Get another girl

"I'm a tough old broad from Brooklyn. Don't try to make me into something I'm not. If you want someone to tiptoe down the Barkley staircase in crinoline and politely ask where the cattle went, get another girl. "

"I don't give a damn what people think of me, as long as I'm doing something I think is right."

"What the hell, whatever I had... it worked, didn't it?"

Barbara Stanwyck (born Ruby Catherine Stevens, 16th July 1907 – 20th January 1990)


  1. Just saw her in "Baby Face" the other day. What a scandalous story!! Also, I read in one of the Hollywood Babylon books that her and Marjorie Main had a thing back in the thirties. I am never disappointed in Barbara.

    1. She was an uncompromising broad, totally unafraid to take roles that were shocking, and never suffered fools gladly. That she also shagged whoever the hell she pleased was never a huge surprise, really... Jx
