  1. Dear Tyler, I am searching permission for one of your images to use in a book I am writing. The image is George Bailey praying on the bridge, your image is clear and superb. Do you have any information how I can do this? I inquired RKO that has the rights but they do not have this picture and so they say they cannot give me permission for something they do not have? I thought you may with your training have insight others seem to lack. Thank you and hope to hear from you, sincerely, cherie young in Ohio

    1. Hey Cherie!
      Sorry for the long wait for a reply! Thanks for checking out my reviews!
      About the image, I don’t actually know. I found it using a Google search and pulled it for my own purposes. Most likely, I got it from this site: http://gointothestory.blcklst.com/2010/12/great-characters-george-bailey-its.html. I am working on editing my posts to include citations for where my images come from but I did not contact RKO to get permission. I’m afraid I don’t know anything about the copyright information – particularly when using it in a book.
      Sorry I can’t be of more help, but I hope you find the answers and if you do, let me know! Maybe one day I’ll be in the same spot and need the answer too!
