Jimmy Stewart is considered to be the best classic film era actor. He made a lot of wonderful movies but these are his top ten.
10. The Man Who Knew Too Much
Who knew you could know too much and that information would get you in trouble,
9. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne on screen together. Need I say more, Perfect.
8. Anatomy of A Murder
What is the truth when the truth is forgotten by insanity after witnessing something terrible,
7. You Can’t Take It With You
Academy Award winner for best picture and best director for Frank Capra’s work. He directs Jimmy to another amazing performance that is romantic, funny and charming in every sense of the word.
A different and difficult role for Jimmy. It’s a fun, family adventure filled with laughter and bittersweet memories. A touching performance.
A whirling mystery filled with intrigue and calculated confusion. Hitchcock directed Jimmy to an instant winner here.
4. The Philadelphia Story
He won an Oscar and Katherine Hepburn was nominated for one. Their on-screen chemistry and quick witted banter is golden.
3. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington
Our good old boy next door goes to Washington and actually makes things happen. It’s exciting and empowering. You go Jimmy!
2. Rear Window
Hitchcock loved Jimmy and we loved him too. He’s paranoid and brilliant in his paranoia. A classic thriller.
1. It’s A Wonderful Life The best classic film of all time. I could watch this movie over and over it again. It reaches everyone on a different level. It reminds you to appreciate what you have and not take anything for granted.
