I am pretty sure he did his time in a bomber in WWII

thejcaulfieldJul 23, 2014

He sure dated some memorable beauties!

MSprincess9921Jun 22, 2014

I love how there is any woman on these list after he had married , he is very class and loyal man


Jimmy didn't win the best actor Oscar for "The Philadelphia Story." He won it for "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington," the second best performance after Al Puchino's, "The Godfather 2."

CraigSnyderMay 15, 2013

He was just one of the best actors to ever live.

LucyStewartMar 27, 2013

If I could choose a husband and true love for lifetime, it would be Jimmy ♥ It´s too bad he died when I was 3 years old. He was the best actor all the time. I adore him very much.

Notice how none of them are after 1949 because he married his wife then, who he never cheated on!
