It's a Wonderful Life Sentence

There's plenty of fun to be had
for men in a bachelor pad
Fast women and cars
Hot jazz in the bars
This Pottersville isn't so bad

Swinging single Jimmy Stewart gets Gloria Grahame in the alternate reality It's a Wonderful Life (Frank Capra, 1946). What else is the Pottersville sequence but a film noir nightmare?
