Summary
  • Barbara Stanwyck (1907-1990) rose from the ranks of chorus girl to become one of Hollywood's most talented leading women-and America's highest paid woman in the mid-1940s. Shuttled among foster homes as a child, she took a number of low-wage jobs while she determinedly made the connections that landed her in successful Broadway productions. Stanwyck then acted in a stream of high-quality films from the 1930s through the 1950s. Directors such as Cecil B. DeMille, Fritz Lang, and Frank Capra treasured her particular magic. A four-time Academy Award nominee, winner of three Emmys and a Golden Globe, she was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Academy
  • Barbara Stanwyck rose from the ranks of chorus girl to become one of Hollywood's most talented leading women, and America's highest paid woman in the mid-1940s. Callahan examines Stanwyck's career in relation to the directors she worked with and the genres she worked in. He considers both Stanwyck's life and her art, with successful Broadway productions and a stream of high-quality films from the 1930s through the 1950s, and her popularity on television in the 1960s, offering a close, sympathetic reading of her performances in all their range and complexity
