Its a Wonderful Life in Seneca Falls (Photos and Video)

It’s been almost two decades since Seneca Falls started celebrating a suspected connection to Bedford Falls, the town in Director Frank Capra’s classic film "It's A Wonderful Life." There are references to upstate cities like Elmira, Buffalo and Rochester. There’s also the fact that Capra got his hair cut in Seneca Falls shortly before making the movie. And, of course, the Bridge Street Bridge -- which looks just like the one George Bailey jumps off to save an angel. Thousands of people visited Seneca Falls for the weekend festival.
