TCM Star of the Month: Barbara Stanwyck


Barbara Stanwyck is TCM's Star of the Month for December!

She is one of my very favorite actresses.  I have actually watched nearly all of her films over the past few years.

The first one I ever saw was Ball of Fire, followed by Christmas in Connecticut.  I then later began to seek out as many of her films as possible, which was really fun because she made over eighty of them!

Her career is a most impressive one, with varied and commanding performances in genres such as pre-codes, comedies, dramas, noirs, and westerns.

TCM will be showing over fifty of her films throughout the month.  Here's the schedule:

  1. What a wonderful actress, I'm so jealous right now because I haven't been able to see a lot of these films. 'The Gay Sisters' is one of my favourites, as well as the two you mentioned up top.

    Happy viewing!
