Moving into 1949 Jimmy Stewart maintained his production level with two more films. One of them is the true story of professional baseball player Monty Stratton.
The year 1948 brought us a number of great performances from Jimmy Stewart. Call Northside 777 shows Stewart’s ability to work in suspense films. This film features Jimmy alongside Richard Conte, and Lee J. Cobb.
Watching this film is a wonderful experience. It’s got the feel of the great Hollywood studio classics with the colorful set designs and large-scale musical numbers. The music is no less wonderful than you would expect when you have Gene Kelly working with music written by Ira Gershwin.
This film is an amazing example of the many talents of Gene Kelly and many of the stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The dancing and singing are entertaining and done at the highest level.
In the Name of the Father Directed by Jim Sheridan Starring: Emma Thompson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Pete Postlethwaite When Daniel Day-Lewis
