Since the links on my other post died; I reuploaded them to a different site, so hopefully this will work now. I think the links expire after 30 days if no one downloads; if that happens just let me know and I’ll reupload them. **Note these are all of Clara’s extant films I have been able to find.

The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933) is the only art film Barbara Stanwyck has ever made, and it’s interesting to see how her presence fits into one. The picture is “art” in its execution as well as in its experimental theme. It is visually a tapestry. And Frank Capra and Joseph Walker weave her into it by bathing her in sensuous lighting, ritual and music. As an objet d´art she is most satisfying.
