HOLLYWOOD, California (CNN) -- If Jimmy Stewart were still with us, he would probably be listening to the radio to hear a new version of his favorite film.
This time, Bill Pullman is George Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life." Perhaps because the Stewart version would be impossible to top, this version was made as a radio play. It will be broadcast on PBS stations on Christmas Day. Also starring: Penelope Ann Miller in the Donna Reed role and Nathan Lane as Clarence, the angel who helps George find his way home in time for Christmas.
