Biography

Born Lucille Fay LeSueur in San Antonio, Texas, but christened Joan Crawford by Hollywood, she exemplified the 1920s carefree flapper era to a T. Her beauty and vivacity catapulted her to stardom in the late 1920s in the hugely popular silent classic Our Dancing Daughters. Ever since that point, the resilient actress with the ever expressive eyes, the famous overpainted lips and the will of steel created for herself one of the most legendary and enduring Hollywood personae of all time. Receiving 3 best actress oscar nominations throughout her long career and winning once for the 1945 classic noir Mildred Pierce, joan seemed to personify the ideal american woman of every decade, from the uprorious 1920s right up until her death as a semireclusive corporate widow on may 10th, 1977. Her 5th and last marriage was to Pepsi Cola chairman Alfred Steele, who died in 1959.
