This is an easy to overlook movie from Joan Crawford's noir lead renaissance in the late 40s.

Most of them were made by her home studio Warner Brothers, but for this one, she was loaned out to 20th Century Fox. It is not as well known, or readily available as her WB films.

The style of this movie is clearly noir, but the subject matter is a love triangle. Where is the murder, or the serious mental illness, or the organised crime syndicate? The subject matter seems a bit at odds with the style. That is not to say that it makes it a bad movie, but it can be heavy going for a relatively simple and benign plot.

Joan is well at home in the genre, and wrings every emotion from her lines. Here she looks and acts most like 'Mildred Pierce' of all her other movies. Dana Andrews and especially Henry Fonda provide excellent foils for her.

The disc has a good 'making of' featurette, and another about producer Otto Preminger.

If you are a fan of Joan Crawford you will love it.

Daisy Kenyon (Joan Crawford) is a lovelorn commercial artist caught in a romantic triangle with two men - one she loves but cannot have and one who's love she cannot return. While in an emotionally draining love affair with married attorney Dan O'Mara (Dana Andrews), who refuses to leave his wife, she meets returning army sergeant Peter Lapham (Henry Fonda) "a decent and gentle man" who instantly falls in love with her. Although she carries a torch for Dan, she knows Peter will give her the secure life she desires and she agrees to marry him. But when Dan divorces his wife, Daisy is suddenly torn between her obligations¡­and her passions.

This 1947 black and white movie is a very good, very pleasant to watch drama/romance and I really liked it - but IT IS DEFINITELY NOT FILM NOIR! Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Daisy Kenyon (Joan Crawford) is a proud, independent artist who for years now had an affair with rich, successful lawyer named Dan O'Mara (Dana Andrews) - a man married, with children. Then one day she meets a slightly weird but strangely appealing war veteran named Peter Lapham (Henry Fonda) - and what was an uncomfortable love triangle becomes a really messy square...

This is a very good film, with some twists and a really, REALLY great ending. All the three main actors give a great show, with Dana Andrews actually managing to steal the show in what was definitely one of his greatest roles... BUT one thing must be stated here loud and clear - contrary to what is written on the DVD box, this is NOT A FILM NOIR. A drama, a romance, even a tinsy little bit of romantic comedy (but only in some scenes), yes - but film noir, NO!

I cannot be much more specific to avoid crippling spoilers, but I will just say that you should not expect here any gangsters, private detectives or police officers. On another hand, as the cover of the DVD box suggests, dramatic phone conversations play a great role here and Otto Preminger managed actually to show in one scene an otherwise innocently looking phone as a tool of excruciating torture - but with just one heart-breaking exception that is mostly as far as the violence in this film goes.

Some reviewers considered Joan Crawford, who was at that time 43, as a little bit too old for this role, but I disagree. She looks here as a woman between 35 and 40 and that is exactly as it should be.

Daisy Kenyon was conceived by Daryll Zanuck and 20th Century Fox as a 'woman's picture' in the film noir manner. Oscar Preminger, a Fox staff director at this time, was assigned to direct it, Joan Crawford hired to star and she in turn pressed for Dana Andrews and Henry Fonda to co-star.

The film has Andrews (an unhappily married lawyer) and Fonda (damaged by his tough war experiences) locked in a love triangle as the two men compete for the Crawford's affections. Both have emotional problems to cope with while desperate to overcome their rival, and one of the intelligent features of the movie is that they conduct this rivalry by Queensberry rules, eschewing the trite punch-up and barrack-room brawling in favour of debate. Andrews' and Fonda's characters are more interesting that Crawford in that they have a capacity for explained change whereas she remains at the end essentially the same as she was at the start.

The two male stars also have low-key, very effective acting styles here (as usually elsewhere, too) that contrast with Crawford's tendency to telegraph her emotions, even though Oscar Preminger keeps her tendency to emote well in check. She's also too old for the part and never interesting enough in what she says or how she looks to explain why these two men chase persistently after her - this is substantially a drawback of the script and leaves a bit of a blank at the centre of the picture. But Preminger's careful direction has energy and style in a way that's now right out of fashion - few close-ups and little rapid cutting, and the set design is a delight.

This is no. 23 in the R1 Fox Film Noir series, and the best special feature is a commentary by film historian Foster Hirsch - well-informed, insightful and never wordy.
