Favorite Classic Actors/Actresses #8 Barbara Stanwyck
nee Ruby Katherine Stevens
(16 July 1907 - 20 January 1990)
Why she makes the list:
She had a horrible childhood, but never felt sorry for herself. She was a tough broad, a talented actress, and more than one person’s favorite actress to work with.
Stanwyck was known for her accessibility and kindness to the backstage crew on any film set. She knew the names of their wives and children, and asked after them by name. Frank Capra said she was “destined to be beloved by all directors, actors, crews and extras. In a Hollywood popularity contest she would win first prize hands down.”
William Holden credited her with saving his career when they co-starred in Golden Boy (1939). They remained lifelong friends. When Stanwyck and Holden were presenting the Best Sound Oscar, Holden paused to pay a special tribute to Stanwyck. Shortly after Holden’s death, Stanwyck returned the favor upon receiving her honorary Oscar, she said, with emotion, “Tonight, my golden boy, you got your wish.”
Stanwyck’s retirement years were active, with charity work done completely out of the limelight. [Wikipedia]
