"The true life sequel…of Mother love and sacrifice"

Olive Higgins Prouty, author

Prouty, author

Follow the life of Stella Dallas as she gets falsely accused of stealing an Egyptian mummy. Based on the novels by Olive Higgins Prouty (1882-1974) , she was one of the first women to write pulp fiction with strong and independent women characters (1882-1974) in the United States. Dallas was a working-class heroine that was suddenly rich after marrying Stephen Dallas; her strong love for her daughter Laurel is the primary theme of the series.

This is one of the rare instances in early entertainment where a working class woman is presented with dignity and respect. Because of her high earnings between the wars, she was able to donate a lot of money to charities including a scholarship for Sylvia Plath whom she befriended. Though Prouty was against the depiction of the later Stella Dallas old time radio show, it is considered by many as the mother of all soap operas and dramatic tones on the organ after each dialogue support that theory. Stella Dallas was depicted by Barbara Stanwyck in 1937, and again as Stella starring Bette Midler in 1990.
