Will Smith: The Pursuit of Happyness

Will Smith became big box-office Mr. Fourth of July, but moviegoers were always reminded of the dramatic range (Six Degrees of Separation, Ali) he could display. And Smith’s Best Actor Oscar–nominated role as Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness, a struggling salesman and dad who deals with homelessness during a career change, was an unforgettable notch on his thespian belt. Starring opposite son Jaden, Smith journeyed to places that continually tugged at the heart and spirit. (Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
