The Wolf of Bedford Falls

This fake-trailer riff on The Wolf of Wall Street and It’s a Wonderful Life, created by Owen Weber, serves two worthy purposes: 1) It’s fairly amusing, at least to me, and 2) it inadvertently highlights, for those who have never noticed, that the Frank Capra/Jimmy Stewart classic is a darker, sexier movie than it typically gets credit for.

Enjoy.
