Was one of the world's most beloved motion pictures influenced by a small upstate New York town? The Real Bedford Falls: It’s A Wonderful Life explores the connections between Seneca Falls, New York, and Bedford Falls, the setting of the movie It’s a Wonderful Life. The documentary examines small-town life in Seneca Falls, captures the excitement of the annual It’s a Wonderful Life Festival, and celebrates the enduring themes of Frank Capra's holiday classic. The film features interviews with Karolyn Grimes (who played Zuzu Bailey), Jimmy Hawkins (who played Tommy Bailey), Monica Capra Hodges, granddaughter of Frank Capra, and film critic Leonard Maltin.
