Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Barbara Stanwyck (1907-1990) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles.

Screen legend born Ruby Catherine Stevens in Brooklyn, NY, raised by her sister from age four, then to the orphanage whenever showgirl big sis took road work. Dropped out of school at fourteen and took on a series of odd jobs until becoming a Ziegfeld Follies dancer in 1923. Also a chorus girl at Tex Guinan's clubs, she got her Broadway break and took the Barbara Stanwyck name while playing a chorus girl for Willard Mack in The Noose (1926). Made her film debut in a bit as a showgirl in Broadway Nights (1927), filmed in New York, and followed with real Broadway success in the hit show Burlesque (1927). Had her talkie debut in The Locked Door (1929) opposite Rod La Rocque, and then appeared in a series of entertaining film titles including Ladies of Leisure (1930) for Frank Capra, Illicit (1931), Ten Cents a Dance (1931), Night Nurse (1931) with a nasty Clark Gable, followed by another three for Capra: The Miracle Woman (1931), Forbidden (1932), and The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1932), before starring in pre-Code era classic Baby Face (1933). She received the first of four Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her work in Stella Dallas (1937), followed by later noms for Ball of Fire (1941), Double Indemnity (1944), and Sorry, Wrong Number (1948)—she would receive an honorary Oscar in 1982. Other classic Stanwyck movie titles include Preston Sturges' The Lady Eve (1941), her last for Capra in Meet John Doe (1941), Christmas in Connecticut (1945), The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946), Titanic (1953), Executive Suite (1954), and Forty Guns (1957). Stanwyck moved on to television where she racked up three Emmy Awards, one for The Barbara Stanwyck Show (1960), and two more for work on The Big Valley (1965-69). She later won a Golden Globe for her supporting work on the classic ABC miniseries The Thorn Birds (1983) before wrapping up her career with three guest appearances on Dynasty (1985) that spun off into regular work on the first season of The Colbys (1985-86). Stanwyck was married twice, first to Frank Fay, then Robert Taylor.
