Sycamore connection

with 4 comments

A feature on CBS Sunday Morning an hour ago dealt with the supposed real-life town that inspired the setting of the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, which for years now has been shown on American television every Christmas season. The CBS story reminded me that the old house that played such a big role in the movie, the one that George and Mary Bailey renovate and move into, was located in the fictional town of Bedford Falls at 320 Sycamore St. Readers of this blog will recall that the post from two days ago featured not the white snow that also played a big part near the end of the movie but several white-barked sycamore trees. Now you can think about these stately native trees of ours every time you watch the classic film.

  1. Funny that a box office “Dud” would go on to be a Christmas Classic for so many years. I love this movie! Thanks for the reminder.
    Many blessings to you and yours, Steve! ~ Lynda

    • Yes, it’s a great movie, and I was glad, like you, to be reminded of the sycamore connection.

      Thanks for your good wishes, and the same to you and your family, Lynda.
