Frank Capra Jr. Dies at 73

The son of the famous director, who was a filmmaker in his own right, has died.

In recent years Capra headed a film studio based in Wilmington, North Carolina. The studio is said to be the nation's largest film production center east of California.

It's rather poignant that the younger Capra passed away at Christmastime, the setting for what might be his father's most famous movie, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE.

London's Daily Telegraph, coincidentally, published a nice essay today on WONDERFUL LIFE.

Regarding WONDERFUL LIFE, I also highly recommend this thoughtful column by Glenn Erickson at DVD Savant.
