I recently posted news of The Jimmy Stewart Museum being in trouble. I’ve contacted Tim Harley at the museum and he’s very receptive to any ideas, help, and of course donations to keep the doors open. Please visit the website above for more details, or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) me for additional info.
We can’t let Hollywood History die!
Thanks for the laughs…
***The Jimmy Stewart Museum is in trouble and help is desperately needed for it to remain open!***
A sad sign of the times, I’m afraid 😦
However, when everyone sits down to watch, “It’s A Wonderful Life” for the 1000th time this Christmas, think about the hours of joy and entertainment that Jimmy Stewart has given YOU over the years…an iconic American hero, he can’t be forgotten and lost to future generations. The modest museum is operated in his home town of Indiana, PA.

And, despite being a great visionary, Zemeckis obviously realized that those are some awfully big ruby slippers to fill!
That said, when will Warner Bros. realize the same?
I get the horrible feeling that the studio WILL continue to look for a director with an ego big enough to think a remake can improve, or even top, the original.
Career suicide? Yep!
Box office bomb? Yep!
We’re not talking about an adaptation of an “Oz” story here, we’re talking about an exact page for page remake of the original 1939 script! It should be illegal!!!
Tom Hanks recently turned down the lead in a “Harvey” remake, refusing to even look at the script because of the realization that no one, not even him, could fill Jimmy Stewart’s shoes. It’s a moral issue and I was glad to see that Hanks had the foresight and RESPECT to leave well enough alone. I was, however, extremely disappointed to learn that Steven Spielberg was on board as director! Spielberg?! Yep, Steven Spielberg!
What was HE thinking?
Don’t mess with perfection!
