Hometown Holiday: It's a Wonderful Life in Elmhurst

Perhaps the most beloved of all holiday movies, Frank Capra’s “It’s A Wonderful Life” has captured American hearts with its depiction of George Bailey and his struggles in the small town of Bedford Falls. Experience the nostalgia and sentiment of this classic film though a private collection from Richard Goodson of rare memorabilia including vintage movie posters, rare photographs, collectibles, and more. Learn about the making of the movie, the cast and what became of them, and much more. Additional seasonal objects from our collection will be on display, including handmade Christmas ornaments from Dresden, Germany and original prints by former Elmhurst resident Lee Sturges, a well-known American artist and etcher. Seasonal holiday decor throughout the gallery provided by members of the Elmhurst Garden Club.
