“It’s a Wonderful Life” is not just widely considered to be one of the best Christmas movies ever made, but one of the finest films of all time.

Released in 1947, Frank Capra’s film about a down-on-his luck businessman garnered five Academy Award nominations (including for Best Picture) and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made.

And thanks to its copyright expiring in 1974, the film has since regularly aired on broadcast networks every Christmas season, becoming a holiday tradition for many.

If “It’s a Wonderful Life” has become appointment viewing for you and your family every holiday season, here’s how to watch it as Christmas approaches:
