Of all the actors in classic Hollywood, none captured the portrayal of the common man quite like Jimmy Stewart. From the classics like “It’s A Wonderful Life” and “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” to his lesser known roles like in “Harvey” and “A Philadelphia Story”, Stewart was able to seem like a common man of the people, less aristocratic seeming than the Grants of the world at the time. Along with that, his style was impeccable, even when he appeared haggard like at the end of “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” A great man, and a great actor, and an appropriate first post, I believe.
