The second day of Barbara blogging is set to be an exciting one. First, we're treated to a little holiday cheer (in July) with Christmas in Connecticut. Then Ivan hauls us onto the dusty plains along with Forty Guns, we make a side-trip into the wilds of TV soap opera, and we end up shivering on the decks of the Titanic. Fittingly, the day ends with a look at the partnership that launched Stanwyck's career, the teaming of Frank Capra and Barbara Stanwyck. Without Frank Capra, there might not have been any Stanwyck film career. That's a thought more terrifying than the image of Stanwyck brandishing a gun in Crime of Passion.

ETA: By the way, I've been informed that there's a new website in town, completely devoted to Barbara Stanwyck! It's called Barbara Stanwyck the Queen. You can find it here. I haven't had much of a chance to explore the site yet, but you can bet I'll soon be a regular visitor. The site's got forums, a blog, gifs, a complete Stanwyck filmography, magazine articles, quotes, photo galleries, basically everything a Stanwyck fan needs to be in utter heaven. Check them out!
