I had known that she was a tough gal but I was surprised about her extensive charity work. She was known to be a very strong supporter of women and their rise in the work place. It was common knowledge about her ability to pull her own weight. However, I did not know about her relationship with her son. When you stop and think about it though, it makes a lot of sense when you realize her own up bringing.
It was very interesting reading about her film career. I just had not realized that she had made that many. After checking, I'm honored to be able to say that I have seen every movie she ever played in. Barbara was a true legend in American history! She is definitely missed! Again, another great read from the Charles River Editors.
I found this 40 page booklet a great bargain. Stanwyck was not merely a terrific thespian, she was a terrific human being whom I believe was worthy of her stardom.
I'm sure William Holden still is thanking her for her assist to his career - read the book to learn why.
American Legends: The Life of Barbara Stanwyck is a great read.
Last we recall seeing her stellar performance as the Matriarch in "The Thorn Birds " TV Serial..
As always , Charles River Editors have done a great job in this bio of an American Legend, telling us everything we need to know without being verbose.
Good to read on a commute and be inspired.
I feel the author could have done a better job at making it more interesting. I feel it contained way too much information, at least for me.
