  • Editorial Reviews

    Known for her passionate performances, Barbara Stanwyck was one of the brightest stars to ever grace the silver screen. Equally captivating in heavy dramas (Sorry, Wrong Number), lighthearted comedies (The Lady Eve), and dark film noirs (Double Indemnity), she is considered one of the best among Hollywood’s leading ladies. This collection of 6 rare films includes Internes Can’t Take Money, The Great Man’s Lady, The Bride Wore Boots, The Lady Gambles, All I Desire and There’s Always Tomorrow. Featuring co-stars such as Joel McCrea, Fred MacMurray and Robert Preston, The Barbara Stanwyck Collection is a glimpse into the career of one of cinema’s most enduring screen legends. Internes Can't Take Money (1937) Bullets fly and tensions rise when a desperate woman (Barbara Stanwyck) must turn to Dr. Kildare (Joel McCrea) for help getting her child back from gangsters. The Great Man's Lady (1942) A reflective 100-year-old woman (Barbara Stanwyck) looks back on her life and how her extraordinary sacrifice helped her husband (Joel McCrea) become one of the nation’s greatest men. The Bride Wore Boots (1946) It’s a comedy of errors when a bookish husband (Robert Cummings) tries to win back the affections of his horse-breeding wife (Barbara Stanwyck). The Lady Gambles (1949) When novice gambler Joan Booth (Barbara Stanwyck) bets it all – and loses – she is thrust into a downward spiral from which only her devoted husband (Robert Preston) can save her. All I Desire (1953) New scandals erupt and old ones resurface when an aging stage actress (Barbara Stanwyck) returns to her small hometown and the family she abandoned ten years earlier. There's Always Tomorrow (1956) In this romantic tale of passion, an unlucky-in-love fashion designer (Barbara Stanwyck) must decide if she should succumb to her feelings for a married man (Fred MacMurray).

    Barbara Stanwyck fans rejoice! Universal Home Video's latest addition to its Backlot Series on DVD is "The Barbara Stanwyck Collection", featuring six of her most rarely shown features films, some never before available on home video in any format. Each has been newly remastered for this release, and together they span a wide range of genres, making this collection a wonderful testament to Stanwyck's amazing versatility as an actress.

    "Internes Can't Take Money" (Paramount, 1937), earned its place in cinema history as the first film featuring the popular character of Dr. Kildare. Here he's played by frequent Stanwyck leading man Joel McCrea. This film was released a year before MGM launched its popular series starring Lew Ayres, and features Stanwyck as a mother whose young daughter has been kidnapped by a gang of crooks. In truth, the drama is rather tepid, but Stanwyck and McCrea play off each other well, and the supporting cast includes such stalwarts as Lloyd Nolan, Stanley Ridges, and Lee Bowman. At 77 minutes, it zips right along and is worth a look-see.

    Stanwyck had high hopes for "The Great Man's Lady" (Paramount, 1942), directed by William A. Wellman, with whom she had collaborated a decade before ("Night Nurse", 1931 and "The Purchase Price", 1932) at Warner Brothers. Its failure to catch on with the critics or the public certainly had nothing to do with her performance. She plays "the wind beneath the wings" of Joel McCrea, a pioneer turned oil man and politician whose successes are directly attributable to her "behind the scenes" efforts on his behalf. Stanwyck's character ages from a teenager to a hundred year old woman in this fascinating Western saga which features an outstanding supporting performance by Brian Donlevy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Finally some rare stanwyck to enjoy! April 11, 2010
    By Derek
    Verified Purchase
    I just had to put in my two cents about this collection. I instantly preordered it when I saw in here. I'm especially excited about "The Lady Gambles" and "There's Always Tomorrow". I have only been able to see these 2 films on old copied from cable vhs tapes I've had for over 10 years! There's Always Tomorrow has a wonderful sentimental quality because Stanwyck and McMurray are reliving the love they once had; it also has that wonderful Douglas Sirk direction! The Lady Gambles is great material for Stanwycks' passionate acting style. The set is worth the price just for the 2 Douglas Sirk films : There's Always Tomorrow and All I Desire. All I Desire also has that soft, sentimental quality you always get from Sirk. I will admit I've never seen the other 3 films, even though atleast 2 of them were once available on vhs. I'm looking forward to seeing 3 (brand new to me) Stanwyck films, along with the 3 I already love. Do yourself and the other Stanwyck fans out there a favor and buy this set! Hopefully this one will be successful and we can get a third Stanwyck collection released one day. Lord knows there are still plenty of her films as yet unreleased. For anyone taking note I'd love to have No Man of Her Own, The Other Love, The File on Thelma Jordan, Witness To Murder, and Blowing Wild on DVD to! Happy viewing everyone!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Stanwyck Collection June 6, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I am a huge classic movie fan, in fact almost exclusively and when I saw this newest collection of Stanwyck, I HAD to have it!! I was VERY happy with my purchase! Barbara shines through as you know she never fails to do. Whether drama or comedy, NOBODY comes close!! If I had to pick my favorite in this collection...I can't, Interns Can't take Money & The Bride Wore Boots are a toss-up for me!!

    If you even vaguely like Barbara Stanwyck, this collection is a MUST HAVE!!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Stanwyck is always fascinating to watch June 7, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    This collection is neither the best nor the most famous film performances of of the legendary Barbara Stanwyck. But all films are worth watching because Ms. Stanwyck is always fascinating. Each film has moments that only Stanwyck could create. So I can recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys the films of a very unique American talent.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome August 22, 2010
    This is a great collection of Barbra's work. Some of these movies I was unfamiliar with but I loved every one of them. If you haven't seen these DVD's you owe it to yourself to see them.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Stanwyck - A Hollywood Classic January 11, 2014
    Verified Purchase
    Barbara Stanwyck never won an Oscar for a specific acting role but was generally regarded as one of the most talented actresses to ever grace the silver screen. She could do comedy or drama or film noir with equal ease and with convincing portrayals in roles of women that were capable, confident and courageous. In the pantheon of stars, Stanwyck is indeed a Hollywood classic.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of rare films May 5, 2011
    These films are only available via this set (except "All I Desire"). For collectors, this is a great chance to obtain a batch of rare Barbara Stanwyck films on DVD.

    All of the films are wonderfully restored and the presentation of the box set is visibly enticing.

    This set will go great with any classic film collection!
