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).
