James F. Hawkins (born November 14, 1941) is an American former actor. He is probably best-known for his TV roles in shows like Annie Oakley, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet and The Donna Reed Show; and as well as Tommy Bailey, the youngest son of James Stewart and Donna Reed, in the 1946 film It's a Wonderful Life.
Hawkins retired from acting in his late twenties. He is the author of five books about the film It's A Wonderful Life and sits on the Advisory Board of The Jimmy Stewart Museum and for 20 years served on the Board of Directors of the Donna Reed Foundation for the Performing Arts. In celebration of the Frank Capra film, Hawkins and other cast members appear annually at the It's A Wonderful Life Festival in Seneca Falls, New York, the town thought to be the inspiration for the movie's setting of Bedford Falls.
