Today the immaculate Joan Crawford turns 105! She was born in San Antonio, Texas (same as me) as Lucille LeSueur, but rose to stardom as the infamous Joan!
I recently watched her in Untamed '29. In the intro she sings and dances a jungle song, and I was blown away by her spunk and tenacity. You can tell the woman had more nerve than most, and a driven ambition that would have shattered lesser souls.
So... all hail the powerhouse that was and is Joan Crawford!

I would love to see some of Tyrone's earlier work from the 30s! I just think he was such a good actor. He was Fox's biggest male star for a long time!

I posted about this film a little while ago, and just recently found this clip on youtube. The video isn't as clear as the film, but I wanted to share it because it contains my favorite scene.
When Montgomery is carrying Shearer, the film is blurry. It creates a very romantic feel, and their flirty banter is adorable. So push through the boring wide dance shot until the end of the video!
