When Irene sends the men out of the room before Barrie comes in, she takes a cigarette from a porcelain box on the table, tapping it on the box lid. Cut to Barrie opening his car door and stumbling up the steps to the porch. There is an immediate cut back to Irene who is just putting the lid back on the box. See more »

A hilarious Joan Crawford performance -- who knew?
Having just watched the amazing A WOMAN'S FACE, ran across this comment thread and I am so glad to see this title has fervent admirers. I am definitely one. Watched it many years ago and was absolutely floored by Joan's performance in this, as atypical for her as A WOMAN'S FACE but in a completely different direction, high comedy. It is one of the all-time greatest comedic performances in my book, and yet remains tragically obscure, in both her and Cukor's filmographies. Of course, it is so over-the-top that it runs the risk of being pigeonholed as just another campy Joan Crawford display, and yet if you cast out your preconceptions about her you will see a multi-layered characterization that is at once absurd yet never condescending, expertly timed delivery that seems totally effortless. I simply cannot wait for a DVD of this!
