The first of two films with this title Joan Crawford appeared in. The second was the 1947 film Possessed (1947), for which she received an Oscar nomination. This makes Crawford the only star to appear in two completely different films with identical titles. See more »
Don't confuse this with the 1947 Joan Crawford movie!
Joan Crawford made two films, both with the title; "Possessed." This is the 1931 version (the other was made in 1947) and the two stories are nothing alike. Clark Gable is in this one, and it's a delight to see the two superstars together. (Supposedly, they were having a torrid affair at the time this was filmed).
