Oscar winning star Joan Crawford died on this date in 1977.
She made a name for herself as a flapper in the 1920’s, then starred in the ’30’s, during The Great Depression, in rags-to-riches stories of hard working young women finding love.
She won the best actress Oscar in 1945 in the film noir classic “Mildred Peirce” for the role of a devoted mother with a brat of a daughter.
Later Crawford said:
“Women’s Lib? Poor little things. They always look so unhappy. Have you noticed how bitter their faces are?” – Joan Crawford
