Jimmy Stewart on TV in the Sixties

I wanted to share a couple of funny clips with Jimmy Stewart I found recently. Both are from sixties-era television shows. The first is from Dean Martin’s variety show. Stewart attempts to show off his impersonations, which, of course, all sound like Jimmy Stewart (though he does do a mean Bette Davis):

In this clip, Raquel Welch does a sexy dance for Stewart, and the expression on his face is priceless. He looks equal parts thrilled and uncomfortable, but overall it's pretty sweet:

It’s wonderful to see how much fun he was having in his later years. What a great sense of humor.
