Joan Crawford was one of the most photogenic and photographed women
on the planet. She inspired sculptors, painters, cartoonists and artists, made a huge impact on fashion, worked with
some of the greatest writers, photographers and directors of her day, had countless love affairs, four children, four
marriages, a career in film, radio and television, and found time to answer fan mail as devotedly as the
fans wrote -- plus do housework and make high-cholesterol recipes! Whew! MGM hairstylist Sydney Guilaroff
said, “I think Joan Crawford was one of the most beautiful women in the
world. Very talented, and with a great sense of drama. I must say, I thought she was extraordinarily natural and sweet.
She was one of the first people to offer me friendship when I came to Hollywood. She had one of the great faces of the century.
Her nose was perfect. It was chiseled.
Right at the bottom of everyone’s nose there’s a little area of imperfection, but with Joan’s it
was finely chiseled right at the very tip end of the nose, and the nostrils had a slight flair.” Director George
Cukor said, “She was in a period when there was glamour in the world and when there were movie queens. Joan Crawford
was in the great tradition of a movie queen."
