Jimmy Stewart hugs Dennis Larson and Kibry Furlong in The Jimmy Stewart Show (1971-72)

Warner Archive has been posting these stills from the Jimmy Stewart show and I feel like this one perfectly captures what I think the show must be like. Jimmy looks only half-convinced that any of this is a good idea, with tears welling up in his eyes as he reflects on the golden years. Meanwhile, these poor kids whose parents signed them up for their acting debuts in this dumb show are alternately nervous and terrified by this grandpa who’s hugging too hard, desperately trying to connect.
Jimmy, I’m never going to watch your show but I think I already know you were too good for it.

panicbeats:

“It was time to do the scene, and Cary said, ‘George, why don’t we just go ahead? If you don’t like it, we’ll do it again.’ So, without a rehearsal or anything, we started the scene. As I was talking, it hit me that I’d had too much to drink. So, as I explained things to Cary, I hiccuped. In answer to the hiccup, Cary said-out of the clear blue sky-‘Excuse me.’ Well, I sort of said, ‘Umm?’ It was very difficult for me to keep a straight face, because his ad-libbed response had been so beautifully done….Cary had an almost perfect humor.”
James Stewart, from Evenings with Cary Grant

Fuck yeah Philadelphia Story
