Jimmy Stewart's Ladies Part 1: Introduction - The Sexiest Man that EVER LIVED

[Insert Your Favorite Form of Salutation Here]

By the way, feel free to request your own type of "hi" opening for my blog! I would LOVE to accommodate your salutation needs!

I am going to be writing a series called "Jimmy Stewart's Ladies." So far the movies I have in mind to cover: "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," "Shop Around the Corner," "Philadelphia Story," "It's a Wonderful Life," "Harvey," "Rear Window," and "Vertigo." I will be focusing on the leading women (not necessarily his romantic interests) opposite him in these movies, why I like them, what I find in them that merits discussion, yada yada.

I was inspired to make this series after I saw a Jimmy Stewart movie I had never seen before, "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." Loved it, of course!

I am a hard core Jimmy Stewart fan and will find it difficult not to only ooooh and awwwww over Jimmy Stewart, the man I love. Therefore I have composed this introductory part of the series, which introduces you to the man, to which the woman I will cover are all connected. He is my THEME.

This post is not much writing. Mostly pictures. The posts on the women, on the other hand, will be more analytical. This post is more to make my sentiments with reference to Jimmy Stewart clear to the reader.

A close reader might question my choice to call the series "Jimmy Stewart's Ladies," allowing for the man to be in the possessive, instead of, say, "Women Jimmy Stewart is Lucky to even be Close to" or "Women that Grace Movies that Happen to Have Jimmy Stewart in Them."

I did NOT for the following reasons:

1) Those Title Options are too Long.
2) All the Women have Jimmy Stewart in Common. I am also analyzing them with reference to Jimmy Stewart as well as Individuals. Why? Because that is how they are painted in the movie!
3) The-time-period-that's-how-it-was-then-that's-why-I-used-the-term-Lady-instead-of-woman-to-sound-nostalgic-culture typical reason.
4) Maybe I did it on purpose to draw your attention to the connotations such a title brings up, such as ALL OF THE ABOVE.

Jimmy Stewart was the highest army-ranking famous actor in history - until Reagan came along. Now he's second.

(P.S. I have been Roald Dahl's #1 fan ever since I can remember.)

I will now submit photos of each movie that I so far plan to cover, with him and the women that surround him in the movie (pretty much each one has multiple women, and several have multiple man for those women (not just Jimmy)).

I love how picture albums of famous actor stars being sexy with their various leading ladies always makes them look like man-sluts! XD

Women: The Crazy Woman

Jimmy Stewart with Women I'm not sure who they are or what Movie they're from:

Every sexy man is eventually cast in a role that requires he holds two guns in his hands, it seems.

James Stewart - the Ordinary Hero

I grew up with the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" and thus that is how I was introduced to Jimmy Stewart. This is a clip from that movie and it is an excellent way to meet him. Reader, Jimmy Stewart. Jimmy Stewart, Reader.

More Man-slut Montage stuff!

I actually have NOT watched the entirety of this video; I am a bit of a purist and try to avoid watching clips of movies I have not seen. However, I did watch the opening clip and I loved it. So, enjoy, if you so choose. :D

Of course, there are a million fan music videos on youtube.

I need to make one of these, except with Jimmy Stewart

  3. I think it's only fair that you share Jimmy with me. I'm just as much of a fan as you are. I'm not bragging, but have you seen every single one of his movies? I have. And have you been to his museum in Indiana, Pa. I've been there twice and can't wait to go back again. Love him, love him, love him!
