Stewart is also notable for making multiple collaborations with several famous directors from the era, such as Creator/FrankCapra, Creator/AlfredHitchcock, Creator/JohnFord, and Anthony Mann. A mark of his image as an everyman was his constantly being referred to by the public (and this entry) as "Jimmy Stewart", despite the fact that he was never credited as such in any of his famous film roles, always going by "James" (He, in fact, hated being referred to by the nickname).

He fought as a pilot and squadron commander in the UsefulNotes/SecondWorldWar and flew once as a non-duty observer in a B-52 on a bombing mission during the VietnamWar (eventually promoted to the rank of [[FourStarBadass Major General]] in the [[HomeGuard Air Force Reserve]], starting from private), and was famous for being a NiceGuy, both in his film roles and in real life.
