Joan Crawford Television

Joan Crawford made over one hundred television appearances in a twenty-year time frame. She only made thirteen movies after her appearance at the 1953 Academy Awards ceremony (the first one to be telecast) but she was a regular on television. She appeared as a regular guest on talk shows, she was a contestant on game shows, she endorsed products via commercials and she made several cameo appearances on popular variety shows.

Joan Crawford's charisma, charm and comedic flair really showed through on television. This new technology showed a different side of Joan. She was relaxed, candid, funny and her fans adored her even more due to these regular appearances on the small screen. This page will list her extensive television appearences and the current television listings of Joan programs that are being shown currently on the tube! Enjoy!

In the summer of 1939, Parisian socialite Michele de la Becque (Joan) tries to encourage her lover, automotive designer Robert Cortot (Philip Dorn), to come with her to the South of France, but Robert refuses because of the war. The self-centered Michele does not understand and frivolously goes to her favorite couturier, Mme. Montanot, for a new wardrobe. As Michele leaves for her holiday, Robert tries to tell her how important France is to him and to make her understand what the war means, but she dismisses his words. Soon German forces cross France's seemingly impenetrable Maginot Line and Paris is occupied by the Nazis.

Berserk

The Gorgeous Hussy (1936)

In this case, the all star cast just wasn't enough to turn a bad script into a good film. An historical romantic drama with political overtones, 'Peggy' (Joan) is in love with John Randolph (Melvyn Douglas), but she's rejected by him at the beginning of the film when he tells her 'you're too young.' On the rebound she marries Lt. Timberlake (Robert Taylor) but soon after he is killed at sea, leaving Peggy widowed and alone. Going from man to man and gaining herself a reputation as the town Hussy, (hence the name of the film), she eventually marries again and takes John Eaton (Franchot Tone) as her second husband.
