“George Bailey by no means escaped Bedford Falls. A string of unbelievable circumstances at all times prevented him from taking the practice out of city (loss of life of his father, the profession of his brother, near-bankruptcy of the financial institution, and so forth.). I believe that is just because George was by no means speculated to get out. The station led to nowhere, and some kilometers down the highway, a really giant, sky-colored wall confirmed the tip of a mega-studio.
“My principle is that George was the unwilling star of a actuality present, surrounded by actors who performed his household, his associates, his colleagues, his spouse, everybody. Probably, the entire thing began after that traumatic accident within the icy water. George might have misplaced all earlier reminiscences of his childhood and was within the preferrred clean state to reinvent a staged life to make imagine he saved his brother (who did not exist).
“This principle rationalizes all the fantastical parts of the story. The alternate life was not an phantasm created by Clarence the angel, however a restaging in actual time. Whereas George was away from town middle with Clarence, a military of decorators rapidly designed ‘Pottersville,’ and new roles had been quickly assigned to the common forged of gamers.
“The whole movie is sort of a very particular episode that remembers the important thing moments of George’s life, narrated by media executives who observe ‘Bedford Falls’ from above (in order that their voices come from stars within the pretend night time sky). The alternate life part is actually the boldest try to control George.”
