I thought maybe we could share one of our favorites.
One of mine in Barbara Stanwyck. In her day she showed so much versitility. The devoted, self-sacrificing mother in the original Stella Dallas. She was in a couple of comedies "The Lady Eve" and "Christmas in Connecticut". Stanwyck could play the victim "Sorry, Wrong Number" and also be the femme fatale in "Double Jeopardy" and so many other examples. I BELIEVED her in whatever role she played and am glad she was able to show her talents and not be pigeon holed into only one type of character.
