The Films

Annie Oakley (1935)
Over a decade before the story of "sure-shot" Annie Oakley served as the basis for Irving Berlin's hit Broadway musical starring Ethel Merman, it was Barbara Stanwyck who first took on the film role of the famous female wild-west show sharpshooter.

East Side, West Side (1949)
Stanwyck shines as a devoted Manhattan wife who has trouble holding on to her husband (James Mason) after he has been hopelessly seduced by a beautiful and bold vixen, played with shameless sensuality by the captivating Ava Gardner.

Executive Suite (1954)
Barbara Stanwyck is reunited with William Holden (her life-long friend, and co-star in 1939's Golden Boy) in this landmark, all-star film which gave a new definition to the term "Boardroom Drama."

My Reputation (1946)
This is a classic 1940s Warner Bros. "woman's picture," with Stanwyck taking on the kind of role she was most famous for.

To Please A Lady (1950)
In To Please A Lady, Barbara Stanwyck co-stars for the second time with the King of Hollywood...Clark Gable. This reunion is an exciting saga set against the backdrop of auto racing.

Jeopardy (1953)
A fast-paced thriller filled with suspense, Jeopardy gave Stanwyck a plum role to exhibit her talent for being terrified. Most of this is due to the extraordinary talents of its then-young and up-and-coming director, the masterful John Sturges.
