Happy Birthday Frank Capra

Today would have been the birthday of the great American director Frank Capra who was known for his inspirational stories. Some of his most famous films include It Happened One Night (1934), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), and of course It’s a Wonderful Life (1946). Two of his lesser known films that are also enjoyable include Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) and Meet John Doe (1941). His films may always seem optimistic but I think that is why I appreciate his work so much. Ultimately, Capra films lift your spirits and that is a wonderful thing!

  1. Happy Birthday to Mr. Capra…one of my favorite directors! My favorite Capra film is “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town.” It's the film which began my love affair with Gary Cooper!

    Thanks for remembering Mr. Capra on his birthday!
