    James Stewart – The Third Greatest Male Screen Legend In America

    American Film Institute declared James Stewart as the third greatest male screen legend in the history of American Cinema who was an actor both on stage and in film. His proverbial acting was applauded and suitable for the portrayal of the middle class man struggling hard against the everyday odds. Stewart however was nominated five time for Academy Awards out of which he won for a single time and also won Lifetime Achievement Award.

    James acting technique was highly appreciated for its naturalness representing the middle class men truly on screen. As a child he shy and loved to spend time after school in the basement for making dummy planes and its drawings. He was brilliant as a student and wanted to pursue aviation; but at the insistence of his father he took admission in architecture in Princeton University and excelled as usual. At that point in time he got attracted to drama and music that eventually led him to what he stood for later in life.
