Remembering Barbara Stanwyck on her birthday (16 July 1907 - 20 Januray 1990)

She was a movie and television star for 60 years and one of the most well-liked actors in Hollywood. She was a consummate professional, always showing up ready to work, no tantrums, no scandal, never giving a bad performance but never winning any awards (though she deserved plenty).

Remembering Ginger Rogers on her birthday (16 July 1911 - 25 April 1995)
It wasn’t all just “backward and in high heels.” She was also an Oscar-winning actress and a damn fine dancer on her own.
