    She was still a striking woman in “The Big Valley”, but WOW!, what a hottie as a young starlet! She was adorable! — YUR

    • If you get a chance check out some of her pre-code movies—they’ll knock your socks off, or just go directly to Ball of Fire (script by Billy Wilder, directed by Howard Hawks) and get an inkling of what she must have been like in the Follies 😉 .

  2. I’m always amazed at what a different person she looks like depending on her hair color. Some folks just look like themselves with different hair, but she turns into a whole other creature. Lovely either way!

    • Lovely all her life. I do have to read the two part biography by Victoria Wilson (A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907-1940) but it’s a time commitment—longer than War and Peace (I think)!
