Overview

This set revisits the magic of screen goddess Barbara Stanwyck (1907-1990) with six films headlined by the legendary actress between 1937 and 1956. 1937's Internes Can't Take Money casts Stanwyck as a desperate woman who turns to the legendary Dr. Kildare (Joel McCrea) for help getting her child back from the mob, while 1942's The Great Man's Lady casts Stanwyck as a 100-year-old woman who fondly reflects on her life and remembers how a key sacrifice that she made elevated her husband (Joel McCrea) to greatness. Stanwyck teams up with a pre-"Love that Bob" Robert Cummings in 1946's The Bride Wore Boots, a comedy about a bookish man klutzily attempting to win back the love of his horse breeder wife. The drama The Lady Gambles casts Stanwyck as Joan Booth, a troubled woman whose addiction to gambling threatens to destroy her life. 1953's All I Desire enlists Stanwyck as an older stage actress returning to the home and family she left behind a decade prior. Finally, the 1956 drama There's Always Tomorrow reunites Double Indemnity headliners Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray; Stanwyck plays a fashion designer with a very rocky romantic history struggling over her feelings for a married man (MacMurray).
