Ahem, a bit nervous about starting a new thread...but I thought it might be a good idea to have a central location for fans to show the studios how much interest there is in Barbara Stanwyck films on DVD. Otherwise the requests might be overlooked in larger all-purpose threads. As others have said elsewhere, she definitely deserves multiple boxsets (Of course I'd buy individual releases too, at full price. Although boxsets are a better value, I value this lady's work so highly, saving money isn't that important to me.) Barbara Stanwyck's one of my favorite actresses. I've never seen her give anything less than a great performance, and I think she should've won oodles of Oscars. I do believe she was a more natural and versatile actress than other acclaimed stars like Katharine Hepburn or Bette Davis - although I enjoy their work, they could be mannered and tended to play a certain "type". Or maybe their real life, larger-than-life personas dominated (and defined) the roles they played. Barbara might be less known today because, instead of being an instantly recognizable "type", she played an amazing variety of roles, excelled at both comedy and drama, could be tough or vulnerable, heroine or villain. There's a lack of pretense and an emotional realism in her work that I greatly admire. I'm not sure why it's taking so long to get so many of her wonderful performances preserved on DVD. Perhaps the fact that she was a freelance actress has something to do with it - a lack of proprietary pride because none of the studios she worked for, really consider her "their" star? It's understandable that Warner Bros. would concentrate on paying tribute to (and showcasing even the lesser known films of) their most famous stars who are identified with Warner: Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, Bette Davis, etc. It's natural for 20th Century Fox to proudly display the work of Betty Grable, Alice Faye, etc. And so on for the other studios. But I hope that eventually they'll all "get around to" Barbara Stanwyck. Please don't forget about one of the very best actresses the world has ever known. (Gushing hyperbole? But it's true! ) As Frank M pointed out here, her 100th birthday is approaching, and it would be a perfect time to celebrate her life and work, with a flood of DVDs!
