Movie Stars: Crawford, Joan–Best Films

Humoresque (1946)

In this acclaimed exploration of desire, Crawford plays socialite Helen Wright, a character torn between selfless love and selfish impulses. John Garfield (The Postman Always Rings Twice) matches her as the driven genius. Directed with panache by Jean Negulesco, and featuring an amazing score by Franz Waxman, Humoresque was a box-office smash, a worthy follow-up for Miss Crawford after winning her Oscar for Mildred Pierce. Humoresque has been fully restored from the original camera negative for this release.

Possessed (1947)

Joan Crawford co-stars with Van Heflin and Raymond Massey, and reteams with producer Jerry Wald from her Academy Award-winning performance in Mildred Pierce. She claimed a 1947 Best Actress Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the tempestuous, mentally unstable Louise. This film convinced even the skeptics that Crawford was a great actress.

This film is the first of three collaborations between Joan Crawford and director Vincent Sherman.
