Bob Anderson 'Wonderful Life' Actor Dies Aged 75

As a child actor best known for playing the young George Bailey in the 1946 classic "It's a Wonderful Life," Robert J Anderson has died from cancer. He was 75. He also had roles in the 1940 Shirley Temple movie "Young People," "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" (1945) and "The Bishop's Wife" (1947), among others, and after serving in the Navy as a photographer, Anderson became an assistant director, production manager and producer for various studios.

It's A Wonderful Life, which initially flopped, became a holiday favorite in recent decades after it started airing repeatedly on TV when the copyright lapsed in the 1970s.
