Happy Birthday Barbara Stanwyck!

Today marks the birthday of the iconic Barbara Stanwyck. She often played strong women in her films but she had the ability to play comedic as well as dramatic roles very effectively in such diverse films as The Lady Eve (1941) and Double Indemnity (1944). Later in her career she would go on to star in her own TV show The Big Valley (1965-69).

A few of her films I may try and see in the future include: Baby Face (1933), Stella Dallas (1937), Golden Boy (1939), Remember the Night (1940), The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946), Sorry, Wrong Number (1948), The Furies (1950), and Executive Suite (1954).
