The Pursuit of Classiness

Ask me anything   Submit   Tags Masterpost   

A blog dedicated to my favorite classic Hollywood stars and movies. A tribute to a bygone era. And a place for less-than-coherent fangirling.

If you aren't an Audrey Hepburn fan, you probably won't like it here...

Aside from Audrey, some of my favorite stars are: Joan Greenwood, Steve McQueen, Gene Kelly, Myrna Loy, Fred Astaire, Donald O'Connor, Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Tierney, Grace Kelly, and Lena Horne.

I also have a slight Edith Head obsession...

In Memory of James Maitland Stewart (May 20, 1908 — July 2, 1997)

“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, tiny pieces of time… that they never forget.”, via humphreysbogart.

There is a moment in “The Philadelphia Story” that was, according to Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart, improvised. It’s the scene when Jimmy Stewart comes to Cary Grant’s house and he’s drunk. And Jimmy Stewart hiccups; that was thrown in. You can see that Jimmy’s amused and Cary looks down and he was amused that Jimmy was amused. They almost broke up!

Peter Bogdanovich

THE GREATEST SCENE OF ALL TIME.

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.
