The trusty mouse once again did it's job, and picked for us a Sunday Star: Joan Crawford. After I'd finished questioning the mouse's obviously questionable sanity, I decided that I'd just get down to business and post...
^Probably my favourite photo of her :)
Well, I honestly don't have much to say about Joan, good or bad. One thing that I do love about Joan is the many amazing photos of her. There's something so incredible about her photos, they just mesmerise me. So, whilst I'm thinking of something to say, here are a few of my favourites...
^That is just such a beautiful photo! :')
Well, I've thought. I still don't know what to say, but I ought to say something! ;D
You probably already know this, but I don't particularly think much of Joan as an actress (don't get me wrong, she was immense in several of her films, but, on the whole, she's not my favourite...), however, I'm hard pressed to think of someone who was more of a star than Joan.
There's no denying Joan was a movie star of the first magnitude. I personally have more respect for great actresses (*cough*Bette*cough*), but movie stars like Joan just fascinate me....I don't know why!
Having said that I don't particularly like Joan as an actress, I must say that I love "silent Joan". She was one of the lucky actresses who made a successful transition from silent to sound, but I really do love her silent films.
Her face was perfect for silents and, quite honestly, with the exception of a few of her sound films, I enjoy her 4 years of silents a lot more than her 40 years of talkies.
I would love to have written (typed) more, but I've not been very well for the last few days and I lack the motivation to write anything much, so this will have to suffice for now. Hopefully very soon I'll be able to compile more interesting posts! A presto! :)
