the 1 & only Mommie Dearest, Miss. Joan Crawford... Don't make silver screen icons like this no more...
Just asked my Mam for something and called her Mommie Dearest so she'd say yeah, her response was "no wire hangers"...SOZ Joan Crawford ✋
The Joan Crawford that I've heard about in 'Mommie Dearest' is not the Joan Crawford I knew back when. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.
I had what is rumored to have been Joan Crawford's favorite chicken salad for lunch. Mommie Dearest knew her chicken salad...
So this reading list challenge that's been going around, well, I guess it's better than the ice bucket challenge! My list is very informal, much like me, of course ; ) 10. Vanna Speaks! by Vanna White. 9. Anything by Jackie or Joan Collins. 8. Anything by Joan Rivers. 9. Anything by the late Joan Crawford. "My Way of Life" is a particular favorite on how to live life graciously while being crocked. 8. Remembrance of Things Past, by Proust, for when I want some light reading. 7. The Corrections, for when I'm tired of watching paint dry. 6. Fifty Shades of *** by RuPaul. 5. Sex by Madonna, because I can never get enough of seeing Madge make out with Vanilla Ice. 4. Any books with teenage vampires. 3. Any books with wizards and whatnot. 2. Any celebrity memoir called: "INSERT NAME: My Life." 1. "Mommie Dearest." Because I too, hate wire hangers.

Oh my gosh! The movie, "Mommie Dearest" is on Sundance channel. I haven't seen this in 20 years. It's about Joan Crawford's real life. It was written by her daughter. This is a crazy movie!
Bio-Pics of well-know celebrities do notoriously bad at the box-office. One such film to have overcome this "box-office poison" tag and be elevated to the ranks of the "classics"(at least in Camp Culture) is the remarkable bio-pic of the late 40s actress Joan Crawford ("What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?"). The film was adapted from the book her adopted daughter Christina wrote about the horrors she and her adopted brother endured growing up as the children of the Wicked Witch Of Beverly Hills: the screaming, the slaps,the force-feeding of food, the beatings with WIRE HANGERS(!), the night terrors of being dragged out of bed at midnight by an insane, terrifying "mother" and forced to get on hands and knees, scrubbing the bathroom floor and toilet! Daughter Christina got her back (revenge) following the death of her un-mourned Mum by writing this tale of growing up with a Hollywood monster for a parent, all the while, as Christina relates, "Mommie Dearest" presented herself to her "adoring fans" as the consu ...
subjecting oneself to mommie dearest brings on the desire to want to be Joan Crawford or Faye Dunaway or maybe both.
FREE PASS: It almost was "Annie Dearest." The original vision for the film adaptation of "Mommie Dearest" was to have the project helmed by director Franco Zefferelli and star Anne Bancroft as the legendary Joan Crawford. Previous committments prevented those two from coming together; instead, Frank Perry took the project, and Bancroft walked off, apparently unhappy with Perry's vision for the story.
Joan Crawford was a nut. Watching Mommie Dearest was a bad idea.
Yep. I think its gonna be a Joan Crawford kinda night...Gonna watch Mommie Dearest in the background and put my clothes up.. with "Plastic" hangers... I'm not stupid.you should never put a 200.00 dress on wire hanger for sure ! ;)
In this picture of Lowe's State Theater we jump 20 years into 1953. A new marquee! Joan Crawford is back, presumably too mature to still be adorable, starring in "Torch Song" with Michael Wilding and the benighted Gig Young. A archtypical Hollywood potboiler, Torch Song has Mommie Dearest playing herself in the person of Jenny Stewart, a tough Broadway musical star who alienates her colleagues with her neurotic demands for absolute perfection. A second feature, "Black Fury" is offered. This pro-trade union film was almost 20 years old at this time. An odd choice to be sure.
FOR all the people who believe Christina Crawford made up those terrible things in her memoir ''Mommie Dearest,'' the appeal of Mildred Pierce (1945) is Joan Crawford's Oscar-winning portrayal of

Watching Mommie Dearest and taking comfort in the fact that , no matter how crazy I get, I'll never be Joan Crawford crazy.
The unintended hilarity and near-kabuki stylings of "Mommie Dearest" are certainly timeless. While it may be hard to believe, the 1981 Joan Crawford biopic that nearly ruined star Faye Dunaway's career and introduced lines like "No wire hangers!" into the pop cultural lexicon was released exactly 32...
“don't fxck with me fellas. this ain't my first time at the rodeo.”. — Joan Crawford, Mommie Dearest

