Joan Crawford personally bought the film rights to Edna L. Lee's novel "The Queen Bee" for $15,000, then sold them to Columbia under the following conditions: she would star, Jerry Wald would produce, Ranald MacDougall would write the screenplay and direct the film, Charles Lang would be the film's cinematographer and she would have contractual approval on her costume, make-up and hair designers. Each of these conditions was fulfilled. See more »

A guilty pleasure if I ever saw one. Directect by Ranald McDougall, even his name reads like a misspell, he was the writer of Mildred Pierce and clearly Crawford trusted him. Look at her entrance, from a distance, a subtle and no so subtle game of light and music. The turgid tale of evil and deception suffers from holes in every angle but this is not the sort of picture that can afford that kind of scrutiny. This is a showcase for the late term Crawford die hard fans. You wont be able to help but admire her devastating self confidence. She knew every trick in the book as an actress as well as a character. Queen Bee goes bye fast very fast and the moral compass is determined by Lucy Marlow when in fact it needed a sort of Anne Baxter or someone with a bit more gravitas. To be seen with a bunch of like minded friends and laugh out loud.
