Senior Friend Finders "It Is a Wonderful Life"

"It Is A Wonderful Life"
 I am a old movie buff. Every Christmas I watch "It Is A Wonderful Life." Produced 1946 actors, James Steward, Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore. Post WWII movie that was the way dating, love and marriage was suppose to be. The wife played by, Donna Reed married a high school mate. The man she loved. Even though she had the opportunity to marry a man of greater financial means. With love, respect and honesty they settled in one home raised their kids. George was a honest business man. Surprisingly, he the community banker. They did not have much financially but had wealthy family unity and community friends. Mr. Bailey played , Lionel Barrymore was the heartless community banker. The owner of "Potter's Field". Clarence, the angel trying to earn his wings had to show George how his life had graced everyone that knew him. Through Hollywood magic George was shown what life would have been if he had never been born. After this visual experience via Clarence, George was happy and grateful to be alive. The end of the film the whole community knew George was in a financial bind and could be facing prison time. Family and the whole community rushed to George's aid offering what ever they could spare. Therefore, George was considered "The Wealthiest Man In Town." This is a magical movie.

Remember that old black and white television? The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet aired from 1952 to 1966. Dad, Ozzie Nelson and his wife, Harriet Nelson and their two sons, David Nelson and Ricky Nelson. They lived in the picket fence family neighborhood, “Thorny”. The dad worked and the mom was a stay at home wife and mother. A house, two kids, one dog, one car, working dad and stay at home mom. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, epitomized values and ideas of the American family in the 1950s. In the 1950s and early 1960s a unmarried women single passed 21 years of age carried a stigma.

In the 1960s and 70s America’s social climate was changing. Examples: Viet Nam War, the war protest, Civil Rights Movement, the birth control pill, women seeking employment, women seeking higher education, U.S.landing on the moon, IBM release of the computer and etc. Social valued were changing the Ozzie Harriet era was passing. The show ended in 1966.

"It Is A Wonderful Life" and Ozzie and Harriet were great symbols of dating and marriage in the 40s, 50s and 60s. Traditional ways of meeting friends and mates remain the same. Couple meeting at church, through family and friends, social events and bars. With the times dating has been enhanced. Technology has changed everything.
