James Stewart's Screen Debut
22 September 2003 | by The-Lonely-LondonerSee all my reviews

The 26 year old James Stewart made his uncredited screen debut in this film having previously graduated from university and exploited the stage circuit. He was obviously an intelligent man with a distinctively American voice which kind of carved him out as an all-American hero.
