About this item

Her characters suffered equally in gingham or fur. They used guts, glamour or sometimes a gun to move ahead in the world. Screen diva Joan Crawford plays a working girl on the rise in "Sadie McKee" and "Flamingo Road", swapping a maid's outfit for mink in one and a burlesque career for smalltown respectability in the other. In "Strange Cargo", she sails seas of romance and redemption with on-the-lam Clark Gable. No one can forget "A Woman's Face", with plastic surgery transforming Crawford's character from bitter beast to optimistic beauty. And "Torch Song" veers between backstage melodrama and unintended camp as fiery Broadway chanteuse Crawford finds love. Hollywood's torch burns brightly for this quintessential star. "Sadie McKee" - As working girl "Sadie McKee", Joan Crawford wears a maid's uniform. And as any Crawford fan knows, she'll shortly swap her white apron for black sable - even (or especially) if it means heartbreak along the way. In this rags-to-riches tale, Sadie wins the affections of the singer (Gene Raymond) she loves, the tycoon (Edward Arnold) she marries and the lawyer (Franchot Tone) she grew up with. That's a lot of on-screen romantic fire, and not all of it may be due to acting ability alone: The year after "Sadie McKee" was filmed, Crawford became Mrs. Franchot Tone. "Strange Cargo" - Through impenetrable jungles. Across perilous swamps. Desperate for a second chance at life, a band of Devil's Island felons and a tough-as-nails prostitute struggle toward freedom. Film giants Clark Gable and Joan Crawford team for the eighth and last time in this gripping story that explores the lures of the flesh and the transcendence of the spirit. Fighting each other and the elements, the stars imbue this provocative adventure with audacity, power and passion. "A Woman's Face" - When Anna Holm looks at aristocratic Torsten Barring, she sees romance. When Torston looks at her, he sees horror: a web of scar tissue that twists her face into a grotesque mask. Eager to win Torsten's love, Anna endures 12 plastic surgeries and emerges a beauty. Lovely, says Torsten, but could you do just one more favor? Murder the little boy who stands between me and a vast inheritance. Joan Crawford takes a role Ingrid Bergman played in the original Swedish version and vividly makes it her own in this Hollywood remake pitch-perfectly directed by George Cukor. "Flamingo Road" - Hard-edged carny dancer Lane Bellamy shakes her curves... and shakes a sleepy Southern burg to its core. Joan Crawford rejoins her "Mildred Pierce" co-star (Zachary Scott), producer (Jerry Wald) and director (Michael Curtix) in another steamy saga of a steely dame with gams, guts and a gun. As Lane, she gyrates into the arms of a local politician... and into conflict with the tyrannical town boss (Sydney Greenstreet), who thinks cute little tricks from the wrong side of the tracks ought to stay there. But Lane is determined to cross those tracks for the riches and respectability of the town's toniest address: "Flamingo Road". "Torch Song" - Musical star Jenny Stewart functions on two emotional levels: demanding and impossible. Only one person will stand up to Jenny: her accompanist, blinded in the war. But it may be Jenny who can't see, not only her own loneliness but also her chance for happiness. Joan Crawford, who began her career as a chorus girl in the 1920s, shows she still has the moves (and the gams) to play Jenny 30 years later. There's more to enjoy in this roller-coaster romantic drama: a volcanic Crawford performance and knockout renditions of "Tenderly, Blue Moon" and more standards staged by director Charles Walters ("Easter Parade").
