Now, having been inspired by this flawless gal's post on Katharine Hepburn, I thought I'd do my own version. Just some of the little Stanwyckisms that make me love Missy so:
Ruby Catherine Stevens. c.1915
From "The Noose", I think.
Your argument is invalid. She is the queen.
Recording These Three in 1937 with Mary Astor and Errol Flynn.
Pouring coffee, the ultimate Stanwyckism.
Riding horses at Marwyck, her ranch.
Sewing behind the scenes of Golden Boy (1939).
At the races with Bob Taylor.
Playing Tennis. (Once again at Marwyck, if I'm not mistaken).
"Stanwyck's Shanty" on the set of Banjo on my Knee (1936).
Stanwyck loving on her horse...
...who then repaid her by trying to eat her.
Riding a bike.
On the set of Meet John Doe (1941) with Gary Cooper. Looking at this, I don't think she was very confident in the Coop's knitting skills.
Behind the scenes of The Strange Love of Martha Ivers with, need I say it, more coffee.
Reading comics with her son Dion.
Behind the scenes of Remember the Night (1940) with her golden boy.
Running a-muck on the Warner Brothers lot. Sure...
Behind the scenes of The Lady Eve with Preston Sturges. Possibly my favorite picture ever, not gonna lie.
With the maid who gave her the nickname Missy.
Riding motorcycles with Bob.
Playing chess with Frank Capra on the set of Meet John Doe.
The dress. That's all.
Playing with elephants and Elvis.
Holding her honorary oh-crap-we-forgot-to-award-her-greatness-let's-just-give-her-this Oscar.
Playing with wild animals on the set of Escape to Burma.
Riding a tractor. Like a boss.
Falling off a carousel horse, or didn't you notice that?
The story behind this photo. Greatest ever. I love her so much.
When I'm doing a role, a good role, I'm being someone other than me.
Until Later On~
