Iowa History 101: It's A Wonderful Life

  • Overview

    Join Leo Landis, State Curator at the State Historical Museum of Iowa, and Christopher Wilson, Director of Experience Design at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, as they discuss how the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” has become a holiday tradition and a feel-good Hollywood tale of redemption. Now that 75 years have passed since its premiere, the movie also offers a glimpse into history, at a turbulent era when Americans confronted many challenges that are still unsettled today. #Iowa175
