There’s something about Barbara Stanwyck. Sure, she made some awesome movies and was a great and versatile actress – perhaps the most versatile of all time – but it’s not just that. There’s a soothing, warm quality about her that draws you to her. At least, that’s the case with me. Whenever I watch one of her movies, it feels like an old friend came ’round for afternoon tea. She’s comforting, and she makes you feel safe and relaxed. Her voice, her smile and the fact that you know that whichever movie you’re watching, it’s going to be good because she’s in it… she just had it, whatever it was.
Happy Birthday Babs, and thank you for everything ❤
