    When will TCM show this film again. Joan's fans want to watch it and it has not been on in years.

    Joan Crawford... her performance in this melts my heart, especially her inner struggles. But words are meaningless and forgetable, you need to see it and feel it, its the only way...

    I'm undecided about whether I believe this film is a classic or not. That's why I think it's an interesting choice TCM made to broadcast it. Perhaps I'll need to watch it again before I can decide. I wouldn't say it was one of Miss Crawford's better performances, but it's certainly not her worst.

    Why Joan Crawford was not nominated for an Academy Award in this magnificent performance is a mystery yet one that is fully explainable. Greer Garson was starting her ascendencey to the MGM throne as first lady replacing Norma Shearer. Louis B. Mayer who was the indisputable head of MGM never liked movies that had dark, somber, sinister themes such as A WOMAN'S FACE. He was very much against Crawford taking on such unsympathetic roles as this one or Crystal Allen in THE WOMEN. It would stand to reason that Mr. Mayer did not back Crawford in her bid for an Oscar and since the movie did not do phenomanally at the box office he didn't feel it worth the effort of promoting Crawford for an Oscar whereas Gree Garson was starring in the family oriented film BLOSSOMS IN THE DUST which was much better suited to Mr. Mayer's sensibilities and which performed very well at the box office thereby warranting his support of Garson when it came time to showing his support at Oscar time. So Garson got the bid for MGM's best actress instead of Crawford. It is a shame, because whenever Crawford branches out and does superlative work outside the MGM stereotype of what she should be she is never supported byt the hierarchy. This is one of her greatest performances heralding the wonderful work she would later do at Warner Borthers. Brava Joan. You may not have been appreciated in your time but those in the know are thorougly aware of your great, great contribution to cinema actin and art.

  • One of Crawford's best...

    Joan Crawford's A Woman's Face is one of her greatest preformances. A must-see for Crawford and classic movie fans. Suprisingly, like most of Joan Crawford's MGM movies, it is not available on DVD. Classic movie distributers should release her better movies, instead most of her DVD movies are her poorer roles such as Trog and I Saw What You Did. Hopefully soon, a second Joan Crawford box set will be released with her earlier MGM movies and her greater preformances.
