Steve D Crawford is the only reason to watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review ogn d "When summing up the film in the New York Times, Howard Thompson, the film critic known for his one line reviews, simply stated: "This picture is trash."" Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Joan Crawford plays a the leader of a gang who finds herself having to undergo surgery in order to save her eyesight, only to fall in love with her doctor, Dennis Morgan. However, things get messy when her former boyfriend and fellow gang member gets wind of the budding romance. Crawford plays her usual tough self and that's enough to carry this overly tired story of a criminal seeking to leave their life of crime and go straight. Reportedly Jack L. Warner offered Crawford this tired story expecting her to turn it down so he could put the costly star on suspension, but to his surprise she took the part. Following this film, Crawford negotiated her release from her Warner Bros. contract. Crawford once said this was the only film she regretted ever making (and she even said that after filming "Trog," the film about an unfrozen caveman who goes berserk), but "This Woman is Dangerous" is still an entertaining film and watchable mostly thanks to a strong performance by the always fascinating Crawford in the lead. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Strictly B stuff which Crawford considered her worst movie, conveniently forgetting the atrocious Ice Follies of 1939. Her part is something she could play in her sleep, a tough dame who finds herself in a tight spot. The thing is that even though Joan is elegantly gowned her surroundings are unquestionably cheapjack something she sensed did not bode well for her future at Warners, she negotiated her exit and this was her last film for them. It's not just that the sets are low rent, the script is far below the high standard she was being offered just a year before. That's not to say it's not entertaining in a sensationalistic way but certainly nowhere near her best films. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member another interesting crime drama Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Completely ridiculous melodrama, with Joan as the moll of a jealous thief. Joan is going blind, so goes to a clinic for surgery, and falls in love with her surgeon. The jealous gangster follows, and tough Warner Brothers-style gunplay ensues. Joan's still pretty, but it's marred by her aging, 50s hairstyle. Film 45/81 of Joan's for me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
