Excerpts from Stanwyck films are continuously and repeatedly shown out of chronological sequence, with the result that they often contradict whatever point the script is trying to make in regards to the development of her career. See more »
Richard Schickel directed documentary takes a look at the life and career of Stanwyck who seemed to mirror many of her famous roles. This doc runs under an hour and tries to reach as many subjects as possible and does a decent job but a longer piece would certainly be better. Schickel makes an interesting commentary about Stanwyck having three periods of her career and all of these periods were exploitation by the studio due to certain things that were happening in her personal life. Sally Fields narrates.
