Jimmy Stewart “America’s Home Town Hero” A Biography

“Sometimes I wonder if I am doing a Jimmy Stewart imitation myself.I’d like people to remember me as someone who was good at his job and seemed to mean what he said.” -Jimmy Stewart

 Ranked #10 in Empire Magazine’s top 100 Movie Stars of all time, “Jimmy” Stewart was one of America’s most beloved actors. Stewart was born May 20, 1908 and today he’s considered a cultural icon, the embodiment of the values and traditions of America, all of which is best presented in the film: “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  

A tall, gangly, soft-spoken man, Stewart studied architecture at Princeton University but was talked into acting by long-time pals Joshua Logan and Henry Fonda!  His “aw shucks” demeanor served him well as the good guy, the shy guy and the nice guy in films like “Harvey”, 1950, and “You Can’t Take It With You”, 1938. 
Alfred Hitchcock turned him into a dramatic leading man in films like “Rear Window”, 1954, and “Vertigo, 1958. He also starred in his share of westerns including “Man Who Shot Liberty Valence” to “The Man From Laramie”. He sent his first best actor Oscar, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”, 1939, back home to Pennsylvania where his father proudly displayed it in his hardware shop for over 25 years.
This original biography film has been recently remastered complete with clips from Stewart’s most important films and interviews with the stars and Hollywood directors and Producers, now long deceased, who were his friends.
Jimmy Stewart Biography Film DVD for Academic Release $150. Rights include classroom screening and closed campus streaming.
