This is a bit of a festive post, inspired by watching It’s A Wonderful Life on the big screen yesterday. Nothing like seeing one of your favourite films back in the cinema! And a timely reminder that being a good, kind person is the best way to live . . . and can indeed be sexy. Jimmy Stewart was an unconventionally attractive lanky dork, but he exuded a winning charm and a beatific aura. According to Hollywood insiders, he was just the loveliest man ever and a delight to work with. Exploring his dark side during his later collaboration with Hitchcock was an interesting foil to his nice guy image, and one which worked spectacularly well. He produced some of his best work in this time. God rest your soul Jimmy, you’ve brought happiness to millions.
