Marlo Thomas did a remake of the movie It’s a Wonderful Life. Is it available on video?

—Mrs. Charlie Ellsworth, Show Low, Ariz.

The 1977 made-for-TV movie It Happened One Christmas was, indeed, a remake of the Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life, with Marlo Thomas playing the “regendered” Jimmy Stewart role as a frazzled, suicidal banker who has to be shown how the world would have been different without her. The movie never was released on video, but it does exist on DVD.
