There are many words that have been used to describe Barbara Stanwyck’s unparalleled career, but “glamorous” is not typically one of them. It is a testament to her acting that substance, not style, was the true source of her allure. As a result, other aspects of her star persona, like glamour, have been overlooked.
Stanwyck could definitely hold her own in the glamour department when the occasion, or character, called for it, and she certainly gave the other glamour girls of the era a run for their money.
