New York City has put out its fair share of Hollywood stars over the years, from Lauren Bacall, who was born in the city on September 16th, 1924, to Matthew Broderick, who came into this world on March 21st, 1962.  And then there is Barbara Stanwyck. 

The screen legend was born Ruby Stevens in Brooklyn on July 16th, 1907.  Coming up on this week's Cityscape, we'll talk with Victoria Wilson, the author of a massive new biography of Stanwyck.  It's called A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907-1940.
