PHOTO OF THE DAY: JOAN AND OSCAR

It’s not a dream.

She can’t quite believe it.

 

Joan Crawford and her Oscar for MILDRED PIERCE. She had to leave her long time home, MGM to get it at Warner Brothers.

Mildred Pierce was only Joan’s second film for Warners. She hit the jackpot. After 70 movies at MGM.

(Olivia De Havilland had to leave Warners to get her Oscars.)

Joan wasn’t well enough to attend the Oscar ceremonies.

Love the perfume bottles scattered on the bed.

Makeup and hair in order before the camera rolled!

  1. Don’t think that they are perfume bottles – they look like spent flashbulbs to me – Joan was always very accommodating to the Press. Any chance of a photo opportunity!
