it, they watched.

And God knows, those GS-"coffin nails" for our world, the humanism and the message of this infinitely miraculous Flm-tale for anyone didn't fail to touch them either - because after 125 minutes they had to admit, that very very deep inside they still have remained ohhh so human.

So here we have a tender scene with all these icey-cold capitalism-perverters, of the entire board of Goldman-Sachs crying really hard, so that the many many zeros of the net profit, stated in the Annual Report of Goldman Sachs Holding, Cayman Islands gets literally "waterboarded" tear-fully, hence becoming illegible. And even the CFO clenches his fist and waves it, at the obvious greed of this wheelchaired hard-core-capitalist (Lionel Barrymore), who as a matter of fact is cheating on proud average joe-homeowners-to-be, backed by honest and trustworthy bank-clerks of the "Savings & loan". Yet he doesn't obviously seem to give a shyte. As our slightly confused bankers gradually begin to grasp, they all start to think of their loved ones at home, in their humble, yet alarm-protected huts in the Hamptons.
The legally tax-deducted luxury-85-inch-Panasony TV leaves no doubt as to what the human community actually holds together.
"Heartless" Bankers with quite moist eyes flop into each other's arms, comforting themselves and some of them even feel the urge to instantly call for a Presbyterian priest, where they can confess all their sins immediately.

In a fit of unbridled emotion the entire board-members then decide unanimously, to also send this heart-warming magic fairy-tale to the - not only spiritually related - companies of Monsanto, Halliburton, Blackrock, Wal-Mart, Smithfield Foods, Nestlé and Glencore on Blu-Ray as a X-mas-gift. Attached to it a poignant personal dedication and rushed out via overnight express-delivery by Fed-Ex. And even 2 more Blu-Rays for the not-yet-rich-enough 2 Koch brothers are generously added, because today the bankers are simply in da moooooooooooooood.

And all this just because of Jimmy Stewart's generosity, a lasso, the moon, Donna Reed's back-up, wee-Susu, Flower-healy-heal, angels in their nightgowns, scatterbrained uncles and utterly miraculous friendships. As well as because of bells that do not only jingle, when Amazon again pushes another DVD/Blu-Ray of this timeless, heart-warming tale over the cash counter for the interested reader of this totally factual review ............................... yeah, all of this hopefully gives you an idea, what this poignant film can do for each of us still today. Not only on Christmas.
Because it embodies the spirit of a great socialist (!!!) named Franklin D. Roosevelt, who would have loved this movie (not only) as a US president, but unfortunately only passed away 2 years before its release. So he missed it on earth. Maybe not so as an angel?

Thanks for reading this and for understanding about the true meaning of socialist ideas and attitudes, depicted in this movie. Canadians do already know, these ideas are not evil. The USA however could use a lot of this spirit again today. It had it once. So re-consider and "feel The BERN". Ring-a-ding.

cheers, >>>>>> the notwister - film = 97% - A masterpiece. Period. Forever. And ever

Marvellous film, almost a horror story sometimes but what a pay off! Jimmy Stewart at the top of his form and this was his first film after flying bombers in WW2.

An exceptional cast crafted this heart-warming story to perfection. The story asks the viewer to reflect upon his/her particular life in light of the positive difference in the lives of others he made, but perhaps overlooked in some later, troubled time. We make a positive difference in the lives of others, and often subconsciously; but in reflection, the world would have a tragic void had we not passed through it: meeting and touching the people we did along the way.

Movie itself has always been a great movie for its time and with lasting life-learning experience. However, reviews were misleading. I expected to have both a black & white version and a colour version, but it was only black and white.
