Joan Crawford-Possessed (1947)
I just watched Possessed (1947) last night, starring Joan Crawford as a deranged woman who is obsessed with Van Heflin. Although the plot is somewhat dated and non believable in the realm of current films, it was nonetheless highly entertaining as a piece of high camp. According to Crawford, Possessed was the most challenging role of her career. Most notable though was the highly nourish cinematography by Joseph A. Valentine and musical score by Franz Waxman (Sunset Blvd,Bride Of Frankenstein, etc).