Contrary to the caricature of Joan Crawford in "Mommie Dearest," I actually need more wire hangers.
After seeing Mommie Dearest I can't take anything with Joan Crawford seriously.
MOMMIE DEAREST Joan Crawford: You are a lousy substitute for someone who really cares.
I wonder if Kim K is going to turn into the Mommie Dearest version of Joan Crawford as she gets older?
The only way I can compare going to work is when Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in "Mommie Dearest" sees Christina in the mirror pretending to be her, and 'Joan' proceeds to cut all her hair off and verbally abuses her. I'm Christina. But I'll get the last laugh.
Cannot possibly say it enough. I LOVE Joan Crawford. Mommie Dearest/book/movie=biggest LIE to ever exist.

Who's the worst TV or movie mom of all time? I'm going Betty Draper & Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest. Happy Mother's day!
Christina Crawford endured a childhood both glamorous and frightening. She wrote about her experiences in "Mommie Dearest," her book about growing up the adoptive daughter of Joan Crawford. Now she’s coming to NYC with a show about her experiences.
Unknowingly bought a copy of "Mommie Dearest" on Amazon from Joan Crawford's daughter, and she sent a signed copy. How cool is that?
Reminiscent of famous Joan Crawford line in Mommie Dearest: "Dont f*** with me fellas. This ain't my first time at the rodeo."

Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest! Great acting, the facial expressions wow! Most terrifying mom in the world!
TODAY we SALUTE the unique insight and precision-tool prose of Pauline Kael. (Thanks, Carol Porter for giving me these books so long ago. With Chris Palmer.) "In a scene in the sterile Crawford mansion, Joan is on her hands and knees vigorously scrubbing her own shrine. She's proving her right to be a star the only way she knows — by compulsive, punishing work. She has to scrub the floor because the maids don't get it clean enough; if they did, they wouldn't be maids." Mommie Dearest, October 12, 1981 "In 'The Empire Strikes Back,' when Han Solo was frozen into sculpture — his face protruding from a bas-relief, the mouth open as if calling out in pain — the scene had a terrifying grandeur.In ['Return of the Jedi']...when Leia finally frees Han Solo from his living death as sculpture, the scene has almost no emotional weight. It's as if Han had locked himself in the garage, tapped on the door, and been let out." Return of the Jedi, May 30, 1983 "The movie is stirring, on a very stupid level..." An Of ...
I've seen a lot of horror films, but Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest will always be the scariest movie character I've ever seen.
In 1978 Christina Crawford exposed her filmstar mother Joan as a cruel, abusive alcoholic in the memoir Mommie Dearest. On the book's reissue, she gives her first interview in a decade to Elizabeth Day
remembering a friend...I learned today from the son of my good friend Bob in Kansas. Bob passed away last night peacefully in his sleep. He had been the one I spoke about with lung cancer. Seems it had also spread to other places, He had been in Hospice since January. I called over there to speak to him, The last time we did talk was after Thanksgiving, he was often asleep and sometimes confused, I did get to speak through a nurse there, she told him what I said and he responded a bit, he was difficult to hear, the cancer affected his voice. Bob was 78, he had retired from Universal Studios, he and his ex wife both worked there, she was a stand in for Angela Landsbury and he worked sets. They used to breakfast with Tony Curtis and he had a crush on Rock Hudson whom he said was a very kind man. He also was a friend to Christina Crawford of the notorious "Mommie Dearest" book fame, he had met Joan Crawford on several occasions and he used to drive Betty Davis to her sets, she liked Bob and would always ask ...

ON 'MOMMIE DEAREST,' PATTY HEARST AND THE U.S.S. PUEBLO HOSTAGE AFFAIR Some seek fame, achieve it and revel in it. Others want it, more or less earn it, then detest it once they do possess it. Still others don't search for it, are completely surprised when it does come their way and regard it warily upon its arrival. There is the quintessential angry child's star, Christina Crawford, daughter of movie star Joan Crawford and author of the infamous "Mommie Dearest." Theires the soft-spoken Navy career man, Lloyd Bucher, skipper of the intelliogence ship, Pueblo, that was captured by the North Koreans on Jan. 23, 1968. In between the two extremes are people like San Diego daredevil daredevil StevenLewis, who, so he could appear on the ABC series "That's Incredible!" years ago tried to jump over two cars speeding 100 miles per hour at him -- and missed, winding up in hospital instead. Then there is Jane Barbe, famous -- and unknown -- at the same time -- as the "time of day lady" we dialed on the telephone. A ...

