What movie plays the song What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong?
What a Wonderful World" was used ironically in 1978 radio broadcast of the last episode of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (first series). The song replaced the usual end credits as the two main characters, stranded on pre-history Earth, lament its destruction witnessed in the first episode. The song was later used for the closing titles of the corresponding television episode, and in the first teaser for the Hitchhiker's film, lasting only one stanza before the Earth explodes. In 1985, a part of the song was used in The Runner (Davandeh), a famous Iranian movie. It was included in the soundtrack for the film Good Morning, Vietnam in 1987, and, thanks to its newfound exposure in the film, it landed at #1 in Australia, becoming Armstrong's biggest hit there. In the film, the song plays over a montage of bombings and other violence (similar to the use of the song "We'll Meet Again" in the film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb ). This use of the song in an ironic way has since become something of a clichÃ© in film and television. Its use in Good Morning, Vietnam led to its eventual use in yet another Vietnam War themed fiction, Tour of Duty . In 1989, the Louis Armstrong rendition of the song was used as the opening theme for the pilot episode of the television sitcom Family Matters . It would be subsequently replaced by Jesse Frederick's "As Days Go By". It was also used in the film Without a Paddle , Twelve Monkeys , and the show Scrubs , in the episode "My Butterfly"."What a Wonderful World" in the show was sung by Joey Ramone of The Ramones. It was sung by Willie Nelson for the 1996 film Michael . A Willie Nelson version also was used for the "Don't Mess With Texas" anti-littering public service announcement campaign. The Louis Armstrong version was also used during a sequence in Michael Moore's film Bowling for Columbine , where it accompanies scenes of violence in a montage about United States intervention in international affairs, as well as having the Joey Ramone cover playing over the ending credits. In the 2005 film, Madagascar it appears as a background song for a scene where, ironically, various cute animals are eaten by other animals living on the "Wonderful World". On the program Pirate Radio (airing in Nashville, Tennessee, 1999-2001), an acoustic guitar version was used weekly as a music bed. It has also been used ironically as the theme music to the BBC series A Life of Grime , and as the closing theme to one series of Grumpy Old Men , in a version performed by the cast of the programme. The Louis Armstrong version was used also in the 2004 Japanese film Swing Girls during a scene where the main characters are chased by a wild boar. It was also used in the show House , in the episode DNR. It is also featured in the sixth episode of the BBC/Kudos 1973-set crime drama, Life on Mars . The Joey Ramone cover was also played over the ending credits of the BBC Radio 4 comedy series Chris Addison's Civilisation and in the commercial for "Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction". The Israel Kamakawiwo'ole medley with Over the Rainbow was featured in the films Finding Forrester , Meet Joe Black , and 50 First Dates . In 2003, "What a Wonderful World" was performed by Guy Sebastian when he traveled to the UK to compete in World Idol shortly after becoming the inaugural Australian Idol winner and recording his first album Just as I Am. This is an upbeat funky version of this classic song exposing Louis Armstrong to younger generations and Sebastian's performance was critically well received by the World Idol judges.  "What a Wonderful World" is a cover track off Guy Sebastian's debut album Just as I Am. Clear Channel included "What a Wonderful World" on a list of songs that might be inappropriate for airplay in the period just after the September 11, 2001 attacks. In recent years, the song has come to be associated with the Christmas season (although it has no holiday or seasonal content in its lyrics) and has become a staple for the "Father/Daughter" dance at wedding receptions. In 2006, XM Satellite Radio added "What a Wonderful World" to its Holiday/Christmas rotation, as did many terrestrial radio stations in the U.S. Numerous recording artists have covered the song for inclusion on their Christmas-themed albums, including Newsong and LeAnn Rimes. Also in 2006, a rock version appeared in the Suzuki New Grand Vitara television commercial performed by David Mills and Ian Wilson. The song has also been used for New Year's Eve in New York. A version can be found on the dance simulation game Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova . This version is by "Beatbox vs DJ Miko". Terry Fator performed this with his turtle, Winston, partly a Kermit version, partly a Louis Armstrong version, on America's Got Talent . r. The orchestrated Louis Armstrong version was used at the happy ending of Madeline . George Huff, Anwar Robinson, & Chris Daughtry each performed the song on American Idol . Nick Lachey's Cincinnati-based team of singers performed a version of the song during the Clash of the Choirs season finale in 2007. This song was used at the start of Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay . The Joey Ramone version played during Supernatural's episode What is and Should Never Be while Dean mowed the lawn. It was also used in the end of The Longest Day episode of Home Improvement where Tim thinks of all the memories he's had with Randy. A cover performed by Donna Burke, in the English version, and Louis Armstrong in the Japanese version, was also played near the end of the episode, "What a Wonderful World", of the animated Japanese show, Vandread. It was performed by 4-year-old Kaitlyn Maher on America's Got Talent in 2008. Industrial metal band Ministry (band) did a cover to this song as well, keeping with the sweet music of the original until halfway through the song when it becomes much more energetic and metal. It can be found on their 2008 album Cover Up (Ministry album) . At the New Year's Eve, Eve Show 2006 in San Francisco, The Flaming Lips, Gnarls Barkley, Ceelo, and Wayne Coyne cover "It's a Wonderful World". Sticky Fingaz made a version of What a Wonderful World that has changed lyrics talking about the life and dangers of living in the hood. It's on his album Blacktrash: The Autobiography of Kirk Jones. It was used for a commercial advertising the Disney theme parks and resorts including Disneyland, Walt Disney World in Florida,Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Resort Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, and the Disney Vacation Club This song was used as an intro for The Wonderful World of Disney The British satirical series Spitting Image did their own version of What a Wonderful World at the end of an episode as a protest about the state of the world and humanity in general by changing the title of the song to 'We Ruined the World'. This version was sung by a puppet of similar appearance to Louis Armstrong to images of war and environmental destruction. The song was played in a montage of the Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks of the 1999-2000 New Year's Eve in a CNN Millenium Special called CNN 2000. It was also played as part of America's largest fireworks display ever during the 250th Birthday celebration for the city of Pittsburgh on October 4, 2008. A parody of the song was played in an episode of the TV show Chowder. The Joey Ramone version also played on the 15th episode of the second season of the WB series Gilmore Girls. On the sixth series of The X Factor, a reality singing competition in the UK, finalist Stacey Solomon sang the song for her successful audition and again in the series final. She eventually finished third overall. Thank You, :-)
What is important about the movie 'It's a Wonderful Life'?
The Capra film was a popular Christmas saga that is essentially an inversion of the Scrooge plot. Capra takes some liberties, instead of being Smug, the businessman, a banker, is contemplating suicide in the Yule tide, is visited by angels rather than ghosts of the tenses of time, but there is much similarity. very little juvenile appeal. Most people who have analyzed both see (wonderful Life) as a modernized Scrooge.What the devils is attractive about human foibles, anyhow?

In Harvest Moon a Wonderful Life when your child grows up will you play as him and continue the game?
In the Gamecube versions, once you die at the end of the game, that's it. In the PS2 version (Another Wonderful Life: Special Edition) you can continue to play the game after it has ended. I'm not sure if this means that you just pretend your character hasn't died or you play as your child, but the latter would make more sense, so as an educated guess I would say you play as your child.
