>> here's one that sounds hard to believe. when we think of its a wonderful life you think true american classic , right? but when it was released in 1946 , the fbi actually considered it to be communist propaganda . according to newly released documents, the feds felt the movie represented an obvious attempt to discredit bankers by casting him as a scrooge type so he would be the most hated man in the victim but in 1947 one critic said it's a poignant tale that proves money could be used for bad and good.
>> so it was on the fbi propaganda list?
>> yeah. unbelievable.
>> i have to watch the movie.
>> dylan has never seen it's a wonderful life .
