In this week's issue of "The New Yorker", David Denby reviews Donald Spoto's new biography, Possessed: The Life of Joan Crawford, and in the process, makes some interesting points about Crawford, her film persona (was there a difference between the two?), and her movie output. Denby doesn't have the same blind admiration that a certain Film-gabber has, but he definitely gives La Crawford an even-handed retrospection. Check out an excerpt here, or pick-up a copy of the magazine. Then watch two of Joan's best performances in Mildred Pierce and Humoresque next Friday and Saturday (1/7 & 1/8) on TCM.
