composed of an intricately detailed white organza top and trumpet skirt with contrast black waist tie. She comes complete
with a perfectly matching ribbon headband, beaded bracelet, pantyhose, and faux leather high heels.

Joan is ready for anything in navy blue chiffon day dress featuring meticulous details including tiny buttons, contrast organza
cuffs and wide collar trimmed with ruffles, matching belt, circular flounce at the hem. A stylish cloche hat with ribbon trim,
faux pearl necklace, and faux leather pumps with intricate cut-out detailing complete this handsome ensemble.

of beauty in the form of high quality fashion. Included in this truly glamorous ensemble is a full length, pleated chiffon
dress with intricate shirred detail and striking red and white contrast, paired with a perfectly coordinated beaded bracelet
and faux leather strappy heels.

I was contacted by Blackstone Audio Inc. for the packaging of Charlotte Chandler's new audio book on Joan Crawford "Not
the Girl Next Door." They wanted an image of Joan to use for the cover of the audio jacket. The image you see of Joan

released on February 12th 2008 - same day as the hardcover book. You can purchase the audio book through blackstoneaudio.com
Neil Maciejewski is a Joan Crawford historian, fan and avid collector of Joan Crawford paraphernalia. Neil will be appearing

Our lawyer at the Author's Guild, says:
If you are planning to use an image of a Hollywood celebrity to sell merchandise, California Celebrity Rights Statute
990 requires that you contact that celebrity's estate or representatives to obtain permission and pay a percentage. However,
if you are printing a negative or copying a photo of a Hollywood celebrity solely for personal enjoyment or artistic purposes
(editorial use that conveys information), the following applies.
All Hollywood still photographs and negatives made on or before December 31, 1977 are in the public domain. The revised
copyright law went into effect 1/1/78.
1. The work was made for hire. The film studios hiring the still photographers decided the content of the photographs.
No photographer or estate can claim intellectual copyright on Hollywood publicity photos.
2. The film studios did not copyright either photographic negatives or prints. Once the images appeared in print without
a registered copyright notice, they immediately lapsed into the public domain. This has been established beyond doubt by the
copyright search firm of Thompson and Thompson in Washington, D. C., which states that no motion picture company ever applied
for a copyright for any still photograph made in connection with a Hollywood feature film.
California Civil Code §990 prohibits the unpaid and unlicensed use of celebrity images registered with agencies such as
Curtis Management, but makes important exceptions:
This section shall not apply to the use of a deceased personality's name, voice, signature, photographs, or likeness in
any of the following instances:
(1) A play, book, magazine, newspapers, musical composition, film, radio, or television program . . . .
(2) An advertisement or commercial announcement for use permitted by paragraph . . .
Below are letters I have received from press related items such as, magazines, DVD documentries and photo releases. Thanks
for the support everyone!
I just saw your Legendary Joan Crawford site. I got the link from Out magazine. I don't know how to verify this, but
I delivered newspapers to a house she lived in 1952-53. I collected the money from the maid. One day, I knocked on the side
door but the maid came out the garage door. I saw, through the doorway, the open door of the walk-in refrigerated locker.
Anyway, the house was a modern rancher on a cull-de-sac. It had the redwood siding with some floor to ceiling windows.
The housed backs to the shore in Mamaroneck , New York. I was told she lived there occasionally. The devotement is called
I did see Ms Crawford at the drugstore. My surprise was that she was short in real life. I loved her movies.
I read about your collection and website last night in Out Traveler and vowed that I would take a look at it today.
I've just spent a ridiculous amount of time there and am still not finished and still fascinated! You've done an
admirable job and I congratulate you. I have several celebrity websites myself (Jennifer Jones, Greta Garbo, Deborah Kerr
and more) and understand the amount of work that goes into one.
I was especially fascinated by the information you found on Joan's children. How on earth did you track this down? I've
been trying for years to find information bout Jennifer Jone's children and can't seem to find anything. And I'm a
I've always loved Joan Crawford and I was excited to hear that one of my favorite films - "A Woman's Face" -
is finally being released on dvd. A biography on her is long overdue. I'll be looking forward to your book.
Keep up the great work!
First, I want to tell you I have really enjoyed checking out your site and I know how much work you must have put into
it!!! It's definitely one of the best Joan sites out there!
I thought I'd ask you since I've had no luck looking for this certain piece of Joan memorabilia and I thought you may
have seen one. I'm looking for a photo (if not the real thing) of a cardboard axe that William Castle supposedly handed out
to movie patrons to promote Strait-Jacket. I collect Strait-Jacket memorabilia in particular (and some other Joan things)
and have been looking for even a photo of the axe. It's never appeared on ebay. Any help or info you could give me would be
Just found your site...it has to be the best out there.
You and I share many similarities with regards to our interest/introduction to "Joan". It is nice to know I
am not the only one.
Thank you so much for taking the time to put together your web page so that we may all share in our passion for Joan.
I look forward to more updates and watching the site grow even larger.
