The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance vs. It's a Wonderful Life



James Stewart showdown! LIBERTY VALANCE has been a personal favorite of mine for years now, whereas I spent most of those same years cynically looking down on WONDERFUL LIFE. Having just re-watched, it though, I find myself favoring it. I might choose differently five minutes from now, though.

Jimmy Stewart was simply the master. What a wonderful actor and person.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance isn't anywhere near as memorable as It's a Wonderful Life. No contest.

It's a Wonderful Life drubs Liberty Valance. Easy choice...

Two examples of why Jimmy Stewart was one of the greatest actors to ever live. I'll take It's a Wonderful Life, but its close.
