Using primary sources and interviews, Fred Guiles provides the life behind the legend.

Joan Crawford : the last word by Fred Lawrence Guiles( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her heyday Joan Crawford was probably the most imitated woman in the world. Magazine covers featured her face, and high school and college girls copied her makeup and clothing. Her remarkable progression from silent films to talkies to television exemplified her ability to adapt, chameleonlike, to the ever-changing demands of the industry that in many senses invented her. Joan Crawford: The Last Word does not cloak the dark side of Crawford's nature. This unbiased account restores the much-needed balance between those who regard her as the monster depicted in Mommie Dearest and the truth about a legendary star
