Description

The New York Times called him the "hesitant hero" whose movie portrayals of decent, idealistic and naive small-town Americans made him a beloved national icon. James Stewart appeared in some 80 films. He won every major award, including one Academy Award for his performance in "The Philadelphia Story" (1940). Today, thanks to rebroadcasts on national television every Christmas, he is best remembered for his portrayal of small-town banker George Bailey in Frank Capra's classic "It's Wonderful Life," one of the most popular movies ever made. The "James Stewart Movie Poster Book" celebrates Stewart's long film career by presenting rare and never-before-published posters in color from his movies. They include posters from his other best remembered films such as ''Mr. Smith Goes to Washington'' (1939), ''Destry Rides Again'' (1939)," ''The Philadelphia Story'' (1940), ''The Stratton Story'' (1949)," "Harvey" (1950), ''The Glenn Miller Story'' (1954), "Rear Window" (1954), ''The Spirit of St. Louis" (1957), "Vertigo" (1958), ''Anatomy of a Murder'' (1959) and more. 112 Pages/Color on White Papershow more
