The Weekly Bleat: Jimmy Stewart & His Dog Beau

I’ve always loved the late actor James (Jimmy) Stewart.  I probably first marveled at his talent in one of the many Alfred Hitchcock films in which he appeared.  But, my favorite Jimmy Stewart film of all time is still the Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful life.

Most people are familiar with Stewart’s work, but if you’re not, I hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful and moving tribute he wrote to his beloved dog, Beau.




  1. I remember Jimmy Stewart from the classic movies. I love the way he mouths his words – his pronunciation is most unique and I think that is what distinct him from others and makes him uniquely Jimmy Stewart! Happy Friday to you and cheers to a great weekend ahead. Enjoy International Women’s Day!

  2. Just watched this for a second time. Jimmy Stewart was a brilliant actor, I’ve watched many a movie with him in, I have fond memories watching his films with my dad, but I agree, the best by far was ‘It’s a Wonderful World’. I’ve forgotten how many times I must have watched it, but it’s many. What a beautiful poem for his dog and of course, so well read.
