James Stewart movies: 25 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ ‘Vertigo,’ ‘Rear Window’
James Stewart, more affectionately known as “Jimmy” to his fans, would’ve celebrated his 111th birthday on May 20, 2019. The Oscar-winning performer became famous for his polite, gentle screen persona, often playing the aww-shucks boy next door. Yet he also showed his range with a series of performances that found him playing against type. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 25 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1908, Stewart earned his first Oscar nomination as Best Actor for playing an idealistic young senator in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939), which firmly established him as the patron saint of the common man. He clinched his one and only victory the very next year for “The Philadelphia Story” (1940), playing a tabloid reporter who stumbles into the marital strife of a high society couple (Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant).
