  • Details
In this Frank Capra classic, Tony (James Stewart) and Alice (Jean Arthur) meet and fall in love. But things are far from rosy: He's the son of a millionaire, and she and her wacky family live in a house that's in the way of the senior Kirby's construction project. Will an office building literally stand in the way of true love? The movie, adapted from a Pulitzer Prize-winning play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, delivers the answer.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Frank Capra classic is delightful family viewing. The only red flag is the slightly condescending treatment of two African-American characters.

Social Behavior

Overall the movie has extremely positive messages about pursuing your dreams and supporting the people you care about. Reflecting the time in which the movie was made, the two African-American characters, a maid and her out-of-work boyfriend, are treated with some affection but also condescension.
