Barbara Stanwyck – The Queen website was created for many reasons, the most important, because Barbara Stanwyck deserves it. She gave us so many wonderful moments on Screen that we wanted, in our own humble way, to repay the favor and keep her legacy and memory alive and available to old and new generations of viewers. When I “discovered” Barbara Stanwyck, The Queen, a few years ago, I was surprised to see that out of the major Classic Era Stars, Stanwcyk was one of the few that did not have a major Site dedicated to her. Maybe because she was too private, maybe her family worried about other things. In any case, there was a void that needed to be filled.
This Site is intended as an educational resource for any Stanwyck admirer, researcher or student, a one-stop, starting-place for all things Stanwyck. The second goal for this Site is to provide Stanwyck fans with an active community on the web. Ray’s Yahoo Group, Miss Barbara Stanwyck, is an integral part of this community and we encourage you to join in and start participating.
This website is currently a work in progress, as you can see, there are many placeholders for future updates and information. This Site is also intended to be a collaborative effort, if you want to contribute in any way, shape or form, here’s where you can help:
- Blog entries about you know who.
- Write to Missy and Send us Missy stories.
- Provide links to interesting reviews on Stanwyck movies and or career reviews.
- Provide your own in-depth review of a Stany film.
