More about the release of The Barbara Stanwyck Show: Volume 1
This Fall, E1 Entertainment and the Archive of American Television continue the celebration of culturally and historically significant productions from the Golden Age of Television with the DVD debut of The Barbara Stanwyck Show. The NBC drama anthology series originally aired 50 years ago, and starred multi-talented actress Barbara Stanwyck, the American Film Institute’s “11th Greatest Female Star of All Time.” The 3-DVD set The Barbara Stanwyck Show: Volume 1 features 15 of the series’ most memorable ½ hour dramas, including The Key to a Killer with Vic Morrow, Dear Charlie with Milton Berle, and Confession with Lee Marvin. As a bonus, the set also includes the never-before-seen pilot episode Sponsor’s Table. A must-own for aficionados of classic television, The Barbara Stanwyck Show: Volume 1 arrived in stores on October 27th.
Throughout her illustrious career, Barbara Stanwyck enraptured Hollywood, starring in nearly 100 films (including Double Indemnity and Sorry, Wrong Number) and capturing four Oscar nominations. After conquering the silver screen, Barbara took on the world of television as star of The Barbara Stanwyck Show in 1960. After 36 half-hour episodes, in which she starred in all but four of the dramas and earned an Emmy award for “Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Series (Lead)”, Stanwyck went on to earn two additional Emmys for her roles in The Thorn Birds and The Big Valley.
To this first volume of 15 dramas, E1 Entertainment adds the unaired pilot episode Sponsor’s Table, Barbara Stanwyck’s 1961 Emmy acceptance speech, and a booklet with written contributions by film historian Robert Osborne.
