Like her or not you have to admit, she was a major presence in noir:
The Damned Don't Cry
Two noir movies of Joan that are underrated, This Woman Is Dangerous (1952); Female on the Beach (1955).
This Woman is Dangerous (trailer smells of cheese)
Joan Crawford introduces her noirs... I have no idea where this is from but it's money.

Joan was one of the actresses people seemed to either love or hate. I'm a fan myself, for her contributions to noir, and film history in general.
An amazing performance by Chaney. Crawford credited her experience working with Chaney on this film as teaching her the difference between standing in front of the camera and acting in front of the camera.She's in Todd Browning's amazing The Unknown, with Lon Chaney.

Don't forget "Johnny Guitar"!
Watched "Sudden Fear" - nice film that really got rolling about halfway through-although I figured out how it was going to end. Was not entirely convinced by Joan's change of heart at the end, but overall a strong performance. Kinda shocking that there is no quality dvd release of this.
