Joan, Joan on the Range
As if they were reading Werth's thoughts again, the Brooklyn Academy of Music is presenting the bitchiest western ever made, Nicholas Ray's Johnny Guitar, on Sunday 2/20. Guns! Fashion! Latent Lesbian Crushes! Joan Crawford puts on her boots and spurs and goes toe to toe with Mercedes McCambridge in one of the strangest oaters you'll ever see. Look for scenes where Joan's stand-in fills in for her because Joan loathed working with co-star Sterling Hayden.
