Barbara Stanwyck

Barbara Stanwyck (Born Ruby Katherine Stevens) (July 16, 1907 - January 20, 1990) was an American actress.. She took her stage name from the name of a play, "Barbara Frietchie", about a fictional Civil War heroine. The play starred a British actress named Joan Stanwyck.

Stanwyck starred in almost a hundred films during her career and received four nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actress: Stella Dallas (1937), Ball of Fire (1941), Double Indemnity (1944), and Sorry, Wrong Number (1948). She received an Honorary Award "for superlative creativity and unique contribution to the art of screen acting in 1982". In her later years, she also starred in television. She was postumously outed in the mid 1990s as having been a lesbian.
