The striking looks of statuesque beauty Joan Crawford weren’t the only reason she is one of the most famous Hollywood actresses of all time. Her early roles in Golden Age classics like Possessed (1931) and George Cukor’s The Women (1939), her later career starring alongside Bette Davis in cult classics What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962) and Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964), and the scathing tell-all written by her adopted daughter Christina, Mommie Dearest, all combine to create the legend of Joan Crawford as an intensely determined woman who made her own way. Joan’s last movie was the Warner Brothers sci-fi thriller Trog (1970). She died seven years later of a heart attack. Although Joan never showed us her gabones, she did manage to raise a bone with the sheer sex appeal that prompted Playboy magazine to name her number 84 out of the 100 Sexiest Women of the 20th Century in 1999.
