Description
Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment proudly present TCM Showcase: Barbara Stanwyck, a brand new collection highlighting the career of this tough and versatile actress. In her 60 years on screen, stage and television Stanwyck distinguished herself as one of Hollywood’s most multitalented actresses, starting as a dancer before excelling in both dramatic and comedic roles with her ability to portray femme fatales, wisecracking broads and madcap con artists. She also worked with some of Hollywood’s finest directors, including Preston Sturges (The Palm Beach Story, 1941), Billy Wilder (Sunset Blvd., 1950) and Douglas Sirk (Imitation of Life, 1959), whose work is showcased in this collection of four classic Stanwyck films:

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).

    wanted a copy of Double Indemnity, and All about Eve, disappointed with other two. This is not the first multiple buy I've made. Seems you must buy a couple of duds, to get the one you want.

      The quality of the dvd is very good. Usually the quality of the film isn't very good if it's a bargain. Not so with this dvd.

        This collection of movies runs the full spectrum from romantic comedy to no holes barred drama! Once you start watching you can't look away, not even for a bathroom break! They just don't make movies like these anymore.

          I absolutely love the old classic movies. It was a tremendous price - four movies for the price of one DVD. I like it very much!

            Comments about this product:

            These movies are simply that: Sumptuous! There was one that hadn't see before: In All I Desire, Barbara plays a woman who gave in to her desires, lured by a man who only cared about his own carnal desires, and pushed away by a husband who was not as interested as I should have been. She then left town to become a big star, and the movie tells of her disappointments and her ultimate coming to understand what was really important.
            While not as exciting as some of her movies, Barbara gives her usual tour-de-force, and leaves her cheering for her. She is simply the best that Hollywood has ever offered, and I am just we can see her brilliance over and over again, thanks to companies like TCM! Thank you, TCM!!!

              Great collection of Barbara Stanwyck films. Purchased it primarily for Double Indemnity and The Lady Eve, but I enjoyed All I Desire and There's Always Tomorrow as well. Very happy with it.

                    Love Barbara; purchased this mostly for Double Indemnity. The two more recent films were a bit soapy but not bad. Wish this had included Ball of Fire but still very happy with the product.

                        This movie is brilliant. Beautifully photographed and a great story-line. It was entertaining. I think this is one of Douglas Sirk's and Barbara Stanwyck's very best. Ross Hunter gave it the "A" production which shows. A great film.
