Ruby Catherine Stevens Wiki Biography

Ruby Catherine Stevens was born on 16 July 1907, in Brooklyn, New York USA, of Canadian, English and Scottish ancestry. As Barbara Stanwyck, she was an actress, best known for starring in almost 100 films and television shows during a career spanning four decades. She was a favorite of directors including Frank Capra, Fritz Lang, and Cecil B. DeMille. All of her efforts helped put her net worth to where it was prior to her passing in 1990.

How rich is Barbara Stanwyck? As of mid-2016, sources estimate a net worth that was at $1 million, mostly earned through a successful career in acting. During the peak of her career she was the highest-paid woman in the United States and made a total of 85 films. She was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress four times and all of these ensured the position of her wealth.

Ruby was orphaned when she was four years old as her mother died from complications following a miscarriage, and her father disappeared shortly afterwards while working on the Panama Canal. Her eldest sister Mildred raised Ruby and her younger brother, and soon they were moving from various foster homes. In 1916, Ruby toured with her Mildred and practiced routines similar to that of her sister’s job as a showgirl. When she was 14 years old, she dropped out of Erasmus Hall High School to take a job at a local department store before working at a local telephone office. After doing various jobs, she auditioned for a night club called the Strand Roof.

In 1922 she became a dancer and performed at the New Amsterdam Theater. For the next few years, she would work as a chorus girl at night clubs and also as a dance instructor. In 1926, Ruby was introduced to Willard Mack who would cast her for a production entitled “The Noose”, which became one of the most popular productions of the season, and soon Ruby would change her name to Barbara Stanwyck, part role name and the name of another actress.. Her career on Broadway was flourishing, and she then appeared in “Burlesque” which led to her first film appearance in the silent film “Broadway Nights”.

Barbara’s first sound film was “The Locked Door”(1929) and a year later she appeared in “Ladies of Leisure”. She continued in prominent roles in “Night Nurse”, “Shopworn”, and “Stella Dallas”. She impressed in each of her performances and continued to make films in the 1940s with “You Belong to Me”, and “The Other Love” in which she portrayed a concert pianist. She became well known for portraying strong characters and then became a part of various noir films.

Her film career would decline in the late 1950s, and she then moved to television, establishing the Emmy Award winning “The Barbara Stanwyck Show”. She then appeared in the series “The Big Valley” which led to another Emmy. Afterwards, she appeared in the film “Roustabout” alongside Elvis Presley. Later in life, she would go on and do more award winning films, and on TV including “The Thorn Birds”.

For her personal life, it is known that Stanwyck had romantic relations with Rex Cherryman who unfortunately died of septic poisoning while travelling at sea. In 1928, she married Frank Fay and they adopted a son – Barbara was unable to have any more children because of a botched abortion when she was 15 years old. Fay was reportedly abusive and eventually they divorced in 1935. In 1936, she became involved with Robert Taylor and they eventually married in 1939, but it also ended in divorce during 1950. The two were rumoured to have problems and affairs but still acted together in “The Night Walker”. After Taylor’s death in 1969, Stanwyck took a long break from acting. Aside from that, she also had a four year relationship with the much younger Robert Wagner. In 1990, Stanwyck passed away due to congestive heart failure at the age of 82 years old. She declined to have any funeral service.

