Boy you are right - that was interesting. And sad

 

I also watched an interview with Christina Crawford. And found it interesting that Joan Crawford was turned down by the State of California to adopt a child. They cited Joan's multiple divorces and the fact she did not have a positive relationship with her own Mother and Brother. 

 

So Joan went to a baby broker in Nevada.
