Joan Crawford sings!!!
22 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Has anyone really noticed that Joan Crawford sings in this movie??? And she's really pretty good! I have to admit that I like Joan Crawford movies...even the bad ones. But to see her sing!!! You have to hand it to her, she really did work very hard to make herself into Joan Crawford... And she sings in English, French AND German!!! Quite a nice little movie here.... Clark Gable is gorgeous and luscious of course, and there are a bunch of supporting players who really became quite famous back then.

I love old movies!! A good story with interesting characters and beautiful mise-en-scene.

Try it! You'll like it! And it's worth it just to see Joan Crawford sing!
