It's A Wonderful Life debuting on Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray in November

It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
Dir: Frank Capra | Cast: Donna Reed, James Stewart, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Mitchell | Writers: Albert Hackett (screenplay), Frances Goodrich (screenplay), Frank Capra (screenplay), Jo Swerling (additional scenes), Philip Van Doren Stern (story)

Frank Capra's seasonal classic, It's A Wonderful Life, is set to get its first ever release on Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray on 4th November. The original black and white version of the film has had a brand new 4K remaster and the two-disc release will also feature a colourised edition.

Paramount spent over a year painstakingly restoring this treasured film, using the original nitrate negative along with two fine grain masters made in the 1940s.  Each element was carefully scanned using the very latest technology to both preserve the delicate negative and create the best possible digital image.  Fortunately, 13 of the 14 reels of the original negative survived, but portions had begun to deteriorate so the best image was selected from one of the three original sources on a shot-by-shot basis.  The result is a more vibrant and detail-rich picture that brings this classic to life like never before.

  • 4K Blu-ray
  • Blu-ray

Exclusive features for this release include:

  • Secrets from the Vault: It's a Wonderful Life
