Here is a post I made for the new Marie Prevost thread and as it applied to Joan as well, I am putting it here too:
Here is Marie to the right of Joan Crawford in Paid.


Quote:
Cast: Joan Crawford (as "Mary Turner"), Robert Armstrong, Marie Prevost, Kent Douglass, Hale Hamilton, John Miljan, Purnell B. Pratt, Polly Moran, Robert Emmett O'Connor, Tyrell Davis, William Bakewell, George Cooper, Gwen Lee, Isabel Withers.

Credits: From the play "Within the Law" by Bayard Veiller (which opened in NYC on 9/11/1912). Adaptation: Lucien Hubbard and Charles MacArthur. Dialogue: Charles MacArthur. Director: Sam Wood. Camera: Charles Rosher. Editor: Hugh Wynn. Art Direction: Cedric Gibbons. Costume Design: Adrian. Sound: Douglas Shearer.

Notes:

• The film was shot in 31 days at a cost of $529,000 and made MGM a profit of $415,000. (US)

• For her services in Paid, MGM head Louis B. Mayer gave Joan a bonus of $10,000 and wrote: "In appreciation of the co-operation and excellent services rendered by you, we take great pleasure in handing you your check made payable to your order in the amount of $10,000...this does not affect the terms of your contract dated 2 November, 1928." (US)

• Four other versions of Paid were released, all titled Within the Law: In 1916 (silent, with Muriel Starr in the lead role), 1917 (silent, with Alice Joyce), 1923 (silent, with Norma Talmadge), and 1939 (with Ruth Hussey).

• The film was originally slated for Norma Shearer. When she became pregnant, Joan stepped in.

Former silent star Marie Prevost co-starred with Joan and apparently the two became friends--after Marie was found dead in 1937, among her belongings was an uncashed check made out to her and signed by Joan Crawford.

I tried to post this on Friday, but TFS wasn't working (and then I forgot until today ).

Friday (March 23rd) was Ms Crawford's birthday!! She would have been 102! (She passed in 1977.)

Joan in 1933:

Joan in 1933:
that photo of her eyes on the cover page for the site is just incredible. her face was something else. i don't think i've ever seen a person able to translate so many different moods in her look. in fact i don't think i've ever seen a woman or model possess the sort of mercurial, outstanding beauty she does. she could be soft, playful, straight-up gangsta, hardened, moody, sultry.
and she always pulled the respective looks off so damn beautifully!

what i don't like is how some of her color photos make her look terrible; some color her beautiful blue eyes brown! got any photos of her as a blonde? she looked stunning then too.

it's sad that such a capable and talented person has such a hellish legacy as a mom. i can't confirm the veracity of the stories, but they still disturb me as stories alone, no less.

Joan was an interesting character to say the least. To be honest, I don't care whether or not the Mommie Dearest stuff is true, she was such an interesting character and a wonderfully captivating screen personality that it really doesn't matter all that much in terms of her legend.
