Tough call on this one. Im going with Garbo, although Stanwyck was great in both of those movies.

I'm going with Queen Kate, though when I went back and re-watched Little Women, I felt her performance in Morning Glory, which actually won the Oscar was better.

Zoe said...

Barbara Stanwyck for sure!

KC said...

Stanwyck is my favorite overall, but if we're judging by these specific performances--Garbo.

Anastasia said...

Barbara Stanwyck!

Why does that photo of Stanwyck remind me of Holidae Hayes?



Oh, yeah -- the fierce determination in her eyes. That's it!

This is one of the real tough ones. I've started four different essays with each actress but Fay Wray winning.

We'll see which one I finish first.

As for Mister Muleboy's reference to Holidae Hayes, that's an inside nod to an attorney we both knew, not well, from back in the day who is now a fixture on D.C.'s charity circuit, working for various causes such as Knock Out Abuse. If you actually care, click here -- she's in the second photo from the top.

Oh, I thought you were talking about Ira Hayes. But, as long as you're asking, put me down as having a general yen for Barbara Stanwyck in Baby Face.
