Terrible Early Joan Crawford Movie
3 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

What a stinker! Joan plays a spoiled socialite named Joan (ha!) who finds herself irresistibly drawn to Jeff (Ricardo Cortez) while on a train. Jeff is also crazy about Joan and can hardly keep his hands off of her from the first moment they meet. The problem is, Joan's friend Elizabeth (Dorothy Sebastian) is a sweet innocent girl who is madly in love with Jeff. So, to remove herself from temptation, Joan leaves the train at a stop without telling anybody. While waiting for another train, she meets Larry the hillbilly cowboy (Johnny Mack Brown). Right here I knew I was in trouble because I'm no fan of Johnny Mack Brown. He's from the South yet he insists on exaggerating his accent until he sounds positively brain-damaged. The romantic scenes between Crawford and Brown are some of the worst of Joan's career. Anyway, in no time flat, Joan and Larry are engaged. But Joan's still hot for Jeff so when he shows back up it's trouble in paradise. Awful movie on every level with some truly nauseating singing by Joan.
