A (self imposed) James Stewart overdose9:14 AM
That's it, I've had it with lame movies. You know you've reached a cinematic rock bottom when you're watching What Women Want just because, hey, Mel Gibson is in it.
So now I'm focusing on classics, because you can't go wrong with them. And one of my favorite classic actors is James Stewart. I discovered he made over 90 movies and I've only seen a couple of them. I figured, why not go through his whole filmography? That will help me when I can't find anything good to watch.
The movies I’ve already seen are:
Wife X Secretary
You can’t take it with you
The greatest show on Earth
I'm planning to watch next:
The man who knew too much
The man who shot liberty valance
The big sleep
Anatomy of a murder
It’s a wonderful life (I'm the only person on Earth who hasn't seen this)
I’m still summoning the courage to watch his westerns. It's not just because I don't like westerns. He doesn't seem to belong in them too. I mean, put down the gun, Jimmy!
December is the perfect time for a James Stewart marathon. Take a look at these titles: Small Town Girl, Seventh Heaven, The Shopworn Angel, You gotta stay happy... There's just no limit to his goody-goodyness.
What are your favorite (and not so favorite) James Stewart movies?
