Ask for Babs: Barbara Stanwyck's Studio Shots

Back in the day, studios put together glamour shots of their stars in different locations and get-ups to give directors an idea of their versatility, or something like that. Kind of like a 1930's version of Peter Graves going through the photos at the opening of each episode of Mission: Impossible to pick his team.

Anyway, here are four of Barbara Stanwyck from 1935, courtesy of Paramount. I can only guess that decades later, while working up the idea for The Big Valley, the producers got a hold of that last one and thought, "Hey, wait a minute!"

She's one of my favorites of all time. No, scratch that, I think she's my favorite, period.
