#45. Stella Dallas - Review

Stella Dallas 1937This movie is heartbreaking. Any women out there with mommy issues, daddy issues, and/or relationship issues better just stay clear of ol’ Stella Dallas. King Vidor’s 1937 classic portrays a young working class woman who marries rich, and in the end dies alone. Along with William Holden, I believe Barbara Stanwyck is one of Hollywood’s most underappreciated movie stars, and here as the titular Stella she proves her might. This is stunning filmmaking; with an ending so incredibly devastating I’m not sure I could ever watch it again. Stella Dallas is pure melodrama in the best possible way.
