Jimmy Stewart: American Star

James Stewart is a true American original. His aw-shucks delivery made him the perfect everyman in roles such as MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON (1939), IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946) and HARVEY (1950), but his ninety films evidence an astonishing variety of roles, from light comedies to hard-edged westerns and sophisticated dramas. One of the most popular actors of his era, Stewart worked with Hollywood’s best directors, including Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Ernst Lubitsch, Anthony Mann and Frank Capra.

In conjunction with the Wesleyan Summer Film Series, the Nicita Gallery features an exhibit of posters, photographs and moving images celebrating  the enduring appeal of Jimmy Stewart.
