Yes! I forgot Rear Window. What a great flick!

Mr. Hobbs takes a vacation


Thanks. Thats the closest I could come to finding which movie it was on IMDB, although from the description I couldn't be sure.

In addition to all his Hitchcock films, especially Rear Window, I've always been partial to Winchester '73 and Flight of the Phoenix...BUT my favorites are It's a Wonderful Life and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. It always strikes me just how realistic the political tactics are in Mr. Smith, and just how relevant they are to present day politics.

Reading through some of the movies mentioned I'm starting to realize just how many Jimmy Stewart movies I haven't seen though and need to add to the list.

I felt that Grace Kelly was better the less she spoke.Good looking girl, though, especially in that polka dot dress in rear window.

Jimmy fan here as well.
My favorite may well be "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance".
That was a bonus because of Lee Marvin and John Wayne.

Stewart appeared in The Shootist as a favor to John Wayne, despite having a severe hearing loss that made things difficult on the set.

Agreed. Stewart's appearance in an already great movie made it that much better. A true gem that I finished re-watching only a couple months ago.

And Anatomy of a Murder was filmed in the Yoop and based on an actual killing that took place in Big Bay.
The Lumberjack Tavern is where the shooting took place and is still in business. Last time I went there I wanted a Cheeseburger. The waitress made a phone call and a few minutes later, the cook walked over from home and took care of it.
Welcome to Big Bay!

Top of page 2 though I agree it took that long.

Between that and his radio show "The Six-Shooter"...

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Stewart has been the Star of the Month on TMC. There are still a lot of his movies on the schedule here for the rest of November.

My favorite movie of Stewart's is "The Shop Around the Corner."

"The Mortal Storm" is another I like, even though I admit it's not a very good movie. It's about a family in the German Alps torn apart as the Nazis rise to power. Both Margaret Sullavan and Frank Morgan, who were in the Shop Around the Corner, are in it. Besides, it's oddly entertaining to see Robert Young as an enthusiastic young Nazi.

Thanks for the chance.


qxsoup - with mrmn50's blessing, I'd like to forward the DVDs on to you. My husband copied them off to our media server and it would be a shame for them to just lay around when I know someone else would enjoy them, too.

He may not be following the thread any longer. You may want to email him.
Nice gesture.
