Stanwyck, Barbara

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004


    Highly professional actress whose most memorable roles were in The Lady Eve, Meet John Doe, Ball of Fire and, in a really great noir role opposite Fred MacMurray in Double Indemnity. Nominated four times for an Oscar, Stanwyck never won, but still remained a very popular actress.

    The reference to Carole Lombard in A Wild Hare (Avery, 1940), in the gag where Fudd is guessing who is covering his eyes, was replaced with Stanwyck’s name, following the former actress’s untimely death.
