Tribute to James “Jimmy” Stewart

Tribute to James “Jimmy” Stewart

James Stewart, what a wonderful actor he was.

He mastered innocence in all of his characters and made you fall in love with him each time.  He was funny and handsome and accomplished so much in his long career.  I have seen many of his films and would have recommended prior to Easter a film that is one of my favorites from him.

Harvey (1950)

Elwood P. Dowd is a mild-mannered, friendly  man, who has an invisible friend resembling a 6-foot rabbit.  This movie is a crackup when he confuses everyone around him and the typical Jimmy Stewart antics follow suit.

Now everyone, even none classic film lovers knows Jimmy Stewart for the movie, “Its a Wonderful Life”. There is so much more to this actor that I suggest digging deeper into his career.  He is a fun actor to follow as his movies allow him to shine and this always involved some sort of comedy and a little crazy!

Another fun movie of his that I would suggest is:

Pot O’ Gold (1941)

Jimmy, the owner of a failed music shop, goes to work with his uncle, the owner of a food factory. Before he gets there, he befriends an Irish family who happens to be his uncle’s worst enemy because of their love for music and in-house band who constantly practices. Soon, Jimmy finds himself trying to help the band by getting them gigs and trying to reconcile the family with his uncle, an avid music-hater, all while winning the heart of the beautiful Molly!
