This week on Beyond The Box Set, John and Harry kick off their festive season by pitching modern-day sequels for the most heartwarming holiday classic ever made - Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life. Join us as we discuss George Bailey’s fragile mental health, the questionable business ethics of Baily Brothers Building & Loans and why there’s something about Mary that we just don’t trust… We’re also joined by our first ever returning guest Ross Burton, who helps us to pitch sequel ideas including a Christopher Nolan-style retelling of Harry Bailey’s wartime adventures, a remake populated entirely by The Muppets and a bleak dystopian thriller that exposes the real reason George was never able to leave Bedford falls… Released in 1946, It’s a Wonderful Life stars Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, Donna Reed as Mary, Lionel Barrymore as the evil Mr Potter and Gloria Grahame as Violet. Like all classic movies, it was only modestly received on release, but soon built up a reputation of one of the most beloved films…
