Rating: 3/5 -- It's a role that Crawford was born to play, but ultimately the film is too campy to be memorable.

Possessed faintly echoes Lost Weekend, Seventh Veil - and has one camera shot straight from Stairway to Heaven. It is, however, a powerful and effective document - from which the susceptible will totter. Full Review

The weaknesses in this unusual movie do not greatly matter beside the fact that a lot of people who have a lot to give are giving it all they've got. Full Review

...Crawford called this her most demanding role, and her histrionics got her an Oscar nomination...

Rating: 3/4 -- Possessed does have a few very good insights into the self-abasing aggressiveness of unrequited love. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

She loves him when he goes away for months. She loves him when he refuses to marry her. But when callow David Sutton chooses to marry someone else, Louise Howell's love for him takes a darker turn. Giver her a gun and she'll love him to death.

Joan Crawford reteams with producer Jerry Wald of her Academy Award-winning Mildred Pierce and claims a 1947 Best Actress Oscar nomination for her portrayal of tempestuous, mentally unstable Louise. "'I love you' is such an inadequate way of saying I love you," Louis says. "It doesn't quite describe how much it hurts sometimes." With Crawford at her film-noir-queen best, be assured it hurts so good.

Product Description:

The story centers around a woman who is driven mad by her own kind of obsessive love that ultimately ruins her life. Academy Award Nominations: Best Actress-Joan CrawFord.

Plot Synopsis:

A disoriented woman is found on the streets of Los Angeles and brought to a psychiatric ward. Through flashbacks she recounts the extraordinary tale of love, rejection, paranoia and murder that led her to wander the streets.
