Anyone going to see IAWL on the big screen this week?  Cinemark is showing it nationwide on Wed.

perhaps my favorite ''everyman'' of film! and even as the Everymen he played in his movies, he showed that they could be heroes as well, and emerge victorious in certain situations, perhaps the best example being MR.SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON from 1939. one of my all-time favorite actors, and like many leading men he set the example in morality and so.

For jimmy to have four films out in 1948.Three films in 1950.Two films in 1958.And one film released in 1960,tells me he was feeling a bit middle aged by 1960.He was married and a father.And he was financially secure.He wanted to work in 1960.But he was not driven with the hunger like he would have been in 1938.No one remembers a film jim made called the jackpot.It is nestled between winchester 73 and harvey and the greatest show on earth.It is hard to imagine a man with his comic reach and light touch,but not quite rated as a cary grant,but a genius at comic timing anyway, go seven years without a comedy back in the 50s.

wow,this is the only pic that I can ever remember seeing that actually doesn't look like him.I'm wondering what movie this is from? He looks weird in a funny sort of way...like maybe he just had a close-call accident,or he drank too much.lol

It had to have hurt that cary was four years older than jimmy when North By NorthWest was released.Jimmy wanted that role badly.At any rate,I found a 1972 british film institute interview between jimmy and a joan bakewell in front of a live audience.During it,jimmy was asked if he would be interested in making a modern style thriller.Jimmy replied that '' There was a wonderful idea that I hope he will do.We've been talking about it.But I would like to work with hitch again ".By either may or june of 1972,hitchcock had frenzy released.By that time,jimmy knew that the jimmy stewart show was a flop and canceled.I could picture jimmy being very eager to work with the master and to get back into films again.My question is,what was that script ? Jimmy would not have taken second billing in 1972.At age 64,what story did hitch have in mind to star jimmy in when he thought jimmy looked too old at 50 for north by northwest ? It is too bad it did not happen.Jimmy also in 1972 wanted to do Streets Of Laredo with wayne and fonda.But that did not turn out.Jimmy also wanted to do a t.v.movie as a follow up to IAWL playing george bailey while frank capra was still alive.But the studio wasn't interested.Jimmy was suppose to do The Late Christopher Pike with carol burnett.But carol became ill.The man would have worked more if the projects would have came through.I think of all this as rather sad.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
