    Joan Crawford is terribly under-represented on DVD. Will her Oscar-winning performance in Mildred Pierce ever be available? What about Flamingo Road or The Women? As a fan of hers it is frustrating not to have more of her movies on DVD. Any other Joan fans here? What would you like to see released?

    How about some of her porn work in the mid-20's? [​IMG]

    Well, I've got "Rain" from that era on Roan dvd, and while there's no full frontal nudity, Joan does show some racey ankle. WOO HOO! [​IMG]

    I'm also a fan. I remember staying up till the wee small hours back in the mid to late '80's to tape her movies off of KTLA when I lived in California. I'd love to see:
    Dancing Lady
    The Women
    Possessed (with Van Heflin)
    Susan and God
    Mildred Pierce
    When Ladies Meet
    Humouresque
    Daisy Kenyon
    Strange Cargo
    Love on the Run
    Flamingo Road
    Goodbye My Fancy
    Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
    Even "Straitjacket" would be fun. Pass on "Trog" though.
    Cheers!

    ...started collecting movies on laserdisc in the early 'eighties, so was able to assemble a nice collection of Joan's movies from the late 'twenties and on through the years, including the Joan Crawford Collection, the Gable and Crawford collection, The Women, Mildred Pierce, among others - and recently a French DVD of Johnny Guitar...
