Crawford makes her first entrance in the film in a white mink coat with a dark brown fox collar. The look of this outfit is copied in [Mommie Dearest] when Christina visits Joan and Al Steele in their still-under construction apartment. See more »
I admire you so much. You're so nice in spite of... in spite of the way things are.
I believe you're being sympathetic. Don't feel sorry for me, I like people around me to laugh and be gay.

From frame one, she is EVIL! I totally cracked up because everyone else is dressed and lit adequately,but in each shot, each frig-gin' shot, Joan is in fantastic gowns, jewels, lit fabulously and with just that HINT of gauze, Vaseline over the lens. Same year as Female on the Beach. Go Joan! She chews through scenery like a wood chipper. However her character, originally from Chicago, is intimidated by a southern family..I don't think so. I realized she is the prototype of characters like Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction". The scene where she dares her husband to divorce her is shark-like.Glamorous from start to finish.And poor Betsy Palmer....
