One of the joys of making gifs is screencaps such as this.


The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance | 1962

"This is the great thing that the movies have…the potential to really press things home visually—they come closer than anything else, the people can see your eyes…they can—I remember we were up in Canada, in 1954, in the mountains shooting a picture called The Far Country. We were havin’ a bawx lunch—the usual terrible bawx lunch—and this old guy came over t’me…nawdded at me. ‘You Stewart?’ ‘Yeah…’ ‘You did a thing in a picture once,’ he said. ‘Can’t remember the name of it—but you were in a room—and you said a poem or something ‘bout fireflies…That was good!’ I knew right away what he meant—that’s all he said—he was talking about a scene in a picture called Come Live with Me that came out in 1941—and he couldn’t remember the title, but that little…tiny thing—didn’t last even a minute—he’d remembered all those years…An’ that’s the thing—that’s the great thing about the movies…After you learn—and if you’re good and Gawd helps ya and you’re lucky enough to have a personality that comes across—then what you’re doing is…you’re giving people little…little, tiny pieces of time…that they never forget.” 

Jimmy Stewart, quoted in Who The Hell’s In It by Peter Bogdanovich

Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo’s nightmare sequence (1958, dir. Alfred Hitchcock)


Piotr’s Voice Impressions—Q& A 014 
14th set of voice impression Q & A. Featuring: Al Pacino, Vincent Price, Austin Powers, Jimmy Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, Emperor Palpatine, Gandalf, Michael Caine, Christopher Walken, Steve Buscemi, and Peter Falk!

His Buscemi is too deep and sometimes the Jimmy Stewart sounds a little too much like Christopher Walken, but his Vincent Price and Gandalf remain as flawless as ever.

Alfred Hitchcock receives a Screen Producers Guild Award from James Stewart & Cary Grant, as all three sport facial expressions worthy of any diabolical Hitchcock villain (via getty)

I once read an article about how Rope is all about anal sex. It was basically the greatest thing I’ve ever read in my life. Makes me miss the batshit insanity that is film studies.
