You Can't Take It With You

Brian and I FINALLY got a little free time to watch a movie. This is an old one directed by Frank Coppolla, the same guy who directed one of my all-time favorite movies, It's a Wonderful Life. There are actually a lot of similarities between the two movies. Many of the same actors played in both. James Stewart (or as my Grandma's both called him - Jimmy Stewart) stars in both. The actor who played the bad guy in "It's a Wonderful Life" plays the good guy in this movie - really funny to see "Potter" with a heart!

Well we call him Jimmy Stewart also - I thought everyone did!

We've watched a bunch of his movies but this one doesn't sound familiar...could be b/c of it being from 1938. We try to avoid movies before mid-1940s b/c it seems like the sound and visual quality of those old movies is so poor. BUT our library has it - so I went ahead and ordered it.
