"James Stewart: A Biography," by Donald Dewey. Turner Publishing. 521 pages, $24.95.On screen James Stewart played anybody's son. He was the vulnerable, unthreatening hero, kind-hearted and plain-talking, a voice of reason and common sense. His performances were characterized by a monologue he spoke in a slow drawl, every sound scrupulously enunciated, evoking the small town of Indiana, Pa, where he was born. Stewart created a stereotype of the quintessential American, nowhere better than in Frank Capra's "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" (1939)

Baltimore, home to the first received telegraph message (Samuel Morse, 1844, sent from Washington), the first umbrella factory in America (1828), the first Ouija board (1892) and - to note what really matters - the first baseball player to win MVP awards in both leagues (Frank Robinson, 1966) and the first Olympian to win eight gold medals in a single games ( Michael Phelps , 2008). As if that doesn't engender enough civic pride for any municipality, it seems Charm City, according to the Maryland Historical Society, can add another first to its list: birthplace of the American bicycle.

James Stewart was afflicted with all the earmarks of a has-been actor in 1950 -- his last few films (including It's a Wonderful Life) had been moderate successes at best, his acting style seemed hopelessly outdated to postwar audiences and good parts were seeming fewer and further between -- when he took a chance on a movie whose real star was a rifle. By the end of that year, Stewart was back up among the kings of Hollywood -- he'd crack the box-office top 10 for the first time and stay there for the rest of the decade -- and Westerns had a new star.

Infinity Theatre Company is capping its third season with a polished production of a largely unknown gem, "She Loves Me," continuing into early August. Co-producing artistic directors Anna Roberts Ostroff and Alan Ostroff present a musical with a large score of 20 enchanting songs. This classic romance premiered on Broadway in 1963 and is a perfect blending of music, words and story by composer Jerry Bock and lyricist Sheldon Harnick. Those names should be familiar: They created "Fiddler on the Roof," which arrived on Broadway one year later.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The running back the Jacksonville Jaguars always coveted was already in their midst. The balanced offense they always needed was there for the making.It just took a little longer for James Stewart to fit the feature back profile and for the team to see its vision of a stout running game through.Going into Sunday's prime AFC Central matchup against the Ravens, Stewart is the NFL's fifth-leading rusher as well as the focal point of the Jaguars' new-found ground game.Three years after he weighed in as the 19th pick in the 1995 draft, Stewart is finally measuring up to his first-round billing.

The formation: Pro left, offset I.The action: At the snap, both receivers take inside releases to make it look like a pass, then block off the cornerbacks. Tight end Pete Mitchell (83) blocks the back-side end while right tackle Leon Searcy seals off the outside linebacker and right guard Brian DeMarco blocks the defensive tackle who is lined head up. Center Quentin Neujahr and left guard Ben Coleman double up on the defensive tackle, then Coleman scrapes off to block the inside linebacker.

Vikings (8-6) at 49ers (10-4)Time: 9, chs. 2, 7Line: 49ers by 13 1/2Injury report: Vikings--TE Adrian Cooper (knee), RB James Stewart (fibula) are out; RB Robert Smith (ankle) is doubtful; LB Jack Del Rio (knee), TE Andrew Jordan (ankle) are questionable. 49ers--WR Nate Singleton (clavicle) is questionable.Outlook: The Vikings can still make the playoffs, but they're in a bad tiebreaker position because their division and conference record leaves them out in a lot of scenarios. They've also had trouble in San Francisco since the 1987 playoff victory that first showcased Steve Young to the nation.

BreakdownThe formation: The formation is pro left because tight end Derek Brown (86) lines up on the left. Fullback Le'Shai Maston (35) lines up 3-5 yards behind the right tackle, and running back James Stewart (33) is 7 yards directly behind quarterback Mark Brunell (8). Wide receiver Jimmy Smith (82) is split right and fellow receiver Keenan McCardell (87) is opposite left.The play: Most teams usually run this play to the strong side, or where the tight end lines up, but Jacksonville is different.

If he was always billed as "James" Stewart, why did movie lovers know him as Jimmy? James jibed better with his ethical authority and physical height (6 feet, 31/2 inches), but Jimmy suited the actor's down-home casualness and emotional transparency, his soft-shoe timing and his uncanny knack for spontaneous comedy- drama. He let audiences see right through him. Stewart could be a master of ingratiating wool-gathering. But he could also cut and sting. Few have approached the rage and anguish Stewart fearlessly plumbed in films such as "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946)

Ten noteworthy NFL items entering today's games: One Vikings -- Minnesota could finish with the most dominating run defense in NFL history and not make the playoffs. The Vikings are allowing 54.1 rushing yards a game, putting them on pace for the best mark since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. The Vikings also are in position to break the NFL record of 47.2 yards set by the 1942 Chicago Bears. Two Bears -- For now, coach Lovie Smith is using cornerback Devin Hester only on special teams and defense.

James Stewart -- The Signature Collection [Warner] $50 The title of this Stewart set is in itself misleading: It doesn't contain any of the lanky actor's signature roles, such as his Academy Award-winning turn in The Philadelphia Story or the beloved It's a Wonderful Life. But the six films offered are of interest. Though he's a bit old to play baseball player Monty Stratton in 1949's The Stratton Story, Stewart gives a folksy, charming turn in the true-life story of the Chicago White Sox pitcher who made a remarkable return to the sport after he lost his leg in an accident.

DisneyWar By James Stewart. Simon & Schuster. 572 pages. $29.95. Enron and Worldcom notwithstanding, I hold fast to several quaint and comforting notions about big business. I like to think executives attain their positions through merit and loyalty. I believe it's what you know, not whom you flatter. I believe CEOs usually have shareholders' best interests at heart and always keep boards and colleagues informed about important decisions. I believe Dallas and The Apprentice are not realistic portrayals of corporate life.

This Sunday, the Senator Theatre presents its annual Maryland Food Bank benefit showing of Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life (together with the wonderful 1951 A Christmas Carol, starring Alastair Sim). For decades, the exuberant comedy and affecting drama of this seasonal favorite has propelled audiences past its mawkishness and message-mongering. It's an ode to a small-town American life that no longer is, and possibly never was. It gives James Stewart the role of his career as George Bailey, the village good guy who never rises in the world because he's too busy giving a shoulder-up to everyone else he knows.

BreakdownThe formation: The alignment is pro right because the tight end, Derek Brown (86), lines up on the right. Halfback James Stewart (33) lines up 5 to 7 yards behind quarterback Mark Brunell (8), and fullback Le'Shai Maston (35) lines up 3 yards behind the right tackle to give the Ravens a run look. Wide receiver Keenan McCardell (87) is flanked wide right, and Andre Rison (81) is split left.The action: Once the ball is snapped, Maston fakes as if he's running a power or lead block into the line of scrimmage, then drifts into the right flat as the linemen fire out one step to show run, then lock into a pass-protection set. Brunell fakes a handoff to Stewart to freeze the linebackers and then takes a 5- to 7-step drop.
