RATE AND COMMENT

NOTES

In 1944 the IRS claimed that Stanwyck was the highest-paid woman in the USA, with an annual salary of $400,000

Stanwyck changed her name from Ruby Stevens when she appeared in the Broadway play, "The Noose" in 1926. The inspiration was said to come from a theatrical poster which announced "Jane Stanwyck in 'Barbara Frietchie'".

"I would have to say that I have never worked with an actress who was more cooperative, less temperamental and a better workman, to use my term of highest compliment, than Barbara Stanwyck." (Cecil B. DeMille, on directing Stanwyck -- PR TNT's special, "Barbara Stanwyck: Fire and Desire" 1991)

"Career is too pompous a word. It was a job, and I have always felt privileged to be paid for doing what I love doing." (Barbara Stanwyck -- PR TNT's special, "Barbara Stanwyck: Fire and Desire" 1991)
