It's a Wonderful Life Denounced by FBI back in the day

...The FBI issued a memo about It’s a Wonderful Life stating that it was a communist propaganda and that “the picture deliberately maligned the upper class, attempting to show that people who had money were mean and despicable characters.”...

“With regards to the picture, It’s a Wonderful Life, stated in substance that the film represented rather obvious attempts to discredit bankers by casting Lionel Barrymore as a ‘scrooge-type’ so that he would be the most hated man in the picture. This, according to these sources, is a common trick used by Communists. In addition, this picture deliberately maligned the upper class, attempting to show wealthy people as mean and despicable characters.”...
