Who can be romantically linked to James Stewart...and how closely?
A true "regular guy," he genuinely disliked the glamour often basked in by Hollywood stars, avoiding expensive clothes and fancy cars.
His jazz and blues piano-playing skills were showcased in Anatomy of a Murder (1959).
Through the years Indiana has been something of tremendous importance in my life. It`s true there is something special about the place where you were raised-your hometown. I have found through the years during the times when I`ve been here in Indiana that almost every direction I look, and so many faces I see, immediately cause a picture to be formed of an event, a happening in my life that I remember well. I think the main thing that has kept Indiana so close to my heart is the fact that Indiana has been, and still is, the headquarters of Mr. Alex Stewart and his family ... My father has been almost fanatical in his determination to keep our family together-and he has done it. Time and distance haven`t seemed to have affected this headquarters in Indiana. I`ve settled down three thousand miles from Indiana. I`ve traveled to points in the world three times that distance. At times I`ve stayed away several years at a stretch, but I somehow have never felt that I was very far from here ... somehow I don`t feel that I have ever been away. - His speech at a Boy Scout Testimonial Dinner celebrating his fiftieth birthday on 20 May 1958
I have my own rules and adhere to them. The rule is simple but inflexible. A James Stewart picture must have two vital ingredients: it will be clean and it will involve the triumph of the underdog over the bully.

Actress Kim Novak has been diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing treatment, her manager told the Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.
The 77-year-old's condition was detected during a regular mammogram, manager Sue Cameron said. "All her doctors say she is in fantastic physical shape and should recover very well."
Novak's name is synonymous with "Vertigo," the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock classic costarring Jimmy Stewart, and her vibe is echoed currently in characters like Cara Buono's Dr. Faye Miller on "Mad Men." She appeared most... Read More
