Jungle Love, and Jungle Death
Barbara Stanwyck was most famous as a hard-boiled determined lady in film noir adventures, and her later role in the television show “Big Valley.” She was born in 1907. When she was three-years-old her her father went to work on the Panama Canal and was never seen again, and her mother was killed by being pushed off of a moving streetcar. She and her older sister grew up in a series of foster homes. She once said about her childhood, “Life wasn’t always sweet, but it was life.”
Her older sister became a showgirl, and helped Barbara become a Ziegfeld Follies dancer when Barbara dropped out of school at the age of 15 to support herself. From the Ziegfeld Follies to Hollywood, Barbara rose to become an iconic actor. In 1944 she was the highest paid woman in America, earning $400,000.
In 1953, recently divorced from Robert Taylor after twelve years of marriage, Barbara Stanwyck accepted a role in “Titanic,” and it was there that the 45-year-old movie star met 22-year-old actor Robert Wagner. They began a four-year secret affair that only ended because Barbara Stanwyck broke it off when Robert Wagner started dating Natalie Wood.
After this affair with Robert Wagner, Barbara Stanwyck’s name was never linked romantically to anyone. She said that all she wanted to do was work ‘until they shoot me.’ She would occasionally admit that after Robert Taylor, there would never again be another man in her life as a partner. When Robert Taylor passed in 1969, Barbara Stanwyck attended the funeral and quickly broke into sobbing tears.
In this adventure she is the owner of a Teak plantation in Burma, ruling over the workers and even the elephants doing the heavy labor. When a stranger appears out of the jungle, she is quickly drawn to the rugged adventurer. Their love affair begins almost immediately. Unfortunately, the man is on the run from the British consul police for murdering the son of the Sawbwa, the native ruler of the area. Barbara Stanwyck wants the handsome stranger all to herself and will go on the run with him deep into the jungle, with native tribesmen and the consul police hot on their trail. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
