vintage.magic "At age four, a drunk pushed her mother off a streetcar, killing her, and two weeks her dad fled to work on the Panama Canal, leaving Stanwyck and her siblings as orphans. Her older sister — but only slightly older — took care of them at first before they headed to a series of foster homes, from which Stanwyck regularly ran away. At some point, she was released back into the custody of her older sister, by then a showgirl, and Ruby toured with her, learning the routines and becoming enamored with the lifestyle. She dropped out of school at age 14, took an assortment of shopgirl jobs, and, in 1923, at the age of 16, landed a semi-permanent gig as a showgirl with Ziegfeld Follies." #barbarastanwyck #rubystevens #stanwycksunday 2d

vintage.magic Born on July 16, 1907 as Ruby Stevens, "Barbara Stanwyck was a dazzling study in contrasts. At times sultry and sweet; vulnerable and tough; comedic and dramatic; joyous and tragic - she simply was one of the greatest and most unique actresses during Hollywood's Golden Era. She could play whatever the part required, whether it was madcap glamour in comedies like "The Lady Eve" (1941), tough-minded feminism in weepies like "Stella Dallas" (1937), or poisonous vixens in noir classics like "Double Indemnity" (1944). A working-class girl from Brooklyn, she became one of the richest women in the United States due to wise investments. On a personal level, she was wildly popular among her peers, yet died a virtual recluse. Most astounding of all, she gave some of the most unforgettable performances in film history, yet never won an Academy Award for her work. Like many an aging glamour girl, she moved reluctantly into TV in the 1950s and 1960s when her movie career declined, but became an even bigger star than she had been before. Barbara Stanwyck - an American original and the true essence of the word "dame" - like no other actress of her generation enjoyed a long, varied career in film and television while remaining beloved by her millions of fans." #barbarastanwyck #rubystevens 2d

classic_film_stars I have just finished watching This Is My Affair. I really enjoyed it - much more than I thought I would! Barbara Stanwyck was wonderful, as always; and so was Robert Taylor!
Anyone else seen it?

Normal clownwhorewarpaint
clownwhorewarpaint Watched one of my favorite films last night, "Stella Dallas". Go watch this one, I promise you won't regret it. You'll be crying like a baby. Barbara Stanwyck is a genius/goddess.
