Harriet Craig 1950 Joan Crawford Drama
Stars: Joan Crawford, Wendell Corey, Lucile Watson
Domineering Harriet Craig holds more regard for her home and its possessions than she does for any person in her life. Among those she treats like household objects are her kind husband Walter, whom she has lied to about her inability to have children; her cousin Claire, whom she treats like a secretary; and her servants whom she treats like slaves.
Harriet Craig is a forgotten film about a wife (Joan Crawford) who cares only about her possessions, her way of life and anything that involves her. Her blind husband (Wendell Corey) soon starts to realize that he’s not married to the type of woman he thought he was. The coldness of her character is something that you’ll certainly dislike but the constant lying and the way she puts herself before anything else just makes this one of the most memorable characters out there. The sequence when everything finally breaks and the two go at it is rather priceless in regards to the brilliance of the acting.

You may also enjoy Johnny Guitar, a 1954 Joan Crawford flick. Crawford wears black and packs six-guns… She makes all the decisions, initiates the action, and takes the majority of heroic stands, privileges traditionally denied women in Westerns. Another interesting flick with Crawford starring along with Jeff Chandler is Female on the Beach. This well-mounted melodrama about a rich widow mixed up with a shady beach bum is definitely Crawford at her best. Last but not least, is Autumn Leaves – a seldom seen movie and one of Crawford’s best.
