5.0 out of 5 stars Another Treasure Trove of Long-Unseen Gems February 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
Hot on the heels of the successful 2009 DVD release of "The Barbara Stanwyck Show" - Volume 1, E1 Entertainment has gone back to the vault to come up with this second collection of Miss Stanwyck's outstanding anthology television series. Newly restored and remastered in association with the Archive of American Television, this new DVD set will include 12 additional episodes of the classic 1960-1961 series, plus a rare bonus program that was never broadcast!

The fact is that most of these video treasures have been unseen by the general public for almost 50 years. The series was cancelled by NBC after its first season - despite Miss Stanwyck's Emmy win for Outstanding Actress in a Television Series (lead). After a handful of episodes were rerun during the summer of 1961, the films were never shown in syndication, and for many years, most of the programs were considered "lost".

This new collection picks up with the 23rd show to be aired, "The Golden Acres", and concludes with the 36th (and last) episode, "A Man's Game", which was broadcast in July of 1961 after the series was already in re-runs for the summer season. Missing are episode 27, "Call Me Annie" (alternately titled: "The Hunter Baby"), which was the pilot for a proposed new series starring Peggy Cass which Stanwyck only hosted, and episode 33, "Triple C", a western drama in which Stanwyck starred with James Philbrook and Stewart Bradley.

Here's hoping the nine missing episodes from Volumes 1 and 2 of "The Barbara Stanwyck Show" are someday found, restored and released on DVD - but in the meantime, the fact that the majority of these wonderful half hours are now available is ample cause for her many loyal fans to celebrate!

5.0 out of 5 stars BARBARA STANWYCK SHINES AGAIN! April 2, 2010
Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed Volume One of the Barbara Stanwyck Show,
you'll be absolutely thrilled with Volume Two.
I was fortunate to see this series when it first aired,
and several episodes have remained vividly in my memory ever since.
One of them, "Confession" (shades of "Double Indemnity"!)
was included in Volume One, and now I am happy to see that
my other big favorites are in Volume Two.

Three of them highlight Stanwyck's wonderful way with comedy.
My all-time favorite is "Assassin" co-starring Peter Falk and
Leon Ames. There are so many things I love about this one
that I could go on for pages, but here are two examples:
the "no-stunt men" fight with would-be assassin Falk,
and the hilarious "proposal" scene with Leon Ames (every bit her
comic match). This one is worth the price all by itself.

Another is "A Man's Game", a tougue-in-cheek western with
top flight support from Charles Drake, and Edgar Kennedy (and his feline companion).
And the third is the unaired Little Jo pilot, which was later re-tooled into
"Dragon by the Tail" (included in Volume One). Frankly, I actually prefer
THIS discarded version to the more serious "Dragon" because of it's lighter
moments in which she seems to be having a lot of fun.

Although every episode here is winner, I am especially fond of "Frightened Doll".
She and Harold J. Stone were a great match (he was later partnered with her in
one of her best "Big Valley" episodes, "Teacher of Outlaws"). Their scenes
contain some powerful, close-to-the-bone moments. The same can be said
for "Yanqui Go Home", with Dana Andrews. "The Choice" and "High Tension"
are real nail-biters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice January 4, 2011
By JA fan
Verified Purchase
The stories are like mini-movies, well acted and interesting. Both sound and picture were clear, too. There are 2 DVDs with 13 episodes, including an unaired show, covering more than five hours of viewing time. This was well worth the purchase for one who loves both Barbara Stanwyck and old TV shows. (The same could be said of Volume 1 of the Barbara Stanwyck Show.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Episode "Adventure on Happiness Street" December 29, 2010
By Donn
Verified Purchase
The end of Adventure on Happiness Street seems to be missing; it finishes abruptly, no end conclusion by Stanwych and no end credits.

We are still on disc 1 and are really enjoying the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Showcase For Miss Barbara Stanwyck November 23, 2010
By Tee
Barbara Stanwyck's 1960-61 anthology series has long topped the list of "want to see" by scores of her dedicated admirers but it's been extremely elusive for almost 50 years. The Archive of American Television put out a collection of episodes on dvd which was eagerly snapped by Stanwyck fans and happily they are back with a second collection of twelve additional episodes (the remaining nine not in either dvd set are considered lost). This is a wonderful collection of 30 min programs that could be considered mini-movies with the 53-year-old star as fine an actress as ever with a notable collection of guest stars including Dana Andrews, Joan Blondell, Joseph Cotten, Buddy Ebsen, Lew Ayres, Peter Falk, Kent Smith, John McGiver, Jason Robards, Dan Duryea, Wallace Ford, Almira Sessions, Anna May Wong, Leon Ames, Lawrence Tierney, John Qualen, Edgar Buchanan, Charles Drake, and James Lydon. The excellent booklet contained in the set includes many rare photos from the productions and from the era of Stanwyck and articles written by Kate Edelman Johnson, daughter of the late producer of the series Louis F. Edelman, who is currently at work herself producing a big-screen adaption of her father's second series for Stanwyck, the more successful THE BIG VALLEY which will star Jessica Lange as Victoria Barkley. Fans of classic movies who aren't that into vintage television should love this set as much as old films considering the star, the supporting casts, and the quality and of course it's a must for anyone who loves vintage television. Hollywood produced a number of great actresses but no one ever rivalled Barbara Stanwyck in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Stanwyck Show
Nice series would have liked to have seen a few more young actors displayed instead of just her all the time, did see a young Julie London in one of the episodes.
