Have you ever seen a more charming man than Jimmy Stewart? No. I didn’t think so.
Not only a wonderful actor, known for his roles in such classics as It’s a Wonderful Life and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, James Stewart served as a pilot in World War II, initially rejected by the army for being underweight, despite wanting to serve. So, he went home, gained some weight, and was able to enlist. During the war, due to his celebrity status, he was kept in America, but after two years, his request to join the battle overseas was finally answered, where he flew in many dangerous missions, earning a good collection medals and awards.
While he could have stayed home and enjoyed his life as a movie star, he chose to put his life on the line for, if you’ll pardon my wording, truth, justice and the American way. Also, there was his face. It was pretty much adorable.
