Wow, what a all star cast! Great jokes, and a great time was had by all!
Ruth Buzzy stole the show!
That is one movie I'd like to see. It has not been released on DVD in the US. It is available on VHS but at $36, no way! Cheers Hondo
At Amazon, new it's $36, but they have vendors selling very good used VHS for around $9.00. You could then transfer to DVD.
I checked, and Amazon.com has these and other Jimmy Stewart movies, generally for less that $10.00.
Taka, I think you are quite right! On the shelf to the right of the blue flag, it sure looks like an Oscar to me.
Thanks for that!
We have enjoyed him in the several Hitchcock movies (Vertigo . . .
Speaking of Vertigo . . . which we weren't recently . . .
I thought you folks might appreciate the following articles that relate to the 50th anniversary of the aforementioned movie -

Hey, we're up for a potluck double-feature at Stumpy's! Where in Texas did you say you are, again??
But like Murray indicates, the trip there is a little time and cost prohibitive. Lord willing, I hope to be in Abilene in a couple of months for the John Wayne Celebrity Rodeo (you anywhere near there, Stumpy?). I'm waiting to find the exact dates, and will post the info when I get it.
As to Jimmy Stewart, we do enjoy him quite a bit. We were on a JS jag a few summers back, when a local video store had a good mid-week special, and watched quite a few, although the only title we saw from the set was The FBI Story. We really enjoyed him with Maureen O'Hara in Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962). Light-hearted fare, to be sure. He certainly played a wide variety of roles in his career.
Thanks for sharing about the set, Stumpy!
I absolutely adore Jimmy Stewart in his own right, so to have him alongside John Wayne is a REAL treat ! How can you not like the man ?
Anyway, here are some links for this truly talented, prolific performer -
The Jimmy Stewart Museum
We, too, rank Jimmy Stewart right up there at the top with Duke!
It was wonderful reading about him, and what an incredible man he was.
Keith, the quote you shared, by JS about JW -Quote
He's like a mountain; he's there for us, etched against the sky,
and we know what to expect from him.
says it all, about both of them.Quote

His best friend was probably Henry Fonda . . .
Ironically, we have a framed set of photos and autographs of Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda hanging in our living room. We never knew these men were such good friends, it makes that all the more special.
