St. Paul, Minn. — Two WWII vets just returned from front line action pair up in Hollywood to make one of the most touching movies of all time. Jimmy Stewart stars in Frank Capra's masterpiece about George Bailey's redemption in Bedford Falls. Although not a hit at the box office, it is now considered to be one of the greatest American films of all time.

Saturday Cinema continues in the spirit of the season with music from other holiday classics.

As a Web bonus, the Cube Critics provide this video that looks at their picks for the best films of 2013.
