Could've been better

This is really a missed opportunity. You'd think that with so many Joan Crawford fans still around there's be a market for a better, more professional documentary on one of her more infamous films. This just isn't worth your time. There is a new documentary about JC that was made for Turner Classic Movies that features footage fromthis movie and more informative interviews from her co-stars. It's a lot better this piece of crap and is funny to boot. Skip this and set your TiVo for it.
