It Happened One Christmas DVD -1977 Movie
It is a remake of the classic film It's a Wonderful Life , notable for the role reversal and surname change of the two main characters. Marlo Thomas stars as Mary Bailey , who, in contrast to the original film, is the main character rather than husband George Hatch , played here by Wayne Rogers. In another departure from the original film, the male angel Clarence Oddbody is now a female one named Clara Oddbody, played by Cloris Leachman. The part of the villainous Mr. Potter was played by film legend Orson Welles.
On a Christmas Eve, in a moment of financial crisis, a severely depressed Mary contemplates suicide , but is rescued by her guardian angel , Clara Oddbody Cloris Leachman. Clara shows Mary the positive effect that she has had on everyone she has met throughout her life. Lionel Chetwynd 's teleplay, directed by Donald Wrye, varies little from the original screenplay, even using most of the original dialogue. Thomas served as executive producer for the project. Revisions in the script include fleshing out and exploring some of the characters who are citizens of Bedford Falls to a greater extent than in the original. All four characters are shown in uniform, interspersed with actual war footage. Another brief scene depicts George attempting to readjust to civilian life after the war has ended.

What happened was the kind of abomination you'd normally snap off immediately; a syrupy, about Tiny Tim and Scrooge, but this time set in happy, homey, small-town America with a heroine Marlo Thomas who exudes more goo per second than anyone seen before. The ghosts of Christmas past, present and future are combined in one Mary Poppins character with a cockney accent., Sign in.
