Stewart was ‘honourable, decent man’ Continued from page 31 “Part of every Jimmy Stewart movie was part of what he really was: an honourable, decent man,” says a guide. Some of the posters and reviews remind us that not all of his ﬁlms have become classics. Sure, there’s Vertigo, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Anatomy of a Murder, Rear Window and dozens more that the critics and the public love, but he also appeared in some forgettable stuff. (No one remembers Art Trouble, You Gotta Stay Happy or Pot o’ Gold, do they?) The museum notes that when Stewart won
his only Academy Award, for The Philadelphia Story (1940), his father displayed it in the window of his hardware store for 20 years. The store is no longer there, but a plaque marks the site. Visitors also learn that Stewart wore the same cowboy hat in most of his western roles, and rode the same horse, Pa. Stewart, who died in 1997, visited his hometown several times, the last on his 75th birthday (May 20) in 1983. For more information, visit the Jimmy Stewart Museum website at jimmy.org. Mitchell Smyth is a member of the Meridian Writers’ Group.
