Plot & Details

It's hard to think of American cinema without thinking of director Frank Capra, whose large and varied body of work includes such classics as It Happened One Night (1934), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), and It's a Wonderful Life (1946). This detailed documentary offers an insightful portrait of the Sicilian-born director's life and extraordinary career. His story is narrated by director Ron Howard and is punctuated with reminiscences of those who knew him, including Fay Wray, Angela Lansbury and Andre de Toth and well-chosen excerpts from his filmography. The film also includes illuminating interviews with directors and actors inspired by Capra.
