Jimmy Stewart Museum Gets New Lease On Life

INDIANA, Pa. (December 24, 2013) The Jimmy Stewart Museum in the actor's hometown of Indiana, Pa., has a new lease on life.

The museum is far from Los Angeles, where more tourists would see it, and many fans who grew up during the era of Stewart's films have been cutting back on travel, but as the word got out about the museum's plight, donations began coming in, averting a crisis at least for the next few years.

Museum Director Timothy Harley said a San Diego couple originally from western Pennsylvania began making yearly $25,000 donations, matching what the Stewart family gives.

The museum highlights the movie career of Stewart, who starred in the 1947 Christmas classic, "It's a Wonderful Life,” as well as his service as a World War II bomber pilot.
