Barbara Stanwyck Season at the BFI

Celebrating a Hollywood heroine

1 February 2019 – 20 March 2019 | Visit website

Starring Barbara Stanwyck is a season dedicated to one of the most successful and memorable Hollywood actors of all time; Barbara Stanwyck’s career spanned more than four decades and her versatility saw her take on roles spanning genres from screwball to film noir to melodrama.

The season will include classics such as Stella Dallas (King Vidor, 1937), Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder, 1944) and Clash by Night (Fritz Lang, 1952). The season will also include Barbara Stanwyck in the Spotlight, an afternoon of richly illustrated talks and discussions exploring key aspects of Stanwyck’s career and Barbara Stanwyck – a Modern Star is Born, a six-week evening course. 

This second part of the BFI's tribute to Barbara Stanwyck highlights the breadth and depth of her characters. As film critic David Thomson said of her, Stanwyck was “delectable, a stirring mixture of toughness and sentiment, a truly and creatively two-faced woman.”

Prepared to be wowed and wooed by this Hollywood heroine!
