  • Born in 1907 to parents Peter and Ma Bailey in the New York town of Bedford Falls, George Bailey always appeared to be a very honorable, likeable, approachable human being. He reportedly saved the life of his nine year-old brother Harry, who almost drowned after falling in a half-frozen lake in the middle of winter. However, future reports have also stated that George may have chided his brother to jump into the lake by teasing his brother, referring to him as a scare-baby. George lost all hearing in his left ear that day, for reasons that have been called into question. Despite George Bailey's kind-hearted surface, the FBI began to target Mr. Bailey as a potential Communist in the days of the red scare; but the bureau was unable to produce any solid evidence against Mr. Bailey, as most of his clever tactics were extremely subtle. For instance, George Bailey was suspected of being a strong opponent of capitalism. He reportedly passed on a trip to Europe, a fine college education, and a prosperous career in the Yukon for the sole purpose of attacking the innocent economical exploits of Henry F. Potter, the most successful capitalist in all of Bedford Falls. Clearly, such incredible devotion to a single ideological cause can only be the work of a political extremist. Regardless, Mr. Bailey managed to escape from any legal charges throughout most of the 1930s. It was also during this decade that he married a very susceptible childhood friend, Mary Hatch, who had recently been convinced by George to break up a relationship with her sweetheart, Sam "Hee-Haw" Wainwright. The young couple, having foregone a honeymoon due to another of George's anti-capitalist exploits, moved into a broken-down house in the middle of the town, where they proceeded to rebuild the house into a mansion as Mary gave birth to four children -- Peter, Janie, Zuzu, and Tigger.
  • Performer(s) Appeared in George Bailey is the main protagonist of the 1946 film It's a Wonderful Life. He was portrayed by James Stewart. He is loosely based on George Pratt, a character in Philip Van Doren Stern's The Greatest Gift. He occupies the ninth slot in the Heroes list in AFI's 100 Years 100 Greatest Heroes and Villains list. Throughout the story, George is shown as a selfless person since childhood. He saves his younger brother Harry from drowning, after he accidentally slides down (on a shovel) into icy water. Rescuing him causes George to lose hearing in one ear. He saves his boss, Mr. Gower, from jail time when he accidentally puts poison in a customer's prescription. Like many boys his age, George is mostly oblivious to the deep crush his friend Mary Hatch has on him--and even to the more blatant flirting of young Violet. From a young age, he always wanted to go to college, travel, and see the world; however, he keeps having to postpone the fulfillment of these ambitions time after time. First, his father, whose drive to run what George sees as a rinky-dink savings and loan often confounds him, takes ill and dies suddenly, and the only way George can keep the Building and Loan from being absorbed by Mr. Potter is to take the reins himself. When Harry returns from college, he has a wife and a very good-paying job, and George releases him from his promise to take over the business. When he realizes he's in love with Mary Hatch, they marry and leave for their honeymoon right on the eve of one of the great bank panics that were seen during the Depression. With Mary's blessing, George uses their honeymoon money as seed money to keep the Building and Loan open during the panic. The intervening years and even World War II see George and his growing family in a tight struggle to keep above water and help the other people in town to purchase homes of their own. When a seemingly good offer from Mr. Potter turns out to be just another grab at the Building and Loan, George goes out of his way to show the bitter old man his contempt. With the war done and Harry returning home (George wasn't able to serve due to his hearing loss), George entrusts his forgetful Uncle Billy with $8,000 required by the FDIC. This proves a mistake when Uncle Billy loses the money, and George doesn't know that Mr. Potter has it. Facing ruin, jail and the stark thought that his life has meant almost nothing, he is on the verge of committing suicide by jumping off of a bridge into the river below. However, his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody, stops him, and seizes upon a remark made by the distraught, disbelieving George. Clarence then shows him what life in his hometown, Bedford Falls, would be like if he had never been born--a world belonging to Mr. Potter. When George realizes suicide is a mistake, he goes back to the bridge and utters his famous line, "I want to live again." He soon returns to his world, and the citizens of Bedford Falls come to greet him and donate money to replace the missing $8,000. Harry salutes him to cheers from all those he has helped.
  • He is known as a hero by having rescued his younger brother Harry from having fallen through ice, though it made him deaf in the left ear, and for saving his boss, Mr. Gower, from jail time, when he accidentally put poison in a child's prescription.

He is soon married to his childhood crush, Mary Hatch, but to fulfill needs of other people, he sacrifices his and Mary's honeymoon money. Later, he has four children, the youngest of which, Zuzu, is shown to be sick from a cold. When his Uncle Billy loses $8000 and George doesn't know that the evil Mr. Henry F. Potter has it, he is so depressed that he intends to kill himself by jumping off a bridge into icy water. So his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody, an Angel Second Class, jumps into the water, causing George to get him out. As soon as he wishes he had never been born, Clarence shows him what the world would be like without him: very terrible (revealing that Harry would have died, and that stopped him from saving people in World War II, Mr. Gower would have spent two years in prison, George's children wouldn't have been born, and Mary would have been an "old maid"). George realizes he had a wonderful life, and sadly begs to live again. He does, and even joyfully wishes a "Merry Christmas" to everybody, even to Mr. Potter. Eventually, he becomes the richest man in town.
