    Why does the OP use some of the most medium-level of Stewart’s films?  Good grief.

    So here’s praise for THE MAN FROM LARAMIE, THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, THE NAKED SPUR, THE FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX, WINCHESTER ’73 and DESTRY RIDES AGAIN.

    And that’s not even mentioning Capra (IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON) or Hitchcock (VERTIGO, REAR WINDOW).

    Stewart takes it.

    Oohhh you had to pick two of my favourite actors. I find Newman to be more engaging, and he’s the better actor, but Stewart certainly has a filmography for the ages.

    Two iconic revered actors!

    I’ll just go with my personal favorite here and vote with Paul Newman. But if I flipped a coin, I cant go wrong.

    It has to be Stewart. Paul Newman was in some great films, but not quite Rear Window/Vertigo-level masterpieces. James Stewart is probably my favourite ever film actor anyway (I relate to his gawky integrity) and he truly subverted his screen persona in his mid to late career. His performance in Vertigo, for me, might be the most compelling and disturbing cinematic performance of the sound era.

    This should be Jimmy Stewart by a mile, IMHO. Damn near all the man’s films where iconic.

    king Paul is leading the poll by just one vote, so if there is more James supporters out there now is the time to speak up!
