Who doesn't like Jimmy Stewart? Who doesn't watch It's A Wonderful Life at Christmas time? Who doesn't feel the desire to break into a lame Jimmy Stewart impression right now?
Go ahead and do it. I'll wait for ya.
Jimmy placed his prints in the cement in connection with the film Call Northside 777. Or maybe that is a phone message that I wrote on my "Jimmy Stewart Chinese Theater" notes. Maybe I had a Northside booty call I never returned. Shame.
Jimmy had his ceremony on Friday the 13th. Not one to believe in bad luck, he posed with a black cat under a ladder as part of the ceremony.
Perhaps the following conversation took place:
SID GRAUMAN: Hey that cat and ladder are some bad lu-
STEWART: Shut yo mouth!
SID GRAUMAN: Hey man, I'm just talking about superstitions!
STEWART: I can dig it.
