Joan Crawford Collection, Vol. 2

  
Format:  Joan Crawford Collection, Vol. 2 DVD 
 
 
This five-disc set opens with the tearful melodrama "Sadie McKee" (1934), as maid Joan travels to the big city and is pursued by rakish wastrel Gene Raymond, millionaire Edward Arnold and lawyer Franchot Tone. "Strange Cargo" (1940), Crawford and Clark Gable's eighth film together, is an unusual religious allegory in which a group of Devil's Island escapees fall under the sway of a Christ-like fellow convict. With Peter Lorre, Paul Lukas. Next, plastic surgeon Melvyn Douglas repairs blackmailer Crawford's outward appearance, but cannot heal her scarred soul, in director George Cukor's "A Woman's Face" (1941), with Conrad Veidt. The classic soaper "Flamingo Road" (1949) stars Joan as a carnival dancer stranded in a small Southern town who finds romance with politicos Zachary Scott and David Brian and trouble with corrupt sheriff Sydney Greenstreet; Michael Curtiz directs. And icy Broadway star Crawford forsakes romance for her career, until she meets blind pianist Michael Wilding, in the lush love story "Torch Song" (1953), with Gig Young and Harry Morgan. 8 1/4 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; featurettes; bonus shorts; radio shows; theatrical trailers.
