In 1946 Stewart starred as George Bailey in the Capra Christmas classic It's a Wonderful Life, his most recognized role, earning another Oscar nomination. He expanded his acting roles during his later career to include more flawed and disillusioned characters in films by Alfred Hitchcock and Anthony Mann. Among his nine films with Mann are Winchester '73 (1950) and The Naked Spur (1953), while amongst his four films with Hitchcock came Rope (1948), Rear Window (1954), with Grace Kelly, and Vertigo (1958). Vertigo was unenthusiastically received at its time of release, but has since been reevaluated as an American cinematic masterpiece. Stewart's other later prominent roles included the comedy-drama Harvey (1950) and the courtroom drama Anatomy of a Murder (1959), both of which landed him Academy Award nominations, and westerns such as The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) and Cheyenne Autumn (1964), both directed by John Ford.
