1946 The magazine found Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life to be sentimental “but so expertly written, directed and acted that you want to believe it.” It took a while for audiences to agree. Before World War II, Capra was Hollywood’s master of populist fare (such as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington), but his first film after returning, with its triumphant performance by James Stewart as despairing good Samaritan George Bailey, did not resonate—at first. Capra’s career would never recover (he died in 1991), but the movie would become an American classic, as well as Capra’s favorite of his films. 1979 Newsweek profiled 52 American citizens and diplomats held by militants supporting the Iranian Revolution—an “arrogant defiance of the world community,” President Jimmy Carter said. Many believe the crisis…

pity the dishwasher

Members of the royal family of Sweden—along with 1,300-some guests—honor Nobel laureates at Stockholm City Hall on December 10. The prizes have come under fire in recent years for a lack of female honorees, but this year marked the first time female scientists won in both chemistry and physics. Canada’s Donna Strickland was feted for her work on high-intensity laser pulses, and American Frances Arnold for her work on enzymes. ■…

Anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray poses outside the Houses of Parliament on December 11. The protest came as Prime Minister Theresa May faced a series of embarrassing defeats amid growing opposition to her controversial proposal for leaving the European Union. First, she delayed a key vote after losing support from her own Conservative Party. Then she survived a no-confidence vote in Parliament. Seeking to salvage a Brexit deal, she sought help from EU leaders, only to be rejected. The divorce deadline is March 29. ■…

Since 2011, the country has been engulfed in war between the rebels and a Saudi-led coalition, resulting in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Starvation has killed tens of thousands of children, with one perishing from preventable causes every 10 minutes, according to UNICEF.

back to the wall

Central American migrants brace themselves as they wait for others to climb over the border fence into San Diego on December 12. Over the previous month, more than 6,000 arrived in a caravan from Honduras, seeking to escape poverty and violence. Tijuana’s mayor declared a humanitarian crisis. Many migrants face the prospect of waiting in the city for months before they can officially request asylum in the U.S.MOHAMMED HUWAIS/AFP/GETTY; OLI SCARFF/AFP/ GETTY; GUILLERMO ARIAS/AFP/GETTY ■…

they’re running

Trump could also face a GOP challenger. DONALD TRUMP’S UNLIKELY ASCENSION TO the White House shattered the conventional belief in American politics that not just anyone can be president—and it has made the chance to challenge him in 2020 open to, well, anyone.And so, even though there are nearly two years until the next presidential election, an immense field of prospective candidates is already emerging. They span decades in age and political experience, millions in net worth and across the liberal spectrum. Supposed front-runners shift week by week, jumping from billionaire megadonor Michael Bloomberg to anti–Wall Street socialist Bernie Sanders and even 46-year-old Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke. But despite their differences, the dozens of Democrats pondering presidential runs are united in the belief that, after their party’s success in…
