Does Bedford Falls = Nutley?

Here's one of two stories published recently that feature Anthony Buccino's view of the bridge seen in Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life.

Does Bedford Falls = Nutley? by John Kampfe at Jerseywood.


One of the latest versions of the screenplay for the film was written by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. Goodrich was born in Belleville and raised in neighboring Nutley, New Jersey.

Buccino is also cited in an article by Barry Lenson and published in the Nutley Neighbors magazine January issue. 
Read Buccino's review of The Real Nick and Nora - Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, Writers of Stage and Screen Classics by David L. Goodrich.

Private Reading at The College of New Jersey

INK, The College of New Jersey’s creative writing organization said The Goods event to be held in the spring will bring poet, historical writer and journalist Anthony Buccino to perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, 2016.


Buccino, who has been awarded for his journalistic blogs, is a local writer from Nutley, N.J., according to Friedman. She stressed that by bringing in a local writer, “we want to definitely showcase what is available for students outside of the College.”

More information.


Please note that there will be no The Goods this semester, as renovations to the Student Center starting in April make it impossible to book and use the Rathskellar.
