The fact that Norma Shearer and Joan Crawford would consent to appear
in a movie together is amazing. Shearer in 1939 was the queen of MGM,
being the widow of Irving Thalberg, and had her choice of material and
co-stars. Crawford, although a power in her own right, didn't have
Shearer's pull and complained bitterly about it. Crawford agreed to
take the somewhat supporting, albeit juicy, role because she needed an
A picture after a string of flops. So she had to suck it up to work
The two stars had only one scene alone together, and there were no
reported problems, except one. Director George Cukor sent Crawford home
early when she caused a distraction by loudly clicking her knitting
needles off camera as Shearer tried to do her close-ups.
Crawford was proved right in taking the movie, it's one of her most
memorable and, finally for once, villainous roles. As Crystal Allen,
the scheming shopgirl out to sleep her way to a Park Avenue penthouse,
she was ideally cast. It was her life.
Rosalind Russell, previously not known as a comedienne, surprised
everyone with her rapid-fire sarcastic delivery. She would continue to
perfect the biting style for 20 years until she reached the pinnacle
with Auntie Mame. Roz gives the strongest performance of the film as
the viciously catty Sylvia Fowler, and I don't think Shearer or
Crawford knew what hit them.
As for the long-suffering, hair-clutching, heavy-sighing Norma Shearer,
even she was able to make the difficult role of saintly Mary Haines
memorable. One of her best moments is when she raises her nails and
growls "I've had two years to grow claws, Mother, and they're Jungle
Red!," and then goes to take her man back from Crawford. Unfortunately,
Shearer has a few Silent Screen moments that look out of place, such as
collapsing and weeping at her mother's knee. But she makes the
character warm and likable and we root for her to win.
There are many gems in the supporting cast. Most spectacular is Mary
Boland as the heavy-drinking, high-living Countess De Lave. "L'amour
L'amour" she wails as she's about to divorce her fourth studly husband
-- for trying to kill her.
Paulette Goddard, the most beautiful member of the cast, is the best
I've seen her, as the streetwise Miriam Aarons. Like Crawford, she
plays a role she understands, the chorus girl who snags a millionaire.
But unlike Crystal, Miriam has a heart -- and Goddard is great at
doling out straight-shooting advice and rolling out put-downs under her
Marjorie Main gives a preview of the persona she would later use as Ma
Kettle. It was the first time she was able to step out and create the
character, and she used it the rest of her career. I never tired of her
raucous horse laugh.
I hope Hollywood has the good sense not to attempt a remake with an
update of this classic. Time would not be kind. It is a priceless
diamond in a golden setting.
