For It's a Wonderful Life Day, Let's Honor the BHHS Swim-Gym

New, 4 comments

Today marks the sixty-fifth anniversary of the release of the beloved classic It's a Wonderful Life. The City Council has declared it It's a Wonderful Life day and a ceremony, attended by members of director Frank Capra's family, as well as actor Jimmy Hawkins, who played George and Mary's youngest child, Tommy, was held at Capra's Walk of Fame star this morning in honor of the occasion. Here at Curbed, we'd like to commemorate the day with a look at one of the film's most memorable scenes, which was shot in Beverly Hills High School's glorious swim-gym, designed as a New Deal project in 1939 by Stiles O. Clements.
