It's A Wonderful Life (1946) – James Stewart: Embezzlement?

Funny how embezzlements seem to find me whatever I am doing.

Believe it or not, although at my age I have had much opportunity, I had never watched the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” staring Jimmy Stewart until the other night.

Much to my surprise the movie centered around Stewart working at a bank, and $8,000 of missing money.  Customer Potter actually stole the funds, resulting in the loss.  Turning to Potter out of desperation to obtain a loan to make the funds whole, Potter in turn never mentions he stole the funds, and rather calls the prosecutor and authorities to have Stewart arrested for embezzling the funds from the bank.

I won’t share more of the details, as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who has not seen the movie.  It is a “must see” film.

I just found it interesting that when I took a moment away from the daily fraud grind, and sat down to finally watch this classic, that it involved embezzlement.

Here’s a link to a trailer for the movie via Youtube:

  20. In the awesome pattern of things you get a B- just for effort and hard work. Where exactly you confused us was in all the details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more correct at this point. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did work. Your writing is actually incredibly engaging which is probably the reason why I am making the effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily see a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am definitely not sure of exactly how you appear to unite the points that produce the actual conclusion. For right now I shall subscribe to your position however hope in the near future you actually link your facts much better.
