Sintesi dell'editore

Fifty years ago, a little boy was cast in a movie with some of Hollywood's brightest stars. The movie: It's a Wonderful Life; the boy: Jimmy Hawkins; today, he tells his story.

Through personal recollection, careful research, and interviews with cast and crew, actor Jimmy Hawkins, who played four-year-old Tommy Bailey, takes you behind the scenes for a first-hand look at the American movie classic It's a Wonderful Life.

You'll meet Jimmy Stewart, Frank Capra, Donna Reed, and all the people who made Bedford Falls America's favorite small town. Their memories and anecdotes take you through the movie's creation, from auditions and casting to building the set and making the snow.

This book is a warm and intimate look at the magical film that has touched so many hearts.

©2002 Jimmy Hawkins Company (P)2002 Blackstone Audiobooks

"Fans of the 1946 classic will enjoy the recollections of actor Jimmy Hawkins....The interviews are interesting." (AudioFile)

Wow, I Just Didn’t Know.

I’ve always liked this movie and after listening to this recording I definitely learned something about this classic film that millions before me picked up on the first time they viewed it.First let me say that this is not your typical audiobook.You will hear from the actual people themselves via voice recording that were involved in making the picture. These include the legendary director Frank Capra, Donna Reef,and very briefly James Stewart and more. It turns out there is a message Frank Capra wanted to pass on to all of his fellow man through this picture. The message is whether you are in prison, alone ,going through cobalt treatment etc. every life matters .I had no idea before listening the many people in prison and throughout the country this film influenced for the better and is doubtless still influencing today. There is no telling how many suicides this film has prevented. You will hear how much fun those involved had in making it and the pride they all had being associated with it.Maybe you too will learn something about this movie you didn’t know.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

A great review that felt like a mix of 50s radio broadcasts and 50s Newsreels from the movies. If you're a fan of the movie, you'll love the book.

Wonderful Audible Book

I love the movie. And I really enjoyed this audible. I had never heard this youngest actor’s memories and views of the movie and especially his personal opinion. He made me love the movie even more — which I thought was not possible. You will enjoy this audible. Narration is clear and very easy to understand.

A wonderful tribute to an American classic.

To hear the voices of the actors and producers of this American classic reveals the humanity of those who were able to come together to create a vision of America of perhaps not exactly as it was but as it should be. And it is in the hearts of so many of us.

One for fans of the film

I enjoyed this, but then I love the film and stories about the golden age of Hollywood. This has a bit of everything. Stories, anecdotes, fondly remembered moments with the actors. It's sweet and interesting, and lovely tribute to one of the greatest Christmas movies ever made.
