Never in a thousand years would Jimmy Stewart have considered being an actor…that is until he met the lovely actress Margaret Sullavan. She inspired a new direction for his wonderful life. As the subject of one of the great, unfulfilled love stories in Hollywood history, Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan had a complicated, but beautiful relationship. Jimmy owed much of his career to the feisty, yet secretly tender Margaret. She not only believed in Jimmy’s talent…but also in the goodness of his soul. Jimmy would need her faith in him as he faced an uphill battle against naysayers, manipulators, and a corrupt studio system that felt like it had little room for a starry eyed, stuttering yokel from Pennsylvania.
