Product Information for "James Stewart - Donald Dewey" »

Manufacturer's product description

In this penetrating and riveting biography of one of Hollywood's most beloved screen icons Donald Dewey probes beneath Jimmy Stewart the conservative image and ideal to reveal James Stewart the actor and the man. Through hundreds of interviews and in-depth analysis of his seventy-five films the author assesses how the Hollywood man-about-town of the 1930's and 40's - Stewart's lovers included Ginger Roberts Olivia de Havilland and Marlene Dietrich - became the epitome of American family values who remained married for forty-five years; and how the studio-bred effervescent star of It's a Wonderful Life developed into the brilliant actor whose performances in films such as Vertigo and Shenandoah exposed a vulnerability unseen in his personal relationships. With many insights into the turmoil of his private life the artistry behind his cinematic craft and his heroic military record in the Secon World War Dewey gives us much more than a legend to love.
