It’s a Wonderful Life:
The Making of a Holiday Classic

An illustrated lecture by historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D.

Wednesday, December 12 • 6:30 PM, Edgebrook Library, 5331 West Devon, 2nd Floor Community Room

Did you know Cary Grant was supposed to star in It's a Wonderful Life? That the gym-floor-turned-swimming-pool was real? That the movie bombed at the box office?

Even if you've seen the holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life 150 times, you'll have fun exploring the movie's creation including how the script evolved, how the cast was chosen, and the technical challenges that were overcome.

Enjoy rare photographs taken behind-the-scenes and find out what happened to the cast.

Rediscover Frank Capra's masterpiece like you've never seen it before.

Registration is required. Click here to register.

This presentation is underwritten by the generous members of the Edgebrook Community Association.


Thanks for attending the
2018 Holiday Stroll & Cookie Walk!

Enjoy Christine Rosenberg's photos.

Snow Plowing Service provided by the ECA

The City of Chicago’s primary concern is keeping the major traffic arteries clear. Plowing side streets is a much lower priority for the Department of Streets and Sanitation.

The ECA, on the other hand, is concerned about emergency vehicle access to our side streets as well as the ability of our neighbors to get out of the neighborhood and off to work in a timely fashion.

The ECA notifies our plowing contractor when snow fall reaches four inches. The contractor clears a path down the center of the street. The goal is not total snow removal, but rather the creation of an access path for emergency vehicles as well as egress for our neighbors.

The ECA provides snow plow service to this area, excluding the major city streets.
