It’s a family tradition to watch It’s A Wonderful Life every Christmas, and a personal favorite of both our editors. (Fun Fact: We love it so much that it was worked into the maid of honor speech this editor gave at the other’s wedding!) Here is the gorgeous Donna Reed as Mary Bailey in a beautiful, long-sleeved black dress with a white lace collar, a strand of white pearls and a pair of black heels. All dressed up for Christmas dinner, Mary doesn’t realize that her husband, George, may be going to prison if he doesn’t sort out his uncle’s financial mess… but she figures out something is wrong pretty quickly! Thankfully a pretty slick angel and the townspeople of Bedford Falls come to George’s rescue, after Mary gathers friends, family and neighbors to aid the man that’s worked hard for them all their lives. It’s one of the most touching films of all-time, and Reed saves the day as one adorable heroine in this Christmas classic.
