Barbara Stanwyck at the Film Forum in December 2013!


Good news for anyone in the New York City area: this month the Film Forum is dedicating itself to showing 42 films of the magnificent Barbara Stanwyck. This includes a lot of her pre-Code work, like a double feature of The Miracle Woman and The Bitter Tea of General Yen on the 6th and a double feature of Night Nurse and Baby Face on the 8th. Also on the 6th and 8th are opportunities to meet Victoria Wilson, the author of Steel-True, A Life of Barbara Stanwyck, 1907 to 1940.

I won’t be going (stupid opposite side of the country), but if you do and get a chance to hang with Ms. Wilson, leave me a comment and let me know how it went!


Danny lives outside Tokyo, Japan, with his lovely wife, adorable daughter, and two yappy dogs. He blogs bi-weekly at, a website dedicated to Hollywood films from 1930 to 1934, and can be found on Twitter @PreCodeDotCom.

  1. I’ve made it a goal to watch all of her movies and have made it through quite a few. But there is nothing like seeing them on the big screen.
