    About This Person
    From All Movie Guide: Joan Crawford was not an actress; she was a movie star. The distinction is a crucial one: She infrequently appeared in superior films, and her work was rarely distinguished regardless of the material, yet she enjoyed one of the most successful and longest-lived careers in cinema history. Glamorous and over the top, stardom was seemingly Crawford's birthright; everything about her, from her rags-to-riches story to her constant struggles to remain in the spotlight, made her ideal fodder for the Hollywood myth factory. Even in death she remained a high-profile figure thanks to the publication of her daughter's infamous tell-all book, an outrageous film biography, and numerous revelations of a sordid private life. Ultimately, Crawford was melodrama incarnate, a wide-eyed, delirious prima donna whose story endures as a definitive portrait of motion picture fame, determination, and relentless ambition.

    Joan Crawford
    During the early 1930s, Crawford modified her image to better fit the hard-scrabble conditions of Depression-era America. In this new role, she played a glamorized version of the working girl who relied on her intelligence, looks and sheer determination to get ahead in life. This persona was fully realized in Possessed (1931), where Crawford was teamed with Clark Gable. During production, the two stars began an affair that resulted in an ultimatum from studio chief Louis B. Mayer to Gable that the affair end. Gable chose his career over the relationship, although their affair would resume spasmodically and secretly for many years. Upon release, Possessed was an enormous hit.
    An indication of Crawford's superstar-status was the studio's decision to cast her in its most prestigious movie of 1932, the all-star extravaganza, Grand Hotel.
    Crawford achieved continued success with Letty Lynton (1932) The film is mostly remembered today because of the Letty Lynton dress, designed by Adrian: a white cotton organdy gown with large mutton sleeves, puffed at the shoulder. It was with this gown that Crawford's broad shoulders began to be accentuated by costume; this would become a trademark for the actress along with, later in her career, emphasized eyebrows and ankle strap shoes. When the Letty Lynton dress was copied by Macy's in 1932, it sold over 500,000 replicas nationwide.
    Following the success of Possessed, Gable was starred in a series of steamy pairings opposite Crawford, in which they established themselves as a formidable romantic duo of the 1930s. Their rollicking smash hit Dancing Lady (1933), in which Crawford received top billing over Gable, was the only movie to feature Robert Benchley, Nelson Eddy, Fred Astaire and the Three Stooges all together in one movie. Crawford's next two movies with Gable, Chained (1934) and Forsaking All Others (also 1934), were both big hits, being among the top money makers of the mid-1930s, and marked Crawford's peak at MGM as a popular star at the box office.

    "Joan Crawford behaved like a star. Some do, some don't...You know, when Joan came on the set, somebody came on the set."
    Rosalind Russell
    "My first impression of Joan Crawford was of glamour. Glamour had nothing to do with aloofness or temperment, it had to do with friendliness, tremendous vitality and hard work, ambition and constant desire to improve her work, and to get knowledgeable about things that were
    important to the work." James Stewart
    "Joan was a star in every sense of the word. She didn't remind you of it in any particular way. You just knew it. And you didn't think any less of her for it." Henry Fonda
    "Joan Crawford, as much as I dislike the lady, is a star." Humphrey Bogart
    "She remains an electric presence even in some of her very unsatisfactory movies. Everything about her shone - her hair, her lips, her handsome hands, her graceful strong body and legs, her elegant feet. Everything looked as though it had sprung from nowhere, shining. Perhaps we know too much nowadays about what it takes to make a star and what a price is paid. All I know is that Joan Crawford shone. That's why they called her a star." Anna Raeburn

BY HOWARD MANDELBAUM During an astonishing fifty-year career, Joan Crawford kept her name blazing in letters of fire. You could dislike her, but you could not ignore her. She was simply too big to be overlooked. Everything about her was oversize: her eyes, brows, mouth, jawline, shoulders, and of course, her gestures. In movie-star mythology, she was the original Cinderella Girl. Born to severe poverty and domestic unrest, she pulled herself up by her bra straps through hard work and determination. "Self-improvement" was her watch-word. Private joys and sorrows and professional slips and comebacks were recounted by newspapers and magazines to be digested like Hershey bars by an eager public. Ignorant shopgirls, waitresses, and factory slavies found inspiration and wish fulfillment in MGM 's scrubbed-up version of the Crawford saga.

Image Credits For almost 50 years, Joan Crawford reigned as one of the great stars of the silver screen, evolving from a free-spirited flapper in her movies of the 1920s into an all-American working girl of the Great Depression, before eventually playing cool, driven, independent women with troublesome passions and neuroses concealed beneath a classy, well-coiffed exterior in numerous melodramas and film noir classics of the 1940s. Though her career declined with the studio system itself in the 1950s, Crawford soldiered on in her chosen profession, bringing a touch of old Hollywood glamour to the industry in an era that was no longer worthy of her.
