The Unexpected City

And really unexpected voice…


Jimmy Stewart died in 1997.

So how could he possibly be voicing this new tourism spot for Fort Worth, Texas?

Yep! I just re-watched Liberty Valance, featuring Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne and Lee Marvin (what a great cast!) and that is definitely Jimmy Stewart’s voice on the Fort Worth, Texas ad.

Apparently, Jimmy had a special fondness for the Texas town and voiced a longer 15-minute narration for it back in the 70s, parts of which they lifted for this new tourism campaign.

Pretty cool.
