Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Joan Crawford is playing a most troubled lady, and giving a sincere and generally effective characterization of same.
Rotten: All this is good melodrama and fair entertainment, but it is much closer to the waltz-time schmalz of Kathleen Norris than to the fox-trot brass of James M. Cain.
Fresh: A class feature, showmanly produced by Jerry Wald and tellingly directed by Michael Curtiz.
Fresh: The archetypal Joan Crawford movie.
Joan Crawford at Her Best
This is one of my all-time favorites and a performance by Joan Crawford that I can't help but measure all others by. You'll watch this movie over and over again guaranteed!
The HBO series doesnt come close
I know Kate winslet is great,but NOBODY compares to Joan Crawford,amazing actress.Beautifal woman. dont beleive all you hear and/or read about her its not ALL true. she never 'beat' her children.
Another great movie from Warner bros.
