Customer Reviews

Joan Crawford was a great actress.
D. Clark
Even at it's full list-price, buying this box set is cheaper than getting each DVD individually.

I recommend this to every one who loves the old movies.

This gift for Joan's fans is her Shining-Best of the Best! Joan, "Do you know what I would put on my tombstone? 'I care what my fans think of me -now and forever.'"

If you have never seen a Joan Crawford movie then I certainly recommend getting this set because you will be a fan once you see how versatile and how hard Joan always worked. My favorite film from this collection is "Mildred Pierce." And coming in at a close second is "Possessed." Keep Joan alive on the small screen and in your heart with these classic movies from the Golden Age!

Here's the basic stats for each movie:

Brief Synopsis:

Mildred Pearce (September 24, 1945) (Studio: Warners)
Runtime Listing: 109 mins

Finally, Joan's best performance on DVD - Possessed (1947). And what a plus to see Humoresque and The Damned Don't Cry included. But with Mildred Pierce (which we all own already) and The Women currently out on DVD, why not finish out Joan's collection with the films she did in her five years at Warners; ie, Flamingo Road (in which she double bitch slaps Sidney Greenstreet to hilarious effect), Goodbye, My Fancy (Joan as a congresswoman - we need her more than ever!), and This Woman Is Dangerous (which is not nearly as bad as you have been led to believe). I guess we wait. And wait for Harriet Craig (Columbia) and Daisy Kenyon (20th Century Fox) as well.

This collection is not only some of Joan Crawford's best work, these are some of the best women's films from the period where women were really appreciated in film. It was not just the strong stars, it was the stories and casting. Yes, the style was style heavy-handed by today's standards, but Joan Crawford took acting risks all the way. These movies were so revolutionary they seem trite today, but any film buff recognizes techniques that are still underused, and appreciate them.

But you don't have to be a technician to appreciate these fims.

THE WOMEN was a classic stage script lifted almost verbatim on to the screen, and it works in every respect. It is the comedy of this set. The flawless casting - Joan as the gorgeous and man-eating shop girl who can take in on the chin - was still an early exercise in trying "star-studded" casting. It is a tongue-in-cheek take on a woman's world... and the stereotypes of a woman's world. The ebb and flow between these two is what is timelessly witty. When Mary (Norma Shearer)'s mother compares a woman alone in bed to a swastica, it tells us exactly where we are politically and socially. This was/is a star turn by Joan, and her brass and humor are in full swing.

MILDRED PIERCE is Joan's classic rags-to-riches gone noir-ish. Susie Homemaker becomes Betty Crocker. It has the timeless story line, and Ann Blythe (ironically later a spokeswoman for Hostess cupcakes in her later life) as the daughter you really want to smack silly. It also has some really early addressing of the issues of working women and divorce that were so timely in the post-war years. The business friendship portrayed with Eve Arden, and the ambivalent attraction to Jack Carson give this script some really interesting levels.

While the release of The Joan Crawford Collection was an eagerly anticipated event in mid 2005 along with the Bette Davis Collection issued at the same time, nearly a year and a half has passed.Bette now has volume 2 & all we've seen on the Crawford front from Warners is Dancing Lady in the Gable boxset.Am I the only Crawford fan who has noticed this slight?Am I the only one who wants more?I don't have to tell you all the titles,but for instance how about a boxset with Flamingo Road,A Woman's Face,Susan and God,This Woman is Dangerous& Paid. Throw in some of her silents as extras(Like the Garbo set),follow up with a Gable/Crawford set(at least 7 more films)&let's get the show on the road!

Fans of the divine Joan Crawford are sure to enjoy this great-value DVD set from Warners which packages five of Crawford's best films.

From the outer box artwork to the extra features, a lot of care and attention has clearly been spent on this set, and we are certainly lucky in having it so beautifully presented. The emphasis is very much on Joan's years as a film noir femme fatale, with The Damned Don't Cry, Possessed and Humoresque all from Crawford's glory days at Warner Brothers. Mildred Pierce (Keepcase), her first Oscar-winning role; plus her catty turn in The Women (Keepcase) are also here. Each disc is housed in it's own sturdy plastic Amaray case.

THE DAMNED DON'T CRY - Joan Crawford plays a gangster's moll who climbs up from the gutter only to discover that life at the top can be twice as dangerous. Extra features include the new featurette "The Crawford Formula: Real and Reel", audio commentary with director Vincent Sherman, and the trailer.

POSSESSED - Love takes a deadly turn in this noir drama. Crawford plays Louise Howell, a woman driven to desperate measures--and madness--when ex-boyfriend Van Heflin wants to marry her stepdaughter. Extra features include audio commentary by Dr.
