Barbara Stanwyck Trailer of the Day: Stella Dallas


Stanwyck garnered the first of her four Oscar nominations for her portrayal of Stella, a woman who marries into money in the form of wealthy mill tycoon Stephen Dallas (John Boles). They have a daughter, Laurel (Anne Shirley), but after an embarrassing incident, Stella begins thinking that her family’s life may possibly be better without her in the picture. “Barbara Stanwyck’s Stella, an ambitious lower-class woman who ends by sacrificing everything she’s won for her daughter, takes the film beyond the simple pleasures of well-made melodrama.”—Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune (106 mins.)

STELLA DALLAS screens on Thurs., Mar. 28 at 7pm & Sat., Mar. 30 at 7pm.  Tickets are available here.  To purchase Barbara Stanwyck: The Miracle Woman series passes, follow this link.
