So far I've only watched Queen Bee - it was good film making, acting, etc. - but the film noir story line written by producer Ranald McDougall was far too campy/over the top (for me). Spoiler ahead warning - like Carol's suicide.
I did enjoy Joan's acting in the film - she was 51 in 1955. I'll be trying the others sometime in the future.

Well, I do know one thing for certain - When it comes to the likes of a "Joan Crawford" picture (especially one from the glorious 1950s), the viewer can usually count on it being a good, solid drama with plenty of barbed-wire dialogue and, yes, vicious treachery thrown in to spice up the impending situation.

Bolstered by a bevy of big-name co-stars (such as Vera Miles, Lorne Greene, and Cliff Robertson) and backed by a slew of first-rate screenwriters (penning tailor-made scripts), Joan Crawford (aka. Mommie Dearest) was the ultimate drama queen and a consummate movie-star whose aura shone like a brilliant super-nova throughout the 1950s.

This "Joan Crawford" collection showcases 4 of her best remembered vehicles from that glamorous decade of yesteryear. All filmed in glossy b&w - 2 of my choices in this set are Harriet Craig (1950) and Queen Bee (1955).
