Barbara Stanwyck revisited

Icon's work will be celebrated on-air, in H'wood

The late great Barbara Stanwyck would have celebrated her 100th birthday July 16.

Already, that centennial has inspired laudatory reappraisals of her career by Anthony Lane in the New Yorker, Kenneth Turan in the L.A. Times and Terrence Rafferty in the New York Times.

Celebrations of her work are planned on-air and in Hollywood. Turner Classic Movies will unspool 15 classic Stanwyck films that day, and in Beverly Hills, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has mounted its largest-ever exhibition dedicated to one star, featuring more than 70 posters and lobby cards from Stanwyck’s pics.

Exhibit, from the vast collection of publicist-producer Mike Kaplan, reveals the star’s range, from her start in 1929’s “The Locked Door” through “Baby Face,” “Double Indemnity,” “Stella Dallas” and “Sorry, Wrong Number.” It runs through Aug. 26.
