  harrylime: yo <Opti> !

thank you for that and yes I love James Stewart too !

My fave Jimmy Stewart era is the Philadelphia Story Jimmy... cynical,snarling, knowing, but kind and well, Jimmy Stewart with it ! lol

Destry is just Hollywood magic which will never be seen again . And for me JS has never been better ... but be interested to know your fave films ..

  optimal play: Harry, putting together a Jimmy Stewart top 10 isn't easy because it's so difficult trying to decide what to leave out.

So many great films by this legendary actor.

Your top 10 is very good and even the few I left off mine are movies which I thoroughly enjoy.

But anyway, here's my James Stewart top 10, which will probably change from time to time:

1) The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

2) Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

3) The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)

4) The Shop Around the Corner (1940)

5) Rear Window (1954)

6) Destry Rides Again (1939)

7) Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)

8) The Glenn Miller Story (1954)

9) It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

10) Vertigo (1958)

You mentioned "The Philadelphia Story" (1940) which I also like, although I always think of Frankie & Bing's musical version "High Society" (1956) of that film.

Anyway, so many great films by Jimmy Stewart you could probably do a top 40!

<Optimal Play>

That's an excellent list and I especially like the one you put at the top of it.

NOBODY KILLS JIMMY STEWART'S BROTHER AND GETS AWAY WITH IT.

That was the tag line they used on an old movie channel I used to watch when they were showing a retrospective of <Jimmy Stewart> films.

You've got <N0B0DY> there for the very same reason.

Thank you <jessica>.

Yep, any western that includes Jimmy, Lee & the Duke, and directed by John Ford, can't go wrong.

<NOBODY KILLS JIMMY STEWART'S BROTHER AND GETS AWAY WITH IT. That was the tag line they used on an old movie channel I used to watch when they were showing a retrospective of <Jimmy Stewart> films.>

IIRC that would probably refer to "The Man from Laramie" (1955).

I don't know if it actually was the tag line for that movie, but that's what the film was about.

<3) The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)>

Sounds interesting, if somewhat implausible.

Yo <Opti> intriguing list thank you!

Why do you put TMWSLV first ?

I think Jimmy in the Philly story has never been better ... do you think ?

I like your number four .. but not so sure about your number three ?

Whatever. There is a very very strong argument for James Stewart being the greatest and best actor of all time.

  optimal play: Harry, I put The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) first for the following reasons:

1. Great story
2. Great actors (Jimmy, Lee & Duke + supports)
3. Great director (John Ford)
4. Great scenes (Duke & Lee standoff, Duke teaching Jimmy how to shoot, the showdown, etc etc)
5. Classic western

Great enjoyment!

As I mentioned, I like The Philadelphia Story (1940), but the colourful musical version starring Frankie, Bing & Grace is probably more memorable due to the catchy tunes. Of course the b&w with Jimmy, Cary & Kate is still a great film.

Yeah, in The Shop Around the Corner (1940) apart from Jimmy, I especially like Margaret Sullavan.

You might be surprised just how many people like The Flight of the Phoenix (1965).

In reviewing my top 10 list, I just realised that I left off You Can't Take It With You (1938). This film is a gem. I notice it wasn't on your list either, but it actually won the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director (Frank Capra).

Anyway, I agree with you that there is indeed a strong argument for James Stewart being the greatest and best actor of all time.

And I think there's a few of his films I still haven't seen!

  wtpy: Harry, Agree with Philadelphia Story, might be my favorite role as well, but did you forget about Harvey?

  wtpy: I saw MWSLV, when I was a kid, seven or eight maybe, and not sure I got all the nuances, but Lee Marvin, particularly in first scene when he stops the stagecoach and breaks out bull whip, impressesed me as being a very mean man.

Harry listed Harvey (1950) at no.10

Kibitzer's Café (kibitz #238039)

Harvey (1950) was another favourite I couldn't fit into my top 10.

Jimmy made so many good films.

Lee Marvin is terrific as Liberty Valance!

One of the best ever villains in a western.

<optimal play> I agree that <Harvey 1950> deserves a spot on anyone's "favorite" list, but I'd like to say that it scared the crap out of me so bad that it gives me nightmares to this day.

This is why little kids shouldn't be left alone in front of a TV set...

  optimal play: <jessicafischerqueen> Harvey is a "pooka" which is a hobgoblin able to take on the form of various animals (in this case a giant rabbit) and although it has some very funny scenes it is definitely not a kid's movie.

I'm gonna have to check out a good Jimmy bio. What I don't get is that pre war he was kinda easy going and post war he became pretty hard and tough..

Yet he made "Harvey" in 1950 was it ? lol

Anyway we've all got our fave Jimmy Stewart movie I guess but for me he's never been more my kinda "Jimmy Stewart" than in the Philadelphia Story... The remake was also pretty cool too I know! lol

Cary Grant and James Stewart had a rivalry and to see them together is cool ... and in that film Jimmy comes off best.. which when I first saw it kinda surprised me..I love Jimmy in this !

This sounds like an interesting Jimmy bio:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...

<Actor Jimmy Stewart was haunted by his memories from his time in the Air Force and suffered from PTSD when he returned from World War II>

The article specifically refers to It's a Wonderful Life (his first film back from the war) but even his portrayal of Elwood Dowd in Harvey could be interpreted as someone suffering from PTSD.

Anyway, the article relates some horrifying experiences which would certainly account for a change from kinda easy going to pretty hard and tough.
