9780061090677: Stanwyck: A Biography

Barbara Stanwyck thrilled millions in scene after scene, picture after picture, over a six-decade career that took her from an impoverished childhood in the streets of Brooklyn to the pinnacle of Golden Age Hollywood. At one tough and vulnerable, straight-talking but emotionally elusive, she electrified every production in which she appeared, from Hollywood B-Flicks to such classics as Stella Dallas, Double Indemnity, and televisions The Thorn Birds. She was an early role model for women dissatisfied with the standard Hollywood heroine, and a tantalizing challenge to men who wanted more. Her honesty and authenticity resonate even more powerfully todaybut her complete story has never been told.
