Thursday, December 16, 2010

HERE IS WHAT AMOUNTS TO A HOLIDAY TRADITION...I THINK MISS JOAN WOULD HAVE APPROVED.

"MISS JOAN CRAWFORD", IN 1969 HER NAME COMMANDED RESPECT, ANNOUNCED BY ROD SERLING WITH FLAIR. TODAY HER NAME CREATES CONTROVERSY. BOTH ARE A GOOD THING.

BETTE AND JOAN, THEY CANNOT BE SEPARATED.

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS...

WARHOL DOES JOAN

SOME WORDS OF WISDOM VIA OUR DEAR FRIEND, MISS JOAN...

HERE IS THOUGHT I EXPRESSED TO THAT FAB BLOG MISTRESS, THE SELF STYLED SIREN...

Joan Crawford, say her name in a crowded room and just watch the reaction..she crosses into areas even she would not of believed.




Right wingers feel threatened by her independent, feminist spirit.



Born Againers freak at her supposedly immoral, lavish, champagne and vodka lifestyle.



The twit populace believes the bogus outrgeousness of,"Mommie Dearest'.



The Gays love the camp.



The style savvy, love her as a representative fashion ambassodress for nearly forty years of chic.



The satire-ists love the over the top middle to late years Joan.



All along the way there was the talent that shines in 80 plus films, of which a third are indelible and triumphant.



A true original, full of contradictions, which only serves to enrich her legend.



In all of this swirl, stands the golden fleece of her career, the holy oracle of her unique cinematic achievements, "A Woman's Face", is a masterpiece with tiny flaws as to create a yearning for even more depth, more intelligence and more of that dynamic force only Crawford could express.



It is the mature breakthrough performance that both salutes Sadie Thompson, Flaemchen, Sadie Mackee, Crystal Allen, Julie and Susan Trexell while conjureing the future with hints of all the Mildreds yet to come.



Ingrid Bergman originated Anna Holm, Garbo was offered this part, Bette Davis played a radio version as did Ida Lupino.



Joan had entered again into the realm of the rarest of film acting elite...and she pulled it off with a subtlety and a majestic aplomb yet so deeply felt, you are transported by the talent of her empathy to actually become one with this character.



A rare achievement where the perfection of the technical machine of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer again create art and Joan Crawford's career was never the same because of this gem.



And aren't we lucky to benefit and bask in glory of this astounding film and the infinate variety of Joan Crawford.



Toby, from The Joan Crawford Deluxe Suite

JOAN'S FEELING ON HER LAST YEAR AT METRO-TOTAL WAR!

BUT BACK TO THE AWFUL AND AWFULLY FUNNY, "REUNION IN FRANCE."

ACTUALLY THIS CONTAINS A VINTAGE AUNT JEMIMA COMMERCIAL, TO GO WITH AVA'S ROLE. SHE IS, HORRORS OF HORRORS-MIXED ANCESTRY.

SHE IS PURE MAGIC, THAT AVA, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!

LIFE IMITATES LIFE, AVA ACTUALLY ENJOYED A TORRID AFFAIR WITH BARBARA STANWYCK'S HUSBAND, ROBERT TAYLOR, THE SET WAS AS ICY AS JOAN'S CONTRACT INFORCED MOVIE SETS, EXCEPT THIS COLD ZONE WAS PURELY WOMAN -MADE.

AVA GARDNER COULD OF PLAYED JOAN'S SISTER IN SOMETHING. ACTUALLY, AVA HAD A BIT PART IN JOAN'S HORRIBLE AND HILARIOUS,"REUNION IN FRANCE". SHE HAS ONE LINE IN THE EXCLUSIVE LADIES STORE JOAN TOILS IN. I BELIEVE SHE REPEATS A SURLY NAZI CUSTOMERS LAST NAME,"FRAU FRAUDENCOUPERGLOCENSPLIEGEN" AND THAT IS IT, HER BIG LINE! OH YES, AVA GETS TO SHARE THE SCREEN WITH JOAN AND HER CO-WORKERS, BY JUST WALKING INTO THEIR BREAKROOM, LISTENING TO SOME OUTSIDE MUSIC AND THEN, WALKING OUT. AND YOU CANNOT TAKE YOUR EYES OFF OF HER! HOWEVER STARRY MARRIAGE AND MOVIE GOLD WERE WAITING FOR OUR VIXEN AND WHEN AVA HIT BIG...WELL THE REST IS LEGEND.

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

OKAY, LETS ROCK!

JUST PLAIN OLD FANTASTIQUE!

FROM THE WEIRD TO THE ...I DUNNO...

VIVIEN LEIGH, SO BEAUTIFUL, SO DYNAMIC. THE SUM TOTAL OF PURE TALENT MEETS ARRESTING GORGEOUSNESS. THE DIVINE ONE HERSELF, VIVIEN.

'PHYLLIS', AH, PHYLLIS , MARY'S OVER WROUGHT, OVER DRESSED AND OVER DRAMATIC , SELF INVOLVED WONDERFUL SCHMUCKY PAL !

THE LOVERS, ALWAYS.

AND FOR ALL OF US THAT JUST PLAIN ENJOY STARWORSHIPPING LA CRAWFORD!

AND ON THE SUBJECT OF WOMEN'S FACES , PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS VERY COOL AND UNUSUAL VID...

SEE WHAT I MEAN?


DOES MADAME YES LOOK LIKE GARBO WITH BLACK HAIR OR WHAAA?

I THINK THIS REALLY CAPTURES ALL THE UNSPOKEN DELIGHTS OF THE SILENT HOLLYWOOD FILMS!

WHEN THE WORLD'S TOP BOX OFFICE STAR HAS EVERYTHING...EXCEPT A CHILD OF HER OWN TO LOVE...



YES, FOR EVERYTHING SHE HAD AT THE TIME OF HER  BRIGHTEST BOX OFFICE, JOAN'S MARRIAGE TO FRANCHOT WAS MARRED BY THEIR LACK OF SUCCESSFULLY BEING ABLE TO ACHIEVE PARENTHOOD.

JOAN'S TOUCHING AND SENCETIVE RETELLING , CAN BE FOUND IN CHARLOTTE CHANDLER'S RECENT BOOK, 'NOT THE GIRL NEXT DOOR'.

SHE IS NOT CRAZY OR SHALLOW OR SELFISH, BUT RATHER YOU FEEL HER PAIN AS HER SUCCESS SEEMS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT A QUALITY HOME LIFE AND INSIGHTFUL ON WHY THE TONE MARRIAGE WAS DESTINED TO FAIL AND HER PART IN ITS END.

AND SHE IS VERY BRAVE TO ADMIT HER OWN SHORTCOMINGS.

THIS MAKES HER SO COMPELLING AND VERY DEAR. AND VERY HUMAN.
