5.0 out of 5 stars What A Woman! What A Face!, 13 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Joan Crawford - Movie Star - Ultimate Star - Raging Star - whichever way you dress it up this woman remains, more than 30 years after her death, the definition of a star.

This eclectic second volume of Crawford films demonstrates again her indelible contribution to the history of American culture. Whatever your views are on her acting, her appearance, her voice, - she demands your attention every second she is on screen.

Watch these films and marvel at Hollywood's gold standard in Star Quality - she has no equal

5.0 out of 5 stars Crawford at her best - A geniune screen icon, 17 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent introduction to Crawford. Long regarded as the ultimate hollywood star, her acting skills were often overlooked in favour of her massively commanding screen presence. This much fabled "star quality" really does dazzle on screen and these films provide a great reason to see it in action.

The collection also serves to demonstrate that Crawford is an actress with unique and subtle skills

These films hold up really well and there are some amazing performances here, including the Oscar winning role of Mildred Pierce. Crawford remains endlessly watchable for any casual film fan or the most devoted film buff, due in no small part to her screen acting style which she has developed to a sophistcated and tremendously engaging level - She knows how to draw in an audience and keep it hooked!

The fact that she remains a source of fascination is testement to her talents as an actress as well as her indomitable star quality.

These are stylysh, entertaining and quality films which are well worth revisiting. No wonder this woman remains the hollywood star icon against whom the rest have to be measured.

4.0 out of 5 stars Choose your own relish for this ham, 13 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Extraordinarily, Bette Davis continues to be held in admiration by many as a great screen actress. This selection of films must surely prove that her amazing legacy to cinema really does need to be reassessed. She has undeniable screen presence and is always watchable, but the woman does not have a subtle bone in her body. Every gesture is over-wrought,her attempts at accents are laughable and she is ludicruously miscast in some cases.

Nevertheless this is a hugely enjoyable collection of films from a charsimatic star of the highest ranking - just don't fall for the hype about her being a great actress.
