James “Jimmy” Stewart

Age: 89
film actor

An American icon, Stewart will be remembered for his sincere, all-American charm and his slow drawl. Though often thought of as the embodiment of sunny American idealism, Stewart was also able to explore the darker anxieties of three directors with whom he became closely associated: Frank Capra, Anthony Mann and Alfred Hitchcock. He won a 1940 Best Actor Oscar for The Philadelphia Story and received four other Oscar nominations, as well as an honorary statue. He was a decorated fighter pilot in World War II and retired as brigadier general in 1959. Stewart's other films include Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, It's a Wonderful Life, The Glenn Miller Story andVertigo.
