Today, July 16, 2012, is Barbara's 105th birthday.  Happy Birthday, Miss Barbara Stanwyck, born Ruby Catherine Stevens on July 16, 1907 in Brooklyn, New York. Where is the love, folks?

In my book dealing with Westerns, I deal with several of Stanwyck's contributions to the genre, discussing how other classic actresses just wouldn't fit in those roles.  Stanwyck seemed to fit on a horse.  She regretted never makign a Western with John Wayne, btw.

I know that this is not a classic film, but Barbara was FANTASTIC in the 1980s mini-series The Thorn Birds! Seriously, she made that series. Love her.

 I have covered 4 of Barbara's films on my fashion blog: The Lady Eve, Double Indemnity, Ball of Fire and Meet John Doe. Each entry has a review of the movie and an outfit re-created that you can wear from the flick. Check it out here!

I JUST finished watching her in Ten Cents a Dance, and it was amazing to me how she elevated the entire movie from fairly sub-standard fare to downright enjoyable to watch. I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone so I won't get into my favorite parts or anything, but I always have a special place in my heart for her early roles. She seems so natural. Plus the movie made me reconsider my previous position of not especially liking Ricardo Cortez. :)

I'm new to this group & would like to share some news about Barbara & Robert T.'s old estate. Their home here in Northridge which is known as "the Oakie Estate" has been purchased & will be restored and open to the public. It's a Paul Williams designed home & after she and Taylor moved out Jackie Oakie bought it. We've been hoping it would be saved from being torn down and the land that was their horse farm turned into a housing tract. And it was!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
