Trivia that mentions this person:
An American Tail: Fievel Goes West [1991]

    Farscape Season 3 [2001]
  • Crichton calls the Scorpius clone that resides in his mind "Harvey", after the invisible rabbit in the classic James Stewart film, Harvey. The name was suggested by a fan website.
    It's a Wonderful Life [1946]
  • James Stewart was nervous about the phone scene kiss because it was his first screen kiss since his return to Hollywood after the war. Under Frank Capra's watchful eye, Stewart filmed the scene in only one unrehearsed take, and it worked so well that part of the embrace was cut because it was too passionate to pass the censors.
    Made for Each Other [1939]
  • "Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on December 17, 1945 with James Stewart reprising his film role.
    Pot O'Gold [1941]
  • Jerry Adler, younger brother of [?] Larry Adler, taught James Stewart how to hold the harmonica and mime the playing for the movie, and was the person who did the actual playing of the harmonica music supposedly done by Stewart, who continued playing the instrument after the movie.
    You've Got Mail [1998]
  • Joe Fox's grandfather mentions that long ago, he briefly shared a pen pal romance with the store's previous owner, Cecilia Kelly (Kathleen's mother), and that they only communicated through letters. This may have been a reference to the movie's predecessor, The Shop Around the Corner, starring James Stewart and [?] Margaret Sullavan, or possibly the famous book and the movie 84 Charing Cross Road of the same name, with [?] Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins as a female customer in New York and a male employee of the bookstore at that address in London.
