Joan Crawford (March 23, 1905 – May 10, 1977) was an acclaimed Academy Award winning American actress.

Starting as a dancer, she was signed to a motion picture contract by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios in the mid-1920s and played in small parts. By the end of the '20s, as her popularity grew, she became famous as a youthful flapper. At the beginning of the 1930s, her fame rivaled that of fellow MGM colleagues Norma Shearer and Greta Garbo. She was often cast in movies in which she played hardworking young women who eventually found romance and success. These "rags to riches" stories were well-received by Depression era audiences; women, particularly, seemed to identify with her struggles. By the end of the decade she remained one of Hollywood, Los Angeles, California|Hollywood's most prominent movie stars, and one of the highest paid women in the U.S.

Moving to Warner Bros. in 1943, Crawford won an Academy Award for her performance in ''Mildred Pierce'', and achieved some of the best reviews of her career in the following years. In 1955, she became involved with PepsiCo, the company run by her last husband. She was elected to fill his vacancy on the board of directors after his death in 1959, but was forcibly retired in 1973. She continued acting regularly into the 1960s, when her performances became fewer, and retired from the screen in 1970. By the mid-1970s, she became a recluse due to illness.

I just love her hairy bush

Sorry to disappoint but this is in no way Joan Crawford. Probably just an exploited wannabe lookalike. Besides, the 1948 Crawford was much older than the anonymous woman in this picture. My guess is that this picture was taken in the early to mid thirties-due to hair, make-up and pose.

This was taken by Karsh. That makes it very likely it was indeed Joan Crawford.

Woooow!

Damm !

If Joan Crawford had agreed to a nude portrait by anybody, including Karsh, in 1948, I'd be amazed. The photography looks more like the late 20's, early 30's. This could be Joan, but quite a bit earlier in her career.

I track all famous native Texans, being from Texas myself. I recently read in print, from a very reputeable source, that the youngest twin daughter, Cathy, the other died last year, came out publicly and on the record, and stated that MOST of the events in Cristina's "Mommie Dearest" book were grossly exaggerated. Ironically a few years ago Christina herself said that the wire hanger incident never took place. The writers put it in the movie for effect. As for that photo, I believe it could be Joan, but it wasn't taken in 1948, that's insane. That was at the height of her career. If it is she, it was more than likely taken in the early to mid twenties when she first arrived in Hollywood, and was hungry. It's ironic, she was a great star, and nearly 35 years after her death people are still amazed at her likeness. When she was young, she was amazingly beautiful, as her publicity stills reveal. Especially the George Hurrell stills.

I dig the wire hanger explanation. They didn't really do the bush trimming business until the probably the 70's except the landing strip or valentine heart thing. This is Joan Crawford- you can be sure of that.

No, the wire hanger thing as represented in the movie probably didn't happen. But-ask Angela Landsbury- she won't lie- she knows that sheeyot was going on. She was a thucking vampire spawn of Satan Bitch from hell.

Even with all the Mommy Dearest crap that surely went on- she was a hell of an actress.

In the movie Johnny Guitar she scared me with those evil glaring eyes.

You've got to be kidding me. It doesn't even look like Joan Crawford.
