Jimmy Stewart on NBC Monitor #1

Mr. Stewart appeared on the NBC weekend program, Monitor, many times. Several of these have been preserved and detailed in our book. The first surviving segment is from the broadcast of May 22, 1965. Like most Monitor segments, it received very little notice in the newspaper:


Stewart was interviewed by Hobart Lewis in Yuma, Arizona, where he was on location filming The Flight of the Phoenix. Despite this, they do not talk about this film at all. Instead, they talk about Shenandoah, Stewart’s Oscar, flying and big game hunting.
