Joan Crawford…Need I say more?

Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford is one of my favorite actresses of all time.  She has played many different types of roles but always sucks you into her character.  If you were supposed to love her, you did, if you were supposed to hate her and cringe at her catty ways, you did.  I was going to try and pick my favorite Joan Crawford movie but I just couldn’t.  I love early Joan and her barely there eyebrows.  There is something about early cinema that give me chills and I watch in nostalgic awe the fashions and mind states of the characters involved.  To list a few of early Joan Crawford movies I think should be on everyone’s cinema bucket list I would have to say the following in no particular order as I can’t chose which I like more!

Rain (1932)

Dance, Fools, Dance (1931)

Grand Hotel (1932)

The Women (1939) an absolute must if you are going through a breakup.

Mildred Pierce (1945)

and of course Whatever happened to Baby Jane (1962)

All can be found on the IMDB link provided.  She stared in plenty of other movies and my Joan journey still continues, feel free to suggest your own Joan favorite!
