* ActorAllusion: In the movie ''Strategic Air Command'', Stewart plays an Air Force Reserve colonel flying a B-36 bomber (later, B-47) who is also a Major League Baseball player. At this time, he was an actual Air Force Reserve colonel who was assigned to the real Strategic Air Command, while also being a Hollywood movie star.

* ThoseTwoActors: As was the case with directors, he frequently re-teamed with actresses - he was in four films with Margaret Sullavan (''Next Time We Love'', ''The Shopworn Angel'', ''Film/TheMortalStorm'', and ''Film/TheShopAroundTheCorner''), three with June Allyson (''The Stratton Story'', ''The Glenn Miller Story'', and ''Strategic Air Command''), two with Creator/JeanArthur (''Theatre/YouCantTakeItWithYou'' and ''Film/MrSmithGoesToWashington''), two with Creator/MarleneDietrich (''Destry Rides Again'' and ''No Highway in the Sky''), and two with Kim Novak (''Film/{{Vertigo}}'' and ''Film/BellBookAndCandle''). Oddly, he only appeared opposite his most iconic leading lady, Donna Reed, in one film (''[[Film/ItsAWonderfulLife It's A Wonderful Life]]'', obviously).

Stewart is also notable for making multiple collaborations with several famous directors from the era, such as Creator/FrankCapra, Creator/AlfredHitchcock, Creator/JohnFord, and Creator/AnthonyMann. 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).

* OppositesAttract: He was close friends with Creator/HenryFonda, despite the two having polar opposite personalities (Stewart was well known to be a gregarious NiceGuy, while Fonda was much colder and more emotionally distant) and political views (Stewart was a staunch Conservative, while Fonda was a New Deal Democrat.)

** He plays AntiHero roles in some of the Hitchcock and Mann films, and in ''After the Thin Man'' [[spoiler:he's actually the murderer.]]
** In ''Rope'' he's a StrawNihilist, [[spoiler:though he comes to renounce it.]]
* ThoseTwoActors: As was the case with directors, he frequently re-teamed with actresses - he was in four films with Margaret Sullavan (''Next Time We Love'', ''The Shopworn Angel'', ''Film/TheMortalStorm'', and ''Film/TheShopAroundTheCorner''), three with June Allyson (''The Stratton Story'', ''The Glenn Miller Story'', and ''Strategic Air Command''), two with Creator/JeanArthur (''Theatre/YouCantTakeItWithYou'' and ''Film/MrSmithGoesToWashington''), two with Creator/MarleneDietrich (''Destry Rides Again'' and ''No Highway in the Sky''), and two with Kim Novak (''Film/{{Vertigo}}'' and ''Film/BellBookAndCandle'').

** Perhaps Stewart's most iconic co-star other than Reed was Creator/JohnWayne - they starred in three movies together, toward the end of both men's careers.
** Stewart also appeared three times with his friend and sometime roommate Creator/HenryFonda.
