It Was Never The Right Time: James Stewart And Margaret Sullavan's Heartbreaking Love Story
December 7, 2017 16:16
Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan made four incredible movies together. Their chemistry was so intense that fans suspected something more might be going on. To some extent, they were right, but the timing never seemed to favour the duo. And even though they had feelings for each other, their love story just never happened.
How they met
The pair first met when they were both starting their careers at the theatre company, University Players. Stewart and Sullavan's first husband, Henry Fonda, became good friends before they were married. They were all friends for years. And at one point, he even asked her out on a date. Sullavan once described this invitation as the "longest, slowest, shyest but most sincere" one she had ever received. However, Stewart was a bit of a player at the time and Sullivan was also a little bit out there. Regardless, they were sweet and gentle with each other.
