Summary
During the Golden Age of films, Joan Crawford was among the greats. She was also one of the most misunderstood. Spoto goes beyond the image that was portrayed of Crawford as an abusive, unstable mother by her adopted daughter to provide a portrait of the woman who was courageous, ambitious, strong, driven and had good business sense
Summary
Crawford was one of the most incandescent film stars of all time, yet she was also one of the most misunderstood. Spoto goes beyond the popular caricature to give us a three-dimensional portrait of a very human woman, her dazzling career, and her extraordinarily dramatic life and times
