James Stewart is seen these days as a Hollywood legend: an actor who has always been described as a decent man.
In his book, Elliot gives a detailed study of Stewart's acting career which went from It's a Wonderful Life to the darker side of working on Rear Window and Vertigo, and his close encounters with the likes of Ginger Rogers, Grace Kelly and Kim Novak.
There is a certain depth to Elliot's biography as he tells of Stewart's life in the heydays of the MGM studio and, to some extent, his private life.
This is not one of the books that dissects its subject, but rather describes life simply as it happened.
