Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 3:00pm the Tuxedo Park Library Authors’ Circle will proudly present Victoria Wilson author of The Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True: 1907-1940.
In a book that was 15 years in the making, Victoria Wilson brings to life one of the most influential screen actresses. Written with full access to Stanwyck's family, friends, colleagues, and never-before-seen letters, journals and photographs. Here is the shaping of her career working with many of Hollywood's most important directors: among them, Capra, King Vidor, Cecil B. Demille, Preston Sturges, all set against the times--the Depression, the rise of the unions, the coming of World War II and a fast-evolving coming-of-age motion picture industry.
