James Stewart Retropsective

Written by Moss Hart and George S. Kauffman, the stage hit You Can't Take It With You was adapted by Frank Capra in 1938. Stewart tries, with not total success, to anchor the crazy family spinning around him. Capra also introduces a bit more Depression-era politics than Broadway audiences would recall from the original comedy. Lionel Barrymore and Jean Arthur co-star, and how. Next week: the GI's 38th annual screening of It's a Wonderful Life. (NR) BRIAN MILLER
