James Stewart on Dean Martin Show

I had to share this one. I didn't know James Stewart was so good at making impersonations! See him do James Cagney, Ed Sullivan and... Bette Davis on The Dean Martin Show!




And here he is, on the Johnny Carson show in 1981, reading a poem about his dog Beau. Heart breaking.

He never came to me when I call
if I didn't have a tennis ball
...or he felt like it.
But mostly he didn't come at all.

Both are wonderful videos. Jimmy Stewart has such a unique and engaging voice. I could listen to him for hours. And he's such a great storyteller too.

Great clips. Jimmy Stewart was quite the talent. I remember seeing him do his impressions. I always thought he did a wonderful job with them.
