Joan had her Querks, ... as we all do a bit ... but this was a version of her, (""Mommy dearest"") ... perceived by one specific person, ... most don't believe the extent of it ... although some would believe it a possibility.

QueenMystiqueJan 5, 2019

I heard that she was mean in real-life. After watching and reading Mommy Dearest, along with hearing other rumors and stories, I kind of believe that.

wjerryzwjerryzNov 3, 2015

I think Joan Crawford and Bob Mitchum would have made a hot couple

wjerryzwjerryzAug 10, 2015

Joan is gone. But back in the twenties she will always be my fantasy. :-)

iamjbismayJul 9, 2014

Joan wasn't born in 1908 she was born most likely 1905 0r 1906.

Paris098Nov 11, 2013

I love her so much! She's so cute!

rn_tracy1_rnrn_tracy1_rnApr 20, 2013
