There's not many Christmas movies that I watch every single year, but one of them is Frank Capra's 1946 black & white classic, It's A Wonderful Life.
Recently, CRACKED.com posted 15 "Facts About 'It's A Wonderful Life' You Probably Didn't Know" and it's true, I didn't know most of them!
Here's the 8 facts which fascinated me the most!
If you want to see the other 7 facts, you can find the CRACKED article here.
Oddly enough, CRACKED did NOT include the one bit of trivia that I DID already know: namely, that the Sesame Street characters of Bert and Ernie were named after Bert the policeman and Ernie the cab driver from this movie!
D'oh! Turns out it wasn't included because that persistent rumour is FALSE! Read its debunking here.
Oh well, at least it's still true that these Muppet roommates were modeled on a gay couple's relationship!
I'll just have to settle for that now!
