Joan Crawford Canvas Print
Joan Crawford (born Lucille Fay LeSueur; March 23, 1904 – May 10, 1977) was an American film and television actress who began her career as a dancer in traveling theatrical companies before debuting as a chorus girl on Broadway
By the time she was born, her parents had separated, and by the time she was a teenager, she'd had three stepfathers. It wasn't an easy life; Crawford worked a variety of menial jobs.
Before long, she was dancing in big Midwestern and East Coast cities. After almost two years, she packed her bags and moved to Hollywood. Crawford was determined to succeed, and shortly after arriving she got her first bit part, as a showgirl in Pretty Ladies (1925).
Bette Davis and Joan Crawford had a longstanding rivalry that may have helped fuel their phenomenally vitriolic and well-received performances. (Earlier in their careers, Davis said of Crawford, "She's slept with every male star at MGM except Lassie," and Crawford said of Davis, "I don't hate [her] even though the press wants me to. I resent her. I don't see how she built a career out of a set of mannerisms instead of real acting ability. Take away the pop eyes, the cigarette, and those funny clipped words, and what have you got? She's phony, but I guess the public really likes that".)
✨ Joan Crawford Trade Marks
★ Glamorous sense of fashion
★ Frequently played women put through an extensive amount of suffering
★ Later in her career, her large eyebrows and "smear" lipstick
★ Shoulder pads
Each time Crawford married, she changed the name of her Brentwood estate and installed all new toilet seats.
After her friend Steven Spielberg hit it big, Joan sent him periodic notes of congratulations. The last one came two weeks before her death.
She had a cleanliness obsession. She used to wash her hands every ten minutes and follow guests around her house wiping everything they touched, especially doorknobs and pieces from her china set.
She was named as "the other woman" in at least two divorces.
Was forced by MGM boss Louis B. Mayer to drop her real name Lucille LeSueur because it sounded too much like "sewer".
✨ Joan Crawford Quotes:
"I need sex for a clear complexion, but I'd rather do it for love."
"Norma Shearer made me change my costume sixteen times because every one was prettier than hers. I love to play bitches and she helped me in this part."
"Love is fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell."
