Top 10 Best Jimmy Stewart Quotes

#10

 

Well, I think he would top my list of directors. I think it's much more than enjoying working. I think Frank Capra, to quite an extent, is responsible for me as an actor. I think my work with him and just my association with him, I think a lot of it--he's responsible for the style, if it should be called such, that I've sort of developed. I think it's pretty much through working with him that I developed that style.

I sort of got into Westerns... It was a sort of desperation move, really. I had several pictures that didn't go very well, and I just realised that I would have to try something else.

I was going to be an architect. I graduated with a degree in architecture and I had a scholarship to go back to Princeton and get my Masters in architecture. I'd done theatricals in college, but I'd done them because it was fun.

To tell the truth, I've always been a little uncomfortable watching finished movies that I've been in, except the Hitchcock pictures, for some reason. Rear Window was like that, I was very relaxed and able to enjoy it ten or fifteen years after I'd done it. And Vertigo was the same thing, the last time I saw it I found it very interesting and really so truly Hitchcock.

I've always been suspicious of these people that say, we shot this picture in such a short time because we planned it completely and we rehearsed it for five weeks and we knew exactly what we were doing, and we came in and everyone knew what they were doing, so we breezed through this picture and it was no problem, and it's so simple. It's not that simple. John Ford always said that the best things that have ever happened in film, in American film, have happened by accident. He's rather an outspoken fellow. I'm sort of inclined to agree with him.

Hollywood dishes out too much praise for small things. I won't let it get me, but too much praise can turn a fellow's head if he doesn't watch his step.

--JIMMY STEWART

 
#4
 

I've always been skeptical of people who say they lose themselves in a part. Someone once came up to Spencer Tracy and asked, "Aren't you tired of always playing Tracy?" Tracy replied, "What am I supposed to do, play Bogart?"

--JIMMY STEWART

If I had my career over again? Maybe I'd say to myself, speed it up a little.

--JIMMY STEWART

 
#2
 

My father just didn't accept the idea of my being an actor. I think that's the reason he kept the hardware store in operation, because I think he was pretty sure that I was going to be found out sooner or later, and he wanted to have a job for me to come back to.

--JIMMY STEWART

Never treat your audience as customers, always as partners.
