Jimmy Stewart's hometown, Indiana, Pa., will celebrate the centenary of his birth Saturday.

The actor who played George Bailey, Elwood P. Dowd, Glenn Miller and Wyatt Earp would have turned 100 this week. Stewart died in 1997.

Centennial Festival Day on Saturday will center around the Indiana County courthouse and Jimmy Stewart Museum. The museum, which opened in 1995, attracts about 10,000 visitors annually and is the county's main tourist attraction.
