"I could never get past the title."

Some things just become so much a part of popular culture that everyone knows about them, knows all the details, whether or not they've seen them or read them or had any real exposure to them.

I was so thoroughly familiar with Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart's classic, It's a Wonderful Life, that I hadn't realized I'd never actually seen it -- that is, until I sat down with Quel to watch it tonight on NBC.

I mean, I knew I'd never managed to see it all the way through -- but I hadn't seen it at all, except for that oft-referenced clip of the last five minutes.

Wow, what a terrific film.

(And five points to the person who can identify the quote in the subject line.)
