Watch Jimmy Stewart get really creepy toward Kim Novak in Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece.
Watch starving actress Julie Andrews disguise herself as a female impersonator and confuse the heck out of James Garner.
Vivacious Lady (1938)
Jimmy Stewart and Ginger Rogers marry after a whirlwind romance. Now, all Jimmy has to do is tell his parents and fiancée.
TCM salutes the actor with 11 films. Here are some of my picks:
The Americanization of Emily (1964)
Directed by the recently deceased Arthur Hiller, Garner is a Naval Lieutenant Commander who’s boss (Melvyn Douglas) decides the first dead man on Omaha Beach must be a sailor. Julie Andrews co-stars in her only black-and-white movie.
The Thrill of it All (1963)
Though the film is a bit dated and sexist, it is still hilarious due to the two leads-Garner and Doris Day. Day is a housewife who’s life turns upside down when she is selected to do a series of TV commercials. In the photo above, Garner does not realize the family has just got a new swimming pool.
The Great Escape (1963)
Garner is one of the American POW’s in this true story of a group of soldiers who escape from a German POW camp.
