FBI Considered "It's A Wonderful Life" Communist Propaganda



George and Mary Bailey looking happy

I love It's a Wonderful Life because it teaches us that family, friendship, and virtue are the true definitions of wealth.


In 1947, however, the FBI considered this anti-consumerist message as subversive Communist propaganda (read original FBI memo).



According to Professor John Noakes of Franklin and Marshall College, the FBI thought Life smeared American values such as wealth and free enterprise while glorifying anti-American values such as the triumph of the common man.



The FBI specifically detested the way Mr. Potter was portrayed:


The casting of Lionel Barrymore as a "scrooge-type" resulted in the loathsome Mr. Potter becoming the most hated person in the film. According to the official FBI report, "this was a common trick used by the communists."


I fired up "The Google" and dug up the original FBI report

The original document was a bit hard to read so I transcribed it
[δηλαδή η μειωση της κατανάλωσης λογω φτώχειας οφείλεται αραγε και σήμερα,στην κομμουνιστική προπαγάνδα; τι λέει αραγε το ...καθ'ημάς FBI;΄]

ΒΡΕ ΚΑΛΩΣ ΤΑ ''ΠΑΙΔΙΑ''!

Oι ανόητοι θεωρουν οτι το να αστειεύεσαι

σημαίνει πως δεν εισαι σοβαρός

κι οτι ενα παιχνίδι με τις λέξεις δεν αποτελει απάντηση
