Like the phoenix she was, Joan Crawford's spirit of being and becoming the best you can be, while appreciating those that love and help you, is now more alive than the lady herself.
Within a five year times pan, specials like the TCM documentary, the Chandler book, the AMC documentary on William Haines and his book and www.lengendaryjoancrawford.com webmaster's interesting and revealing story on that daughter of hers and let I forget, the fabulous encyclopedia;"thebestofeverything" certainly the single most intersting site in creation on things,"JOAN",  plus the wonderful biography Joan Crawford: The Enduring Star and the Vanity Fair other side of mommie article from the Chandler book,  more recently, happily shed new light on the better side of Joan Crawford.

Even Tonner Dolls have a really glamorous line of Joan Crawford dolls out!

All of this interest is very encourageing because although Joan Crawford enjoys her tenth place on AFI's list of the most influnecial film artists of the twentieth century, she deserves so much more and there seems to be a very active community that feels the same way.

And its about time!

All Time Best Crazy Joan Crawford Club Mix!

Here is a prime example of one of her longest running friendships...Miss Barbara Stanwyck.

Joan lovingly referred to her as , "Missy" and Barbara returned the affection by calling Joan  "Miss C".

The story of their 50 year friendship to follow , all I will say for now is be a friend , the reward is greater than you can imagine!


You can't have a friend , unless you be a friend....which is one thing Joan did very well , this gift in making friends and keeping friends that was a quality in large part that made her career.

Her sets were legendary for their convivial attitudes [ for the most part ] because the team effort was what Joan was all about , me too.

Thank you , new visitors like Ed , for visiting the blog , lets hear your story whenever you want!

From hospital rooms , held open for much of the length of her career to on set gifts or her $100,000.00 donation to the Red Cross , in Carole Lombard's name , this woman knew the value of giving , both of herself and her time not to mention readily opening her checkbook to help a friend in need , like Marie Prevost or any worthy cause and mostly anonymously.

Joan relaxing and rejuvenateing herself at her Brentwood home
This home , that she lived in for more than 25 years , had been redone as many times as she altered her screen image.Part of its elegant success came through the positive by product of a geniune friendship she enjoyed , all her life , with William Haines. After being number 1 at the box office , Haines left Metro to become one of the centuries truely great interior designers.
As simple and la de da as that sounds , it simply was not so.

Joan Crawford's need to achieve was usually frought with an unhappy mixture of great hunger for achievement and great anxiety pursueing and maintaining her goals and successes.
Any artist worth his or her salt , knows this feeling only too well.
So , of course the general public misunderstands what drives us , of course we feel often alienated by this very same society we aim to achieve within.
Our comfort comes in the form of talent , that which defines us and also , sets us apart.

1968 , an the time were a changeing , even for Joan


This a one of my favorite color shots of Joan! It is both a technically lovely shot of her but also captures her haunting quality.

She seems to be saying , with just her demeanor and her eyes , of course, 'Look at me and listen to my story , it's not like any you have heard before but I think you could relate to it'.
This is not what the general public thinks of when they have cause to think of someone as contoversial and ageless as that enigma known as , Joan Crawford.
