Watched a Joan Crawford flick last night, A Woman's Face, from 1941. Had an interesting description, so I Tivo'd it.
At first it was hard to get into this one, maybe because it takes place in one of those Nordic countries (Sweden? I forget). Gets better as it goes on. Joan has a scar on the right side of her face, has plastic surgery, and changes her criminal ways, blah, blah. Melvyn Douglas is also in the film. I can't get into anything of his - I keep thinking Mr. Blandings. He always seems to be second to the female.
Hollywood sexism, then and (especially) now
