Steve D Dated slow and I don't buy that everything is Harriet's fault. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Efrem M For Joan Crawford fans it's a pretty good movie to watch. Mellow plot. Good performances. Good outbursts. What else is there to say. The interesting thing for me though, is how autobiographical most of her movies actual were, after a certain point for her career. This is a good example of that. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Karen R Tired melodrama where everyone is conditionally blind around this nasty female... ending is left with the usual up the stairs finale... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review ashley h Harriet Craig is an excellent film. It is about Harriet Craig who holds more regard for her home and its possessions than she does for any person in her life. Joan Crawford and Wendell Corey give incredible performances. The screenplay is well written. Vincent Sherman did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama. Harriet Craig is a must see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Joan played this role to perfection. True Hollywood actress. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Now this is type of Joan Crawford vehicle I'm used to; where she plays a crazy person. Kind man Wendell Corey marries Joan, who he quickly finds out is a neurotic and controlling crazy person who cares more about her house and possessions in it over any of the people in her life. Good campy Joan stuff. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
