Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is finally here! Once again, so many of you have been so kind in your comments. I feel so loved and really appreciate it! Your following just inspires me to post more and more. I hope I don’t run out of things to say!
In remembering a film class I took in college, I was so entranced by a certain actress who was in “Double Indemnity.” Barbara Stanwyck was so cold and calculating in her role as a woman who killed her husband for the insurance money. She was the reason I began to like old black and whites.
Barbara was born Ruby Catherine Stevens in Brooklyn, NY. When she was four, her mother was killed when a drunken stranger pushed her off a moving street car. Yikes! After her father had some hardships, she was eventually given to foster homes. She tried to support herself, through a series of terrible jobs, before she finally auditioned for some shows. The rest as we say is history! Barbara died in 1990 of congestive heart failure, and emphysema (see what smoking will do to you?).
Here are some pics of Barbara in her early years as an actress. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!!
