"Bush Narrates 'It's A Wonderful Life'"
By KARIN TANABE | 12/23/10 8:47 AM EST
Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life," is the quintessential holiday movie for generations of Americans. On Christmas Eve, it's going to take on a whole new meaning for the visually impaired.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the classic black-and-white film will be complemented by a detailed oral description recorded by George. H.W. Bush, when it airs on NBC on the Dec. 24. The paper points out that it was Bush 41 "who signed the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990."
Anyone who is taking in "It's a Wonderful Life" on Christmas Eve can switch over to the Second Audio Program (SAP) channel and listen to the former president's interpretation of the movie on simulcast.
Bush's recording will not only add another dimension for the visually impaired taking in the film, but as the paper points out, is also part of a fundraising effort by non-profit RP International to "help save the School for the Blind in Van Nuys, Calif."
You can see a clip of Bush recording the simulcast on the RP International website.
