9. I regret that I haven't seen that yet,
and thus skipped right over it. What's odd is that he appeared in 2 productions of it, playing the same role, in 1950 and 1972.

12. The main reason I like it is because one of the shots shows them...
flying over the old Carswell AFB here in Fort Worth and it's kind of interesting to see the city back then.

10. OK since "Harvey" got so many replies I changed "Broken Arrow" to "Harvey"
Edited on Sat Jan-24-09 12:28 PM by begin_within
so you can vote for "Harvey" if you haven't already cast your vote.

18. My vote for Philadelphia Story is tainted, I'm afraid.
Tainted because I've been in love with Katherine Hepburn my whole life...

22. Why oh why did he have to be a Republican?
It just doesn't seem right, somehow...

Doesn't change anything, really. I love his movies, and think he was a very appealing actor.

24. Being a Republican in his day was considerably different than today
I think if Jimmy Stewart were alive today, he would have a hard time remaining a Republican.

27. Anatomy Of A Murder
The lawyer Stewart plays in this was supposedly based on Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas. His courtroom scenes with George C. Scott are great.

28. Yep, that was a good one.
One of his dramatic roles that he could really get his teeth into that wasn't a horse opera.

31. Rear Window without a doubt. That movie is my all time favorite Hitchcock film
and one of my top ten films of all time. Amazing, amazing work of art, and Hitch's masterpiece.

33. I can't name just one!
Destry Rides Again is beautiful, funny pure young Jimmy Stewart. And I like Winchester ''73, too, which gives us Jimmy Stewart after the war, when he is toughened, not so idealistic, more inclined to cynicism and quick-trigger anger. I guess that means I see him as a kind of classic Western hero. Oh, gee, I love all his movies.

I used to be a big Brigitte Bardot fan when I watched movies a lot, PLUS I love Jimmy Stewart movies in general.