Ruby Catherine Stevens Quotes

  • (On making Sorry, Wrong Number (1948) “Five days I was handling it, starting the next day’s work where I’d picked up, sustaining it all, and then I had two whole days to relax and not to worry about the character, and I tell you it was strange. It was really hard to pump myself up on Monday morning to try to feel that desperate tension.”
  • (On her character in Sorry, Wrong Number (1948) “Almost from the word go, she is way up there emotionally, and stays there day after day…I decided I’d prefer to jump in, bam, go, stay there, up, try to sustain it all the way and shoot the works.”
  • [on performing her favorite title role in Stella Dallas (1937)] The task was to convince audiences that Stella’s instincts were fine and noble even though, on the surface she was loud, flamboyant, and a bit vulgar.
  • Some kids are born with bad blood just like horses. When a parent has done everything possible, the only solution is to save yourself.
  • [In the 1960s, explaining her four-year absence from films after Forty Guns (1957)] Nobody asked me. They don’t normally write parts for women my age because America is now a country of youth. We’ve matured and moved on. The past belongs to the past.
  • [on filming Titanic (1953)] The night we were making the scene of the dying ship in the outdoor tank at Twentieth, it was bitter cold. I was 47 feet up in the air in a lifeboat swinging on the davits. The water below was agitated into a heavy rolling mass and it was thick with other lifeboats full of women and children. I looked down and thought, “If one of these ropes snaps now, it’s good-by for you”. Then I looked up at the faces lined along the rail -those left behind to die with the ship. I thought of the men and women who had been through this thing in our time. We were re-creating an actual tragedy and I burst into tears. I shook with great racking sobs and couldn’t stop.
  • I want to go on until they have to shoot me.
  • Attention embarrasses me. I don’t like to be on display.
  • Career is too pompous a word. It was a job and I have always felt privileged to be paid for doing what I love doing.
  • There’s nothing more fun in the whole world than seeing a child open a present at Christmas. To have a six-year-old boy stroke a bicycle with his eyes and, not daring to touch, turn and ask, “Is it mine, Missy? Really mine?” That’s part of my future. The rest is work. And, I hope, some wisdom.
  • Egotism – usually just a case of mistaken nonentity.
  • I couldn’t remember my name for weeks. I’d be at the theater and hear them calling, “Miss Stanwyck, Miss Stanwyck”, and I’d think, “Where is that dame? Why doesn’t she answer? By crickie, it’s me!”
  • It’s perhaps not the future I would choose. I still think it’s possible to make a success of both marriage and career, even though I didn’t. But it’s not a bad future. And I’m not afraid of it.
  • [In 1939 on the fact that her fiancé, Robert Taylor, was four years younger than she] The boy’s got a lot to learn and I’ve got a lot to teach.
  • My only problem is finding a way to play my fortieth fallen female in a different way from my thirty-ninth.
  • Put me in the last fifteen minutes of a picture and I don’t care what happened before. I don’t even care if I was IN the rest of the damned thing – I’ll take it in those fifteen minutes.
  • [Referring to director Frank Capra] Eyes are the greatest tool in film. Mr. Capra taught me that. Sure, it’s nice to say very good dialogue, if you can get it. But great movie acting – watch the eyes!
  • I’m a tough old broad from Brooklyn. I intend to go on acting until I’m ninety and they won’t need to paste my face with make-up.
  • During Double Indemnity (1944), Fred MacMurray would go to rushes [viewings of daily completed shots]. I remember asking Fred, “How was I?” [Fred’s response was] “I don’t know about you, but I was wonderful!” Such a true remark. Actors only look at themselves.

  • $50,000
  • Caught bronchitis while filming The Thorn Birds (1983).
  • Started smoking when she was nine.
  • In Hollywood, as everywhere he went, Frank Fay did not make a lot of friends. A standard joke of the time went “who’s got the biggest prick in Hollywood?” Answer: “Barbara Stanwyck.” The womanizing, alcoholic Fay’s career floundered, while Stanwyck’s flourished for decades. In 1935 the two were divorced, and Fay continued his downward spiral, until 1944, when he was chosen to play Elwood P. Dowd in the original New York City Broadway production of “Harvey”.
  • Through his friend Oscar Levant, Frank Fay met and married Barbara Stanwyck, then a young chorus girl who’d just gotten her first Broadway show (Burlesque, 1927) In 1929 they did a dramatic sketch, as “Fay and Stanwyck” at the Palace. Later that year, they were called to Hollywood, so Frank could star in the film “Show of Shows.” Fay and Stanwyck’s marriage and their experience in Hollywood later became the basis of a Hollywood movie – “A Star is Born”.

However, there seems to have been no lasting animosity between them – when Stanwyck received her AFI Life Achievement Award, Wilder was amongst the most laudatory of those paying tribute to her.

  • Born at 8:55 PM.
