Jimmy Stewart got started in the movies in the 1930s, making his mark in studio-driven light comedies as a wide-eyed innocent. He earned an Oscar nomination for his defining role in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, (1939) and the next year he won an Oscar for The Philadelphia Story (co-starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn). Stewart also performed often on radio, but his career in both fields was interrupted by World War II, in which he served as a bomber pilot in Europe. He returned from the war with a distinguished record, and quickly earned a new Oscar nomination in what later became a holiday classic, the 1946 film It's A Wonderful Life. He appeared in dozens of westerns, including Destry Rides Again, (1939) and Winchester '73 (1950), and made notable appearances in the Alfred Hitchcock suspense films Rope (1948), Rear Window (1954) and Vertigo (1958).The portrait print has been autographed on the front by Jimmy Stewart with a fountain pen in black...................BOTH PORTRAIT PRINT AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
