Remembering the late, Jimmy Stewart, on what would have been his 106th birthday. The Oscar-winning actor was beloved both on and off-screen and starred in some of Hollywood’s most memorable films. Jimmy Stewart had a gift at conveying human emotion in a very real and moving way. And the characters he played were honorable. He very often starred as the idealistic Everyman hero with a strong sense of justice and morality. ❤ My two favorites are the Frank Capra classics, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” and “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Do you have a favorite?
