Only a first class angel can score 12/14 on this It's a Wonderful Life Quiz

Winners get their wings!

Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life is the Christmas movie that could. Overlooked practically as much as the hero at the heart of its story, the holiday story is now a cherished part of film history, despite the fact that very few folks caught it in theaters when it was released in 1946.

Starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, It's a Wonderful Life takes you on a wild adventure through the ups and downs of one man's constant struggles to fit into the sleepy small town that's imprisoned him. With angels, wishes and a heartwarming ending, it just doesn't feel like Christmas until you rewind the tape on this classic.

Think you know all there is to know about George Bailey's life, inside and out? Stroll back through his wonderful life below and see if you can be the one who's got all the answers this time. 

Only the biggest fans will score 12/14 and earn their honorary wings. Good luck!

I noticed one error in the movie: when Clarence is showing George what life would have been like if George had never been born, he shows him Harry's grave. Clarence says that Harry crashed through the ice and drowned at the age of 9. However, when they show the years on the tombstone, it adds up to 8, not 9.

Small piece of trivia
The Sesame Street characters 'Bert' and 'Ernie' were inspired by, and named after, the characters of Bert, the cop, and Ernie, the taxi driver, from this movie.

Actually, that piece of trivia has been disproven by Brian Henson himself, the son of Jim Henson, who created the muppets. Henson said the muppet names were just a coincidence.

Considering that I have never seen the movies, getting 11 out of 14 is impressive to me.

#8 does not have a correct answer. It is a raven not a crow. Jimmy the Raven actually.

Yeah, but it's alright, not many people know there is a difference, let alone that they are two different birds.

14 out of 14! I love this movie!! I love it so much that I am questioning why are the scenes from the movie are colorized? I hate it when classic black and white films are colorized. Colorization robs the film of its purity and power to move the viewer and becomes a distraction from the filmmaker’s vision. One quibble I have with “It’s a Wonderful Life” is the derision shown Clarence the Angel because he is a clockmaker. Clockmakers back when Clarence was alive were skilled mechanical craftsmen who made metal precision time pieces as well as the intricately carved wooden structures housing the devices. Clarence deserved more respect from his fellow angels. End of quibble.

12/14. Mixed up Bert and Ernie, also 3 and 8. What a wonderful movie, so chilling the first time I saw it and realized what was going on in George’s non George world.
