"FLAMINGO ROAD" JOAN CRAWFORD, ZACHARY SCOTT FRIDAY 3:30 P.M. EASTERN TCM

3:30 p.m. Eastern--  "Flamingo Road"  Joan Crawford, Zachary Scott, Sydney Greenstreet, Gladys George, David Brian, Virginia Huston

In a rags-to-riches role tailor-made for her,  Joan is a dancer who gets mixed up with various men in society and politics, but not before she makes a powerful enemy of corrupt law enforcement, in the ample form of Sydney Greenstreet.

 

This entertaining noir sudser, directed by the skillful Michael Curtiz, has my beloved Zachary Scott in it, along with lots of colorful histrionics.  Remember, he and Joan made (brief) sparks together in another classic noir, "Mildred Pierce", when he was wealthy, irresponsible "Monty Beragon".   (He's especially good in refined, skinny rich guy roles, a sort of a Franchot Tone with "oomph".....)

Yeah, sharp-eyed @sharke, you're right, the first one has to be from "Mildred" because of her demure little apron-thingy!  Funny, because it popped up in a bunch of images of "Flamingo Road", and I didn't catch it!

 

I think the description of her in "F.R." is that she's a "carnival dancer".....

Love me some Sydney Greenstreet.  Especially when he plays a corrupt politician or someone w/money backing his "puppet."

Yeah, @vsm , I think that would be the English-produced camp/horror classic, "Berserk!".    I think Joan was a crazed circus manager....

your so right ! I watched FR last night and there was the picture ! I think I got it mixed up with Greta Garbo movie seems like her or no telling who I'm thinking of was in a circus and ran away with some man. LOL

 

My apologies to Ms. Oznell.      Too many movies too little time. LOL

 

All I could think of while watching this movie last night was I know JC got friendly with David Brien (Brian)? not sure,but, probably,  Z. Scott I don't think she touched Sydney G. LOL   She worked all sides when she was in

her heyday.   ROFLMAO

 

She sure played a waitress a lot didn't she ? being she was in Mildred with Scott bet she had a romp with him, too. I've read 40 books on her, but, can't remember if they got along.   I still like Harriet Craig the best.

 

 

Here I go again. Ok, who was her husband in Harriet Craig? I remember reading she couldn't stand him, neither could I.   Frederic March ?
