y Visit to Indiana, Pennsylvania
those of you who loved Jimmy Stewart and his movies, The Jimmy Stewart
Museum is a MUST! It is an ever growing project. A new military
wing has just been added about his service during World War II.
The people that came to meet me were wonderful. I enjoyed talking
to them and listening to the tales of those who had family members
that had grown up with Mr. Stewart. I feel that the folks who live
in this community helped give Mr. Stewart the foundation to become
the legend he was, and yet remain a humble and caring man. The Museum
is a window into who Mr. Stewart was and is a tribute to a man who
was loved by many people.
City Studios, Stage 14 where the actual It's a Wonderful
Life was filmed back in 1946. Pictured are the adult
Bailey kids (from left to right): Jimmy Hawkins (Tommy) Karolyn,
Larry Simms (Petey) and Carol Coombs Mueller (Janie)
and Chris "George Bailey" Collins
On a couple of side trips while I was there, I had the opportunity
to see a very remarkable performance by Chris Collins portraying George Bailey
in a one man show about "It's a Wonderful Life". Best of luck to you Chris!
