She was beautiful, talented, irascible, ruthless, vulnerable, and a true Hollywood legend. From abused child to dance-hall entertainer to silent-film actress, she went on to become one of Hollywood's screen goddesses with films such as Possessed opposite Clark Gable, with whom she began a torrid off-screen affair; Grand Hotel; and Mildred Pierce, her Academy Award-winning film. Joan Crawford succeeded and survived through sheer determination, talent, invention, and re-invention.

Now, Charlotte Chandler, the acclaimed biographer of Ingrid Bergman (Ingrid), Bette Davis (The Girl Who Walked Home Alone), and Groucho Marx (Hello, I Must Be Going), gives us a revealing and often surprising portrait of Joan Crawford, much of it in Joan Crawford's own words.

    " An O K book. I would have liked it better if it was a book with more depth. "

    " A somewhat interesting read about the life of Hollywood actress Joan Crawford. It is mostly composed of quotes from Crawford and several other people who knew or where married to her. It is a very positive portrayal of her so contrasts with her daughter's Mommie Dearest biography. "

    " This book is wonderful! Especially for those who only know her from "Mommie Dearest" infamy. You get to know the real Joan Crawford and what a strong, amazing woman she actually was and not the monster her adopted daughter invented. "
