The Black Barbara Stanwyck

Recommended Posts

As I watch Barbara S today, 13 August 2017, I realize she reminds me of someone else--someone of the present day. Finally it dawns on me: PAM GRIER! Pam G looks like a black version of Barbara S!

You agree, yes? :)  :)  :)  :)  :)

So "The Big Valley" actually refers to Pam Grier's cleavage?

The same almond eyes, the same pointed noses, the same sharp cheekbones, the same full mouths--they could easily be related. :)  :)  :)  :)  :)

Although Stanwyck was tough, I just can't see her blowing off a pimp's head with a shotgun. But I could be wrong.

Well she did encourage her boyfriend to ensure that bad-guy Gable is killed in Night Nurse and they laugh about it at the end of this pre-code.

 

So she might not pull the trigger but she doesn't mind loading the gun.

The should remake Babyface. Pam would be great.

 

Pam is 68 years old.   I believe you meant to say they should have made a remake of Baby Face (about 40 years ago).

 

But yea,  Pam has the screen persona for such a role.

No, I meant now. We just need to change the venue from a corporate ladder to a rest home escalator.

She should have won the Oscar for Jackie Brown. I saw that for the first time at the end of June and she was wonderful. She wasn't even nominated though.....

Also, I have a second-hand film book called The MGM Story, a film-by-film look at the studio's history and the author calls Grier the Ava Gardner of Black Cinema or something to that regard.....

In a book about the adventure genre that I used to own, its author commented on the actors and actresses that were particularly adept at adventure. Of Barbara the Big S he said that she was a feisty creature with all the pugnacity of a terrier.

Not sure I could go along with this observation of yours, Palmerin...although I suppose I can see where you're coming from here to some extent.

 

(...now, on the other hand, Gail Fisher on Mannix always reminded me a lot of a "black version" of Ruth Roman)
