Barbara Stanwyck on screen was down-to-earth, accomplished, and self-assured. She was immediately home in any milieu and in any costume, though dry and perhaps somewhat cynical. With Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, she makes a Hollywood triumvirate of "strong" women. Like them, in a couple of films she was menaced, the frightened heroine, but it was unlikely casting. Barbara was in her element running the show, directing traffic. She was/is an incomparably better actress than Crawford, and she measures up to Davis at her best. But she was never as bad as Davis got in some of her late 1960s horror cycle of films. I fact, she never gave a bad performance. Barbara remains a one-of-a-kind breed. Unlike most major stars, she has never been subject to temperament on the sound stage and has remained throughout the years one of the most liked and respected players on film sets. Barbara Stanwyck has rarely sunk to self-caricature. As a matter of fact, her professional posture is to tough, honest, and and self-styled to be a carbon-copied easily or successfully (Her one professional vulnerability is her cultivated diction which wavers incongruously back into Brooklynese enunciation on occasion. As an acclaimed actress, Barbara learned to be successful and to survived required adapting with times. During her decades on screen, she altered her image to suit changing taste. But through it all Barbara has remained and individual. Reliable Stanwyck made her movie reputation in the 1930s as the self-sufficient miss who by hock or by crook will make it on her own if need be. Perhaps the penultimate Stanwyck performance of her early cinema years was the much-censored Baby Face (1933, Warner Brothers). If anything supercharged Barbara's screen career in the late 1930s it was her romance and marriage to MGM's handsome screen idol Robert Taylor. It demonstrated to moviegoers that off screen Stanwyck had a definite sexuality and desirability about her, qualities which frequently eluded the camera in her film roles. Most, veteran moviegoers think of Stanwyck in terms of being ultimate screen noir dames. Double Indemnity (1944, Paramount Pictures), And The Strange Of Lover's Of Martha Ivers (1946, Paramount Pictures) are excellent examples of this stereotyping. Devotees of this type of Stanwyck performance relish her machine-gun delivery of vituperative dialogue, with an insolent character who delivers everything with relish and extreme credibility. But there is also Stanwyck the light-hearted comedienne, who could shine in Preston Sturges' witty The Lady Eve (1941, Paramount Pictures), or radiate as an amusing broad in Ball Of Fire (1941, RKO), and Lady Of Burlesque (1943, United Artists). And what of the romantic Stanwyck, the heroine of Remember The Night (1940, Paramount Pictures ), Christmas In Connecticut (1945, Warner Brothers), and the ultimate in women's films My Reputation (1946, Warner Brothers). In the 1950s, when movie roles became fewer (or non-ex-existent). For mature stars of Barbara's magnitude, she readily accepted assignments in lesser films. In this period, she went through a series of Westerns, a genre she always preferred since the days of Annie Oakley (1936, RKO) and Union Pacific (1939, Paramount Pictures). Once again she demonstrated how integrity of performance, uniqueness, of manner (her lioness like, prowling walk; her snarling delivery of dialogue), and expert stunting ability could make even the best plausible quickie Western film interesting to the viewer. Although she had tried her luck with an anthology series in 1960, it was the hour-long program, "The Big Valley" (1964-1969), which brought her renewed popularity, a good many awards, and a chance to demonstrate her mettle against the new breed of generally marshmallow performers. Truly, Barbara Stanwyck is in every way exemplary of the term "Legend.
