Melvyn Douglas, Osa Massen, and Joan Crawford
I have a huge obsession with Joan Crawford films (certainly not limited to, but especially the ones from the 30s and 40s). Not only was she a remarkable actress, so many of her films just happened to be a particular kind of wonderful. She also happened to co-star with some of my favorite actors (Melvyn Douglas, Robert Montgomery, Clark Gable, Franchot Tone…).
A Woman’s Face is one of my favorites. The entire cast is outstanding and the directing (by one of the greatest directors of all time, George Cukor) is breathtaking.
If you’ve never seen the film, I hope you’ll find it as soon as you possibly can. It is extraordinary.
You can find A Woman’s Face on Amazon (DVD) or click the link below the lobby card to rent (for only $1.99) or buy on Amazon Prime.
