This film is perhaps best known for Faye Dunaway's over-the-top portrayal of Joan Crawford with the fact it would go on to ruin her career and what was intended to be an Oscar-caliber biopic turned instead into a Razzie-winning camp classic. And yet, I liked this film quite a bit. Many scenes that would go on in infamy like "No wire hangers!", "Bring me the axe Tina!" and Crawford strangling Chris... read more

It is 1939, Joan Crawford is one of Hollywood's biggest stars. But she tells boyfriend lawyer Greg Savitt that she isn't content living in her Brentwood mansion with just her devoted secretary Carol Ann and housekeeper Helga. Greg arranges for Joan to adopt a baby girl. Joan names her Christina and promises "to give her all the things I never had." But Joan is obsessed with perfection, and Christina finds it impossible to live up to her mother's standards. Written by alfiehitchie

“This film is perhaps best known for Faye Dunaway's over-the-top portrayal of Joan Crawford with the fact it would go on to ruin her career and what was intended to be an Oscar-caliber biopic turned instead into a Razzie-winning camp classic. And yet, I liked this film quite a bit. Many scenes that would go on in infamy like "No wire hangers!", "Bring me the axe Tina!" and Crawford strangling Christina after her daughter declares she is not one of her fans is just an extreme part of its cult value and that indeed is thanks to Faye Dunaway. Based on Christina Crawford's autobiography about what was like living with her famous mom by claiming she was abusive towards her, you can definitely see why everything about it is "so bad it's good" and clearly didn't deserve the negative reviews it got” read more
