You Can't Take It With You makes its Blu-ray on debut December 8 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

One of the most successful films of 1938, You Can't Take It With You was nominated for
seven Academy Awards, taking home statuettes for Best Picture and Best Director. Based on the hit Kaufman-Hart play, the story follows a man (James Stewart) from a family of wealthy snobs who becomes engaged to a woman (Jean Arthur) from a good-natured but decidedly eccentric family.
Synopsis: Academy Award winner James Stewart (Best Actor, The Philadelphia Story, 1940), Jean Arthur, Academy Award winner Lionel Barrymore (Best Actor, A Free Soul, 1931) and Edward Arnold star in this classic screwball comedy. Arthur stars as Alice Sycamore, the stable family member of an offbeat clan of free spirits who falls for Stewart, the down-to-earth son of a snooty, wealthy family. Amidst a backdrop of confusion, the two very different families rediscover the simple joys of life. Based on the phenomenally successful Kaufman-Hart play, You Can't Take It With You was directed by Frank Capra and won two Academy Awards (1938 Best Picture, Best Director). Now fully restored in 4K, this heartwarming and timeless classic is perfect for every family.
