    i watched a REAL awful Crawford film recently called Paid from (1930) my god was that thing awful. not as bad as (1930)'s Montana Moon though also with Crawford and in that one she is simply awful in it. easily her worst film so far that i've seen and is prolly her worst performance of the ones i've seen thus far. now i watched (1931)'s Laughing Sinners and that one i really loved and i really would suggest you all to watch that one. it was a really good one i think. i haven't watched any Davis work recently though just Crawford

    Early Joan is awful because she was really nothing but a stock actress who happened to get promoted by luck. She hit that sweet spot circa 1933-1950-something.

    She's mostly camp beyond that.

    not all of her films with her in them had her awful in them, she was actually really good in Paid but the film was just bad and i disagree she was good in some films before (1933)
    Grand Hotel would be one of them where she was good in for example. but i do agree that she's bad in some of them just not all of them

    oh i forgot to add, that if you want a good one though it's been a long time since i last saw this one (1928)'s West Point i recall being a good one. (1926)'s The Boob yes that is the title is a good one as well. as well as my favorite silent of her's (1927)'s The Unknown With Lon Chaney Sr. that one is a must watch, true those all are silents but those are good ones she did.

    Hm, yeah, well ironically she was someone who seemed to benefit from "The Hayes Code" because she could play it rather well while still being naughty enough for the audience behind the screen.

    ya know in Laughing Sinners and Paid i think she as better looking in those than she was later on after she was given/created her own look cause those were made before she got that look she kept the rest of her life.
