I watch my favorite movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” every Christmas. One of my favorite things about the movie is Donna Reed who was absolutely beautiful. She went on to win an Oscar in 1953 for her work in “From Here to Eternity” and then starred in her own TV series called “The Donna Reed Show”. Sadly, she passed away too young at age 64 due to pancreatic cancer in 1986. Here are some videos about Donna Reed.
