Ahead of this week’s screening of Joan Crawford in Rain, Lies has very kindly suggested some readings for this week.
“Faces of the American Melodrama: Joan Crawford” in Film Reader 3 (1978), by Jean-Loup Bourget and Chapter 5 of Jeanine Basinger’s A Woman’s View: How Hollywood Spoke to Women, 1930-1960. Wesleyan University Press, 1995, pp. 160-187. (Pages 164-177 are most relevant for discussion of Crawford and Davis.)
