Jimmy Stewart is my favourite actor and this is his best film
I must have seen this film 10 times and every time it leaves a lump in my throat, its something about Jimmy Stewarts acting and the storyline that I find so believable and so sad. The three scenes that really get me are when he speaks about his missing son being the apple of his eye, when he confronts the soldier who accidentally shoots his son and most of all the final scene in the Church. I know some people may find the film sentimental but I just feel that its the best ever , even better than Its A Wonderful Life. I think as you get older and you have your own family the things that J Stewart say have real meaning and therefore I recommend anyone with a soul to watch this film and enjoy a sentimental but ultimately uplifting film
