Born Ruby Catherine Stevens, Barbara Stanwyck was as unique in life as she was in her professional reputation. Known as one of the most versatile actresses in Hollywood’s golden era, and for playing some of the most memorable roles in cinema history (like Phyllis Dietrichson in “Double Indemnity” and Jean in “Lady Eve”), she became even more successful in television during the ’50s and ’60s.

After choosing some incredibly wise avenues to invest her earnings, Stanwyck became one of the richest women in the U.S. before her death in 1990.