That scene in "Mommie Dearest" when Joan Crawford is meeting with the board of Pepsi Co., after the death of Alfred Steele. PRICELESS!!! Her eyebrows were definitely a precursor to Sesame Street.

Lord, I love my psych teacher, but the other day he told the class that Mommie Dearest is about Joan Crawford's daughter Liza Minnelli.
Not everything that glitters is gold. My step-dad was nicknamed Candy Man; he was well known for his generosity as he distributed goods barring none. He also had a green thumb as he produced one of the best gardens in the south. However, despite his charitable disposition he was a sexual predator and an emotional murderer; he sexually molested his children behind closed doors and slaughtered their self-esteem. Let me repeat, just because it glitters does not mean its gold. If you really want to know what a father, pastor or politician is all about - ASK THEIR CHLDREN. Children have the uncanny ability to present the facts from an angle of experience that is supported by a storehouse of accumulated knowledge. If you do not believe me just ask Joan Crawford's daughter (Mommie Dearest) or Bing Crosby's (Gary Crosby, Going My Way, 1983) sons.
I recently discovered that my favorite MGM cartoon can only be bought in digital form with Joan Crawford's Strange Cargo! Bummer, man. Anyone who may have noticed my Mommie Dearest references yesterday...well that is the reason. Traumatic frustration. Mes apologes.

Watching "Mildred Pierce" with Joan Crawford. Great film! Love old films where being well groomed and dressed was a way of life. It's a shame that Joan Crawford's reptuation was soiled by Christina's "Mommie Dearest." I just don't believe it.she was disinherited and took it out on her mother AFTER her death.she was a spoiled brat in my opinion. I've actually done quite a bit of research on this. Always fascinated me.
On mother's day we watched Mommie Dearest. The perfect way to REALLY appreciate our loving mothers. "No... wire... hangers!" -Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford: Did you scrub the bathroom floor today? DID YOU? Christina Crawford: Yes, Mommie. Joan Crawford: Yes, Mommie what? Christina Crawford: Yes, Mommie Dearest. Joan Crawford: When I told you to call me that, I wanted you to mean it.

I'm feeling very Joan Crawford today. I may have to hunt down Mommie Dearest for a sit through.
Anyone who has ever taken "Mommie Dearest" at it's word, should do online research - Joan Crawford was a beautiful, thoughtful lady, by all accounts, her daughter is a jealous, spiteful brat, who waited until her mother died to publish her slander. I believe the truth lies somewhere between the women's versions. Joan's other daughter, who denies any abuse, also sold Joan's only Oscar at auction in 1993 - ungrateful.

I just stumbled upon "Mildred Pierce" a 1945 film which won Joan Crawford an Oscar. Ironically, I've been googling/youtubin Joan and Christina Crawford most of the afternoon, after this morning's showing of "Mommie Dearest". I have done nothing but think of the actress as evil and scary since 1981, now, for the first time, I wonder how truthful Christina was. She's the only 1 of 4 children to tell such tales . . .

Mommie Dearest: because nothing says Mothers Day like staying up until 5 in the morning reminding yourself you love your mom for not being Joan Crawford.
May 10 On this day in 1977, legendary actress Joan Crawford died of a heart attack at her home in New York. Crawford was born Lucille LeSeur in San Antonio in 1906. As a teenager, she caught the eye of a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer talent scout and moved to Hollywood in 1925. MGM head Louis B. Mayer launched a fan-magazine contest to find her a new name. The result was "Joan Crawford," a name she never liked. Her career with MGM stretched from 1925 to 1942, and she became one of that company's biggest stars. In 1942 she moved to rival Warner Brothers and revived her career by playing strong-willed maternal figures, as in Mildred Pierce (1945), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. In all, her film career spanned more than forty years and included performances in more than eighty films. She was married four times and adopted four children who later claimed that she treated them harshly. A year after her death her daughter Christina published Mommie Dearest, a scathing autobiography of growing up as ...
