every inch a lady 26 May 2009
By JGC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Who writes these descriptions? "This Woman is Dangerous" was never considered a classic. I wouldn't even consider it a cult-classic (like "Johnny Guitar", "Torch Song" or "Harriet Craig"). Instead, it's a little-known picture that most of Joan's newer generation of fans (anyone under 25, like myself) have likely never seen because it has never been released on any format until now.

After a string of unsuccessful films, this was Joan's final contracted Warners picture as she decided to branch out on her own. And Joan must have known best, because directly after "This Woman is Dangerous" she made one of her defining pictures, which was nominated for an Oscar, "Sudden Fear".

In this film, Joan plays Beth Austin, a gangster who goes out of her way to erase her past after meeting a new man. The film is very mundane and somewhat forgettable because none of the scenes are overly dramatic, nor does it have that over-the-top essence that many of Joan's pictures of the late '40s and '50s usually always had. The film is a total of 95 minutes in length.

As I have already stated, these are standard DVDs that Warner Home Video put out earlier this year through their site. You will find them for much less if you buy them directly from the studio. You can also catch this movie as it is shown on TCM from time to time, but do yourself a favor and don't buy from this site as the price has been completely inflated to make you think that you're getting a rare and otherwise unattainable item.

"This Woman is Dangerous" reminds me of a hybrid-carbon copy of "Possessed" (1947), "Flamingo Road" and perhaps even "The Damned Don't Cry". Joan once commenting on this film much later into her 6-decade career, saying, "I must have been awfully hungry. I guess I was. ...A shoddy story..." Joan still gave a great performance, but by now the studio had totally written her off as evidenced by her lackluster costars, scriptwriters and director. She managed to still pull it off while carrying the entire burden of yet another signature-Joan Crawford movie on her substantial shoulders.

This Woman Is Dangerous 1 Jan 2014
By K.D. Pearce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Joan Crawford readily admitted that this was the one film of hers that she disliked the most. As much as I like Joan Crawford, she was not the best judge of her own work. This is a fun, action packed, Warner Brother's romp, with Joan as a criminal mastermind. There's more; she has a medical condition, a handsome doctor, and a jealous lover. You have to experience it, to appreciate it. This is one of my favourite of Joan's Warner Brother's pictures.

Buyer Beware 26 May 2009
By Erwin K. Giesemann III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is another of the Warner Archive releases. Be warned, this will not play on pc's or player/recorders. It will only work on "play only" machines. I'm thrilled that attention is being given to these titles but I can't help but wish that, for the price, they played on all equipment. I'm fortunate enough to have a second viewing set-up but for those who don't it wll be frustrating not to be able to play these titles.

"Wonderful This Film Has A Home On DVD" 27 Jun 2009
By Terrance Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"This Woman Is Dangerous" continues Joan Crawford's foray into her Warner Brother's melodrama period, but it falls short of being nothing more than a movie starring Joan Crawford. The movie just doesn't jell. A shoddy story of a woman, played by Crawford, who is a female gangster who is trying to abolish her past and change her ways. Crawford runs through her scenes and the viewer can tell she is not enjoying herself in this role. There is no direction to speak of and the script is pretty dull. This movie doesn't feature any melodramatic scenes that are evident in other Crawford 1950's films, but it is wonderful that this rare gem has finally found a home on the home video market. As some reviewers have ponted out Warner Brother's has released over a dozen never-before-released titles of Joan's on DVD through their website. Among the other rare titles available are "Mannequin", "Ice Follies of 1939", "The Shining Hour", "Possessed" with Clark Gable", and "Goodbye, My Fancy". All the titles look great with the exception of "Possessed", as the film looks grainy and dirty at times.
"This Woman Is Dangerous" would be Joan's last Warner Brother's film until "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?" in 1962. "This Woman" would be followed by Joan's Oscar nominated role in the excellent "Sudden Fear", in which she co-starred with Jack Palance. In 1973 when asked by an interviewer what her worst film was Joan admitted to detesting "This Woman Is Dangerous". She also told her biographer Roy Newquist, "I must have been awfully hungry. I guess I was. Kids in schools, the house...nothing was right about "This Woman Is Dangerous". A shoddy story, a cliche script, no direction to speak of. The thing just blundered along. I suppose I could have made it better, but it was one of those times that I was so disgusted with everything I just shrugged it off and went along with it. That is unforgivable isn't it?"
This movie also features no bonus features and comes in standard form.

What a performance 8 Oct 2011
By Thomas F. Lath. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Joan Crawford's career took some interesting turns, and this movie is no exception. I have read that she took to role to finish her contract with Warner Bros. Well, Joan, it is a performance. I have watched it many times, and even in material like this, you seem to give it your best shot. Thank you for sharing it with us, even though you did not have many nice things to say about it...
