Early Joan is awful because she was really nothing but a stock actress who happened to get promoted by luck. She hit that sweet spot circa 1933-1950-something.i watched a REAL awful Crawford film recently called Paid from (1930) my god was that thing awful. not as bad as (1930)'s Montana Moon though also with Crawford and in that one she is simply awful in it. easily her worst film so far that i've seen and is prolly her worst performance of the ones i've seen thus far. now i watched (1931)'s Laughing Sinners and that one i really loved and i really would suggest you all to watch that one. it was a really good one i think. i haven't watched any Davis work recently though just Crawford
Hm, yeah, well ironically she was someone who seemed to benefit from "The Hayes Code" because she could play it rather well while still being naughty enough for the audience behind the screen.not all of her films with her in them had her awful in them, she was actually really good in Paid but the film was just bad and i disagree she was good in some films before (1933)
Grand Hotel would be one of them where she was good in for example. but i do agree that she's bad in some of them just not all of them
Yeah, I've seen it on TCM. I had it on my DVR for quite a while, and for many nights I'd turn it on just to fall asleep to it. I vaguely remember watching the entire movie once, and I believe there was one time it was in my Amazon shopping cart. Of course, after a few viewings (several incomplete, however), the chance is extremely slim that this movie will make it to my DVD shrine.Has anybody seen TROG (1970), generally regarded as Joan Crawford's worst. She's an anthropologist or something who goes in search of the missing link who'd attacked a few fey spelunking investigators.
The picture might have been a decent B-movie if it weren't for the missing link's costume which conveyed the primate's genetic ambivalence by putting a monkey suit on the actor and then cutting away the arms so his human limbs were visible.
Crawford's okay, although there are times I think she's ever-so-slightly drunk.
