Make sure to check this DVD as soon as you received it or at lest make sure you do that before 30 day exchange or return policy expires. The one I received was not playable in this region although it stated correct Region 1 and NTSC at the back of DVD. After 30 days you are out of luck with Amazon replacement or return policy.

There is virtually no plot to this story and it there are numerous examples of overacting. Also, what content there is to the story is quite implausible. For example, the viewer is expected to believe that the capitalist, big businessman, Mr. Potter, is nothing but a mean-spirited, selfish old codger that wants nothing more than to obtain total control over the livelihood of the people of Bedford Falls. His chief foil to his schemes is the Bailey Building & Loan; run first by George Bailey`s father and then by George himself. The Bailey`s run their business altruistically and as a result they are continually on the edge of bankruptcy. It finally appears that this will finally happen when George`s feeble-minded uncle inadvertently left $8000 of the bank`s money in a folded up newspaper that he gave to Mr. Potter. While in is most definitely wrong for Mr. Potter to have kept the money knowing that it wasn`t his it seems rather odd that a properly conducted investigation would have revealed these facts. Plus, there is also the question as to why anyone would allow someone to remain employed in their own business beyond that employee`s ability. that is no way to run any business.
There is also a serious flaw in this movie`s other message of giving of yourself without reward. Throughout the entire story there are examples people either expecting or accepting rewards for their good deeds. For example, George`s brother Harry is honored for saving people`s lives during World War 2, George`s wife Mary, after the $8000 is discovered missing, calls in any favors that they have done for people over the years expecting a bailout, and finally, the angel Clarence accepts the assignment of helping George Bailey because he want to earn his wings. The point is that no one ever really does anything expecting nothing in return. That is just as true in heaven as it is on earth.

Great movie (especially at Christmas). Who are the morons who decided to pan and scan it? This DVD is a travesty, an atrocity - like an accountant trimming the Mona Lisa to save costs on the frame. Do not encourage the philistines by buying this abomination!
