"TORCH SONG remains the last great expression of the Crawford myth..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Sadie McKee, Strange Cargo, A Woman's Face and Flamingo Road are full screen format, and in black & white. Torch Song is widescreen, and in color.
One of Hollywood's biggest stars, Joan Crawford had a face that cut through the hearts of millions of moviegoers and played muse to the lens of some of Hollywood's biggest cinematographers. Yet her performances had a vulnerability that could soften the severity of her almost statuesque beauty, making her a favorite of directors like Frank Borzage and George Cukor. This collection of five films demonstrate her remarkable talent and surprising versatility, shining in roles that ranged from musical comedy to powerful melodrama. Included here are TORCH SONG, STRANGE CARGO, SADIE MCKEE, FLAMINGO ROAD, and A WOMAN'S FACE.
