James Stewart biography


James Stewart (James Maitland Stewart) was born May 20, 1908, in Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA. He was an American film actor.

With his stuttering, eager line delivery, and shy sincerity, Stewart personified the folksy American everyday hero in films such as You Can't Take It With You (1938) and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). It's a Wonderful Life (1946).

In the 1950s, a darker, more complex side of his talent was seen in westerns such as The Naked Spur (1953) and The Man From Laramie (1955), in Hitchcock's Rear Window (1954) and Vertigo (1958) and humorous ambiguity in John Ford's Two Rode Together (1961) and Cheyenne Autumn (1964).

Stewart won an Oscar for her role in The Philadelphia Story (1940). Among his other films is The Shop Around the Corner (1940), Harvey (1950), The Glenn Miller Story (1954), Anatomy of a Murder (1959), and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962).

Died July 2, 1997, in Beverly Hills, California, USA.
