Barbara Stanwyck Collection [Internes Can't Take Money / The Great Man's Lady / The Bride Wore Boots] (Blu-ray)
Directed by William Wellman and Irving Pichel and Alfred Santell
This collection feature three classic films starring screen legend Barbara Stanwyck. INTERNES CAN’T TAKE MONEY (1937) – Young Dr. James Kildare (Joel McCrea, Four Faces West), interning at a clinic, falls for his patient Janet Haley (Barbara Stanwyck, Witness to Murder). The feeling is mutual, but Janet has a secret she will not divulge: She’s the widow of a bank robber who hid their daughter before he died and she is desperately trying to find the little girl. She will use anyone—including Dr. Kildare—to get her child back. The doctor’s association with gangster Hanlon (Lloyd Nolan, The House on 92nd Street), whose injuries Kildare secretly patched up, and Janet’s connection with gangster Innes (Stanley Ridges, Black Friday), who’s helping her find her daughter, bring it all to a rousing head filled with action, suspense and the unexpected! Stylishly directed by Alfred Santell (Breakfast for Two), Internes Can’t Take Money was the third of six films co-starring Stanwyck and McCrea and the only Dr. Kildare film produced by Paramount. The Max Brand-created character was picked up by MGM for a series of successful movies from 1938 to 1942 starring Lew Ayres as Kildare. THE GREAT MAN’S LADY (1942) – From William A. Wellman, the legendary director of Wings, Beau Geste, Nothing Sacred, The Ox-Bow Incident, Yellow Sky and The High and the Mighty, comes this romantic western-drama starring screen icons Barbara Stanwyck (All I Desire) and Joel McCrea (The Virginian). After Hoyt City dedicates a statue to its founder Ethan Hoyt (McCrea), the woman who inspired his achievement, the 109-year-old Hannah Sempler (Stanwyck), tells their story to a young biographer. She begins with their elopement in 1848 when she was a headstrong Philadelphia girl of 16 and Ethan was an idealist yearning to build a city in the West. Their future was fraught with difficulties, from life in a prairie shack to a fruitless search for gold and, ultimately, to Ethan’s jealousy over Hannah’s friendship with gambler Steely Edwards (Brian Donlevy, Canyon Passage). Through it all, she remained what she is today: the woman who sacrificed everything for her husband’s sake. Filled with action and humor, this moving film was vigorously directed by Wellman and beautifully shot by the great William C. Mellor (A Place in the Sun). THE BRIDE WORE BOOTS (1946) – From Irving Pichel, the acclaimed director of Tomorrow Is Forever, O.S.S., Something in the Wind, The Miracle of the Bells, Quicksand and Destination Moon, comes this comedy of errors about a bookish husband trying to win back the affections of his horse-breeding wife. Screen legend Barbara Stanwyck (There’s Always Tomorrow) stars as southern heiress Sally Warren, who loves everything to do with horseracing. Her studious husband, Jeff (Robert Cummings, The Chase), cannot stand the creatures and would rather spend his time writing. When their incompatibilities land them in divorce court, it will take a little imagination and a lot of luck to restore the love in their hilariously mismatched relationship. The Bride Wore Boots features a stellar cast that includes a young Natalie Wood (Driftwood), Diana Lynn (The Kentuckian) and the great Robert Benchley (Road to Utopia).
