Very good radio play

This is a radio play narrated by James Stewart and Donna Reed both of whom starred in the original movie. I really enjoyed it BUT the only complaint I have (and which is why I gave 4 stars not 5) is that it is abridged (based on the movie) and a lot of content is simply narrated by the Clarence character to move the story along. It is a quick way however to fit in It's a Wonderful Life in under an hour.

Whats not to like??

If you buy this, then you have no doubt seen the movie. This is an abbreviated (I think) version of the movie and its great. It should be mandatory to listen to or watch Its a Wonderful Life every Christmas, its that good!
