Sold for US$ 3,570 inc. premium
A Jimmy Stewart photographic archive of candids, most from the 1930s and 1940s
Comprising approximately 169 silver gelatin photographs, the majority of which are 8 x 10 in.; one Screen Life magazine, March 1940, with Stewart on the cover, and three 4 x 5 in. photos. Many of the photos have informational snipes and stamps on the reverse. Photographers represented and/or attributed to are Jules Buck, Charles Rhodes, Bob Beerman, Virgil Apger, Ted Allan, Frank Muto, and others. This archive proves that Stewart was extremely social in the 1930s and '40s, as he is pictured with a who's who of Hollywood stars including Ginger Rogers, Rosalind Russell, Claudette Colbert, Fredric March, Spencer Tracy, Harold Lloyd, Margaret Sullavan, Barbara Stanwyck, Jack Benny, Loretta Young, Judy Garland, Henry Fonda, Joan Crawford, Olivia de Havilland, and many others. There are also candids of Stewart alone, in the service, accepting his Academy Award®, and much more. Stewart's all-American films such as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) and It's a Wonderful Life (1946), along with his amiable "aw, shucks" personality garnered him a career of over 5 decades and the loyalty of millions of fans worldwide.
