For Eva....

My dear and luscious friend L'il  Eva has cautioned me (and rightly so) for my lack of Barbara Stanwyck coverage.  Like I need an excuse to gaze upon the wonders of Missy!

So here is a beginning to my amends darling:

Close Up

The Full Stanwyck.
Funny, I always thought the first shot was merely a crop of the second.  But what's this!  Slightly different angle of the head - and completely different background.

Anyway you slice it, she's a dish.

OK, that top picture of Barbara? Beautiful. I never cared for her acting - she was to "flinty", too clipped, too harsh. But the Bara in that top picture is one I could get behind.

Whether in the west, a pre-Code office building or on a burlesque stage, Stanwyck made herself at home. Unquestionably the most versatile of the classic Hollywood actresses, and in my personal top three overall (trailing only Lombard and Loy).
