The book hit the head-line, The kiss and tell story of Loan Crawford daughter exposing child abuse. It is not always easy watching and it give an insight into the screen ledge of the Hollywood era and what the studios would do to keep them happy and also cover up when things went wrong. I think if you put it in context of attitude of the time, (slapping kids was acceptable), bring them up under strict rules and keeping them in line the norm. It shows how over stepping the mark was ignored or swept under the carpet. Faye Dunaway is brilliant in it and I love her for it. I know it's become a "mocked" film and "mimicked" film in many gay bars or copied by drag acts around the world. But I think it is worth a watch and I felt both sorry for Joan and her daughter by the end.
