If a western is a good western, it gives you a sense of that world and some of the qualities those men had - their comradeship, loyalty, and physical courage. The vogue for the new kind of western seems pretty unimportant to me. They try to destroy something that has been vital to people for so long.
Stewart was 49 when portrayed a 25-year-old Charles Lindbergh
in The Spirit of St. Louis
(1957). Stewart had actively sought the role even though the producers thought that he was far too old. He did this simply because he admired Lindbergh so much.
Soft-spoken, extremely polite and shy manner, with a very recognizable drawl in his voice.
