George Bailey (James Stewart) has the picture perfect life: a loving wife, Mary (Donna Reed), four young children, and his own business, which he inherited from his father. However, on Christmas Eve, George encounters severe business difficulties at the Bailey Building and Loan. George’s Uncle Billy (Thomas Mitchell) loses the cash they owe the bank, which is owned by the Scrooge-esque Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore). This leads George to a life crisis, and he contemplates suicide. He’s saved at the last moment by the apperance of his guardian angel, Clarence (Henry Travers).

Clarence shows George how much his life means by showing him how the world would be without him. It’s not pretty; his cheerful, friendly town is dreary and impoverished. Finally, George is convinced and Clarence returns him to the world as if nothing had happened. George goes home to find the entire community gathered at his house to raise money for his consistently philanthropic loan business. Even Mr. Potter’s accountant donates money to the cause. The movie concludes with George’s brother, Harry (Todd Karns), bursting in the door, back from the war. As the whole community sings “Auld Lang Syne,” a bell rings, telling George that Clarence finally achieved his goal as an angel and obtained his wings.

British housebuilders fall on signs of market intervention

Shares in Britain's housebuilders and property developers fell on Friday after the government and the Bank of England signalled they were ready to intervene to cool the country's surging house market. British house prices have risen by 11 percent over the last year, benefiting house builders but leading to concerns that a bubble could develop. Finance minister George Osborne said late on Thursday he would now give the Bank of England stronger powers to curb mortgage lending, while the Bank's Governor Mark Carney also noted that interest rates could rise sooner than expected, in his strongest warning yet. Shares in the country's biggest housebuilders including Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV.L - news) and Persimmon (Frankfurt: OHP.F - news) , fell over 4 percent, dragging down the FTSE 100 blue-chip index, while Bovis Homes Group, Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW.L - news) , Bellway and Berkeley Group, were down between 3 and 4 percent.
