The Jimmy Stewart Show - unique
During the 1971-72 television season, James Stewart starred in his own television series. It only lasted one season, reportedly because it received poor reviews and ratings. Actually, we have found it to be very enjoyable, although it has the easy pace and style (perhaps too easy) of its star, and therefore may not have been entertaining enough for the audience.
This reportedly was the only time Stewart allowed himself to be billed on screen as "Jimmy." All his other credits were as James Stewart.
