THE LADY EVE (1941)—Stanwyck is a cardsharp and con artist who woos the shy heir to the Pike Ale Fortune (Henry Fonda) in an attempt to fleece him in this hilarious screwball comedy of double dealing and mistaken identities directed by Preston Sturges (The Palm Beach Story, 1942).
DOUBLE INDEMNITY (1944)—“How could I have known that murder can sometimes smell like honeysuckle?” Fred MacMurray is an insurance agent and Stanwyck the woman who seduces him off the straight and narrow in this film noir directed by Billy Wilder (Sunset Blvd., 1950) and written by Raymond Chandler.
ALL I DESIRE (1953)—Stanwyck revisits parts of her own life story in this powerful melodrama from director Douglas Sirk (Imitation of Life, 1959) about a woman who abandons her family for a life on stage. Maureen O’Sullivan costars.
THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW (1956)—Stanwyck and Fred MacMurry reunite in this Douglas Sirk melodrama about a toy executive who suffers the indifference of his wife (Joan Bennett) before rekindling a flame with a former love (Stanwyck).
