Clarence: Angel, Apparition or Alien?

Dec 7, 2012

On December 24th, 1945, a small town businessman from upstate New York was in the fight of his life.  Deeply troubled by a fiscal misdeed, 38-year-old George Bailey was suicidal.  That evening’s events have since evolved into an American myth.  Today, we re-examine his vision and explore other interpretations, including a couple of theories his “guardian angel” was not heaven sent.
