Brutality. Which is not really in James Stewart’s oeuvre, but there it is.
That’s what happened when TWO front runners got upset by, well, other classic movies. It’s a Cruel Life.
By just 1 vote, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance also shot Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. 2020, amirite?
And by 3 votes, Vertigo, just announced as the Greatest Film of All Time, gets K O’ed by The Philadelphia Story. Conversation in the previous Elite Eight might tell you why. Hey, conversation might continue. I’m neutral. Neither is a favorite.
But some Classic has to go through to the final. Will it be as expected, and Christmas will arrive right on time? Or will it be a surprise underdog? shotgunning it through to the end?
And what are YOUR Top 3 / 5 / 10 / how ever many favorite Jimmy Stewart movies?
Only YOU can decide!
