Just Joan (ebook)

JUST JOAN: A JOAN CRAWFORD APPRECIATION by Donna Marie Nowak

Crawford is examined as a feminist forerunner, a dynamic artist, and as one of the world's great movie stars.  Many anecdotes and quotes reveal the sassy, indomitable spirit of this actress, who grew up in abject poverty with an indifferent family, and yet, against unseemly strife and setbacks, rose from the ashes like a phoenix. Her determination, talent, and committed work ethic enabled her to find a career and home with MGM, possibly one of the most celebrated and powerful studios in film history.

Hers is the moving, complex story of the pursuit and realization of the American Dream, part sublime, part nightmare, and self-actuated. The author's rich detail and devotion bears testament to Crawford's enduring enigma. 

Compiled after four years of comprehensive research culled from rare Lincoln Center archives, original magazines, and those who knew her. Illustrated with over 300 photos, many of them rare and never before in print.
