~My Top Ten Favorite Joan Crawford Movies~
~Richard Nichols & Joan Crawford in " A Woman's Face."~
1. Mildred Pierce- Just perfect from beginning to end. Great film, cast and story. Crawford's peak.
2. A Woman's Face- Joan should have at least been nominated for an Oscar for this amazing role. This was really a prelude

Rosiland Russell stole this picture, Joan had the best catty one-liners.
6.Sudden Fear-A classic film noir! Great story and intense acting. She won an academy award nomination for her role as

9. Paid- Another rare movie that I have had the pleasure of seeing. This was one of Joan's first real meaty roles that
was original slated for here MGM rival Norma Shearer. Great acting and story for this early piece of work by Joan.
10. Strange Cargo-To me this is Joan and Gable at there best. This was the last movie they did together and it was their
