The Barbara Stanwyck Show (1960)
About The Barbara Stanwyck Show
The Barbara Stanwyck Show is an American anthology drama television series which ran on NBC from September 1960 to September 1961. Barbara Stanwyck served as hostess, and starred in all but four of the half-hour productions. The four she did not star in were actually pilot episodes of potential series programs which never materialized. Stanwyck won the Emmy Award in 1961 for Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Series.
Three of the shows in which Stanwyck starred were an attempt at spinning off a dramatic series of her own, in which she appeared as “Josephine Little”, an American woman running an import-export shop in Hong Kong.
The series, produced at Desilu Studios, was directed by Stuart Rosenberg. The Barbara Stanwyck Show lasted one season. It aired at 10 p.m. Eastern on Mondays opposite Jackie Cooper’s military sitcom Hennesey on CBS and the second half of Gardner McKay’s Adventures in Paradise on ABC.
