Now infamous for her daughter’s scathing portrait in the book and film Mommie Dearest, poor Joan Crawford’s massive and impressive career in film tends to get short shrifted. While not filled with the actress’s greatest work, like Mildred Pierce, Johnny Guitar and The Women, this volume does provide plenty of quality films that showcase why her allure spanned six decades of film.

Extras: Three new featurettes on Crawford, vintage shorts, cartoons, radio shows and recording sessions from Torch Song.

Grade: B+

The Joan Crawford Collection, Vol. 2 is currently available.
