The Stanwyck Project

Barbara Stanwyck just might be the greatest actress Hollywood has ever had the honor of calling its own. Eventually finding success in both film and television, this woman could do it all — comedy, drama, thriller, Western. You name it, she probably played it… and played it well! Her characters were varied and her performances are known for their captivating, honest, and authentic qualities.

As soon as I saw my first Stanwyck film I became a fan, and a few months after beginning this blog in 2012 I made it my mission to watch (or re-watch) and review every film that Stanwyck ever made! I’ve been working on the Barbara Stanwyck Filmography Project ever since, and have reviewed over 70 of her films. Here you’ll find Stanwyck’s filmography list, as well as links to my reviews of her work!

(Note: If a title isn’t linked, I may have already seen it. Unlinked simply means that I have not yet posted the review or re-visited the film for the blog!)
