Hardcore Baseball returns for 2022, with Jimmy Stewart joining Matt McCarthy to discuss the upcoming season. McCarthy and Stew hit on their expectations for the Red Sox (4:00), the AL East (7:00), defensive improvements for the Sox (14:00), the Bogaerts and Devers contract situations (18:40), Alex Cora’s impact (33:45), and what Triston Casas could bring to the table (40:40).
When America looks in the mirror, it sees honor, respectability, and loyalty, and it saw the same qualities when it looked at Jimmy Stewart. Stewart was one of the first Hollywood stars to possess the everyman quality seen in actors like Tom Hanks today. On-screen, the characters of George Bailey or John "Scottie" Ferguson are larger than life, but the drawl and endearing smile made the Hollywood star portraying them relatable. Audiences felt like James Stewart, who they liked to call Jimmy, was the kind of guy they could invite over for breakfast. He was an average joe who just happened to stutter his way into stardom.
Funko is wading into classic cinema with Rear Window Game, a modern board game based on the classic 1954 film starring Jimmy Stewart and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The final product supports from three to five players and will arrive this summer for $34.99. At first glance, this all sounds...
Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant each starred in four Alfred Hitchcock films. They worked with the director an equal number of times, with Stewart appearing in "Rope," "Rear Window," "The Man Who Knew Too Much," and "Vertigo," and Grant appearing in "They Are Suspicion," "Notorious," "To Catch a Thief," and "North by Northwest." Stewart's collaborations were spread out from 1948 to 1958, while Grant's encompassed almost all of two decades, from 1941 to 1959.

"Rope" may not have been Hitchcock and Stewart's only foray into the fascinating realm of single-location movies, but it came with an added catch in that it employed the conceit of unfolding in real time. Hitchcock filmed "Rope" in long takes and edited it together so that it looked like it was all done in a single shot. For example, as one reel ends, the shot settles on the back of a man's suit to hide the cut. There were only so many times Hitchcock could get away with camera tricks like this, however, so the majority of the film plays out as if you're watching actors give a theater performance live on stage.
We made our annual trip to New York City for Broadway plays. This time, under very strict COVID protocols. We saw three musicals, and on Sunday night, went to see the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music hall. First, I was surprised that every hotel, restaurant and play checked...
It was kind of a funny moment. In this interview, Kristen Stewart is explaining how she’s been watching so many older movies lately (which it seems a lot of us have been doing that), to the point she’d even watch movies on her Criterion app to decompress in-between shots while filming Pablo Larraín’s Spencer, even if she could only get in 10 minutes at a time. I, offhand, mention The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, to which Stewart says she just watched. Okay, fun coincidence. Then Stewart mentions her love for The Philadelphia Story, which, I swear, I had just watched the night before this interview. It’s at this point we both kind of realize we’ve been watching a lot of the same movies lately and there was a lot to talk about. (Which gets us to Stewart’s love for Jimmy Stewart, to the point she’s incorporated him as the archetype for one of the characters in a project she’s trying to get made.)
Author Scott Eyman’s book is a tonic in these days of politics dividing the nation on almost every topic. He takes us to a time when two Hollywood stars maintained their long-term friendship in spite of differences that came between them including actions of their children during the Vietnam War. A very useful lesson for our times.
It is a Friday night, and a group of students are on their way to Brunzies. They hit the crosswalk button on the corner of S 7th Street and Philadelphia Street. “This is Jimmy Stewart,” the button said. There is no doubt that students have heard the voice of Stewart...

From 1973 to 1974, drama series Hawkins followed rural-born Billy Jim Hawkins solving mysteries in his own way. It ended up canceled after one season, but not before putting its star actor, Jimmy Stewart, right in the vicinity of his rising star of a fan, Sam Elliott. By that point,...
These days, Sam Elliott is a great American legend in his own right. Though without the likes of John Wayne, Gary Cooper, and Jimmy Stewart, we may never have learned his name. Those are the guys Elliott grew up watching, and unbelievably, he actually got the chance to work with Stewart at one point. It’s safe to say he wasn’t disappointed.
