Jimmy Stewart Reading A Poem About His Dog On The Tonight Show Will Melt Your Heart

Beloved and legendary actor, Jimmy Stewart, is best remembered for his work in The Philadelphia Story and It’s a Wonderful Life, but my favorite Jimmy Stewart performance occurred on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. The actor was always a dog lover. In an interview with author, Stanley Coren, the Hollywood icon said, “The truth is that it’s just really hard for me to get to sleep without a dog in my bedroom.” And in 1981, Mr. Stewart decided to share a poem he wrote about his “willful but beloved” golden retriever, Beau.

I can’t imagine there was a dry eye in the whole studio.
