    It's a Wonderful Life. For me, this is the far richer, more nuanced movie of the two.

    I think Casablanca is structurally a better film, certainly more cinematic and flamboyant.

    But, damn. The message at the core of IAWL, the performances, especially by Stewart. That ending always gets to me. A timeless classic.

    The poll has closed. Casablanca moves on and It's a Wonderful Life is eliminated.
