Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent, Baby Face
Barbara Stanwyck is one of my absolute favorite stars of all time – she wasn’t just wonderful, she was electric. Baby Face (1933) is one of my favorite films and one of my favorite Barbara Stanwyck performances. It’s also the film that made me a George Brent fan. I had seen him in a few Bette Davis movies (he was her favorite leading man), and had always liked him well enough, but this film made me a really big fan of his and caused me to see what Bette Davis saw in him!
Baby Face is a MUST HAVE for collectors but can be hard to find, individually on dvd. Most of the time you have to buy a Barbara Stanwyck collection… something I never mind doing!
