Harriet Craig (1950) Joan Crawford, Wendell Corey | Drama

In this video

Harriet Craig is the third film version of George Kelly’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Craig’s Wife. Joan Crawford stars as the title character, a thoroughly selfish woman who prizes her house and her possessions above all else. Harriet Craig is even willing to spoil the business opportunities of her husband Walter (Wendell Corey) to avoid losing her precious home. When her self-involvement causes turbulence in the romantic life of her cousin (K.T. Stevens), and when her husband’s eyes are finally opened to his wife’s true nature, Harriet Craig is at long last hoist on her own petard.

  1. @4:10 ~ "I'll carry a phone around with me" I bet they never would have dreamed back then that "carrying a phone around with me" would be a future reality.
    This is my second fave Joan Crawford movie. She's a superb actress.

  2. I love these old movies. Use to watch these with my Mom. I remember watching the Nanny with Bette Davis I was just a little girl and she scared me so much i had nightmares. That is a good actress. Hopefully they will put more Bette Davis movies on You Tube.

  3. Oh yaaaaaa!! thanks for posting this fine movie. Ms Crawford at her best playing a strong character. Compelling from start to finish and not a four letter word in sight! They don't make 'em like this anymore

  4. Even allowing for the evolution of storytelling and sexual politics over the last 70 years it's still difficult to accept that such an intelligent man could also be such a naive deluded dishrag.

  5. CRYING FOR HER MAN JUST GETTING A NEWS PAPER IN THE MOVIE GOOD ACTING MY MEN LIKE THE NEUGHBOUR WOMEN MORE PRITTY Y DONT NED TO BE JELOUS Y NOW MY MEN ME WITHOUT MAKE UP WAKING UP FINDS ME THE PRITTY ONE OUR CHILDREN THE MOST BEATIFUL TATOOS NO ONE COULD MAKE THEM BETTER AND THEY WONT FADE AWAY

  6. The only MISSTEDP in Joan Crawford's entire acting acting career, but it was a HUGE misstep, was to refuse to be in the sequel to "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte".

  7. She often plays the part of a despicable woman because that is the way she must be in actual life. Also a comment on many persons who don't seem to be bothered by despicable persons in their life.

  8. WOIW what an actor that Wendell Corey was! Before this movie I just knew of him from being with Elvis in "Love M e Tender" and with James Stewart in "Rear Window" but he more than "held his own" dramatically speaking against Joan Crawford in this movie.

  9. Terrible movie and a typical vehicle for an aging Hollywood glamorous movie star and not a actress… Joan was obsessed with looking glamorous in every movie and she did several of these types of movies in the early 1950s and all had her character being a bitch and looking absolutely fabulous.
    I think she had above average acting skills but she was too caught up in her image…

    The ending was ridiculous, did the two not have sex? Was sex something a couple engaged in only to create a baby?

  10. Vincent Sherman, the director of this film and Crawford's lover of 5 years stated that this movie best showcased Crawford as she really was. A woman who was neurotic about her home and reputation, but it was all a thin veneer. He said that she was blissfully unaware that she was basically playing herself here. She never grasped the irony.

  11. Wow. That cut to the bone..I was actually hating Joan Crawford..Spoke volumes to how she’s such a good actress….Even more so the reflections of truth in my own marriage and her father..Damn good.

  12. Movie SO realistic portraying the classic psycho narcissist… Spent Seven years in deep therapy reconstructing my life after twenty years with one. But I love JC she's brilliant at being herself. Loved the movie. Thank you for sharing .
