You're gonna march yourself UP THOSE STAIRS. . .

How does she keep those eyebrows from running in the pool?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 707/24/2011

You will STAY IN HERE until you are ready to apologize!

I'm not mad at you, I'm mad at the DIRRRRRRT!

Ovation always cuts the abortion scene, when they air it.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 1507/24/2011

When you polish the floor you have to move the tree!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 1607/24/2011

I already got this on DVD, bitches!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 1707/24/2011

Was Joan a lesbian?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 1807/24/2011

I have it on DVD but Ovation is showing it in HD. Paramount needs to get this bitch out on Blu-Ray, pronto!!!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 1907/24/2011

"Was Joan a lesbian?"

Well, did you see the way she tore into that bush?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 2007/24/2011

I brought you a refresher, Uncle Greg.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 2107/24/2011

You love to make me hit you.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 2607/24/2011

The sword. . .cuts both ways. . .

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 2707/24/2011

Smell you, R17. I'VE got it playing in my head almost all the time without the need for your external amplification devices!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 2807/24/2011

It's a shame we don't have the actual footage from The Secret Storm to see. . .

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 2907/24/2011

Christina: There's a liquor store to the right.

Joan Crawford: I should've known you'd know where to find the boys and the booze.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3007/24/2011

Joan Crawford: [after giving Christina a pearl necklace as a gift]: Oh, and Tina - if you don't get this part, for Chrissakes, don't hock 'em

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3107/24/2011

Is this an institution of learning or a teenage brothel?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3207/24/2011

Chadwicke has an IMPECCABLE reputation! Your daughter, on the other hand. . .

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3307/24/2011

I think the opening of the film is just perfect. The percolating coffee, the ice cubes in the bowl, the closet, her walking down that staircase in the quiet, early morning, the signing of the photos, the drive to the studio, and finally the "look up" when they call her to come on the set.

I always get such a kick out of it.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3407/25/2011

Paramount needs to re-release MD on DVD with the deleted scenes. That's right bitches, did you know there are deleted scenes? No one has ever seen them and they've been locked in a vault for 30 years. Why Paramount doesn't do this, I have no idea, because the DVD would be a really hot seller.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3507/25/2011

Let's go!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3607/25/2011

Joan's Brentwood manse is my dream home. I loved that house, and the walk-in closet is still the best one I have ever seen, on film or in real life.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3707/25/2011

Do you know what those deleted scenes are, R35? I would snap up a second copy in a heartbeat if they put those out there!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3807/25/2011

Would you put a great big portrait of yourself in the living room, R37?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 3907/25/2011

Oh, I am going to tell. I AM. I am going to TELL.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4007/25/2011

You EMBARRASSED ME! In front of a REPORTER! *grabs tits*

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4107/25/2011

I'm bigger than you, I am faster than you... and I will always BEAT you.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4207/25/2011

Christopher: As usual, she has the last word ...

Christina: Does she? DOES she?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4307/25/2011

I'll get the CARDS out on time--OK?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4407/25/2011

The cue cards are too GODDAMN HIGH!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4507/25/2011

Do YOU think it's clean?

DO YOU THINK IT'S CLEAN?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4607/25/2011

My babies. Where are my babies?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4707/25/2011

QUITTER?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4807/25/2011

I fix all of my uncles' drinks this way.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 4907/25/2011

And your room looks like a two-dollar a week furnished room in some two-bit backwoods town in Oklahomaaaaaaa!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5007/25/2011

She can't. My character is only 28 years old.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5107/25/2011

The mansion was not exactly a replica of Joan's actual Brentwood home. The staircase was based, somewhat, on the staircase from the set used in Queen Bee, one of her iconic "scary bitch" movies. There is a scene in THAT movie where the real Joan regally descends the stairs in her black strapless Jean Louis gown. That scene was relatively copied in Mommie Dearest.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5207/25/2011

[R47] They were thoughtless, selfish, spoiled children. And now they won't disturb you when you need YOUR rest.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5308/29/2011

Times are tough; still I treat you to a lovely evening, and I get smart-alek BACKTALK.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5408/29/2011

"But Mommy, it's [italic]bleeding![/italic]

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5508/29/2011

I love the scene where she is washing her face with ice cubes.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5608/29/2011

I dare any of you bitches to...

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5708/29/2011

What about the socks?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5808/29/2011

I can handle... the socks.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 5908/29/2011

We've had to let Helga go....

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6008/29/2011

Just gimme a drink and raise the GODDAMNED cue cards!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6108/29/2011

That's what he calls you when he can't remember your name...

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6208/29/2011

[R62] Well played!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6308/29/2011

You first...

She looks like she has a snapper flange.. you would lose all your fingers in that!!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6408/29/2011

It's the SCRIPTS!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6508/29/2011

Hollywood royalty.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6608/29/2011

It's the GODDAMNED SCRIPTS!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6708/29/2011

Ahhhh, but nobody ever said life was FAIR, Tina. I'm bigger and I'm faster. I will ALWAYS beat you!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6808/29/2011

She negotiates everything like a goddamn Hollywood agent!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 6908/29/2011

You know THAT'S NOT TRUE.....

(maybe just a little true....)

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7008/29/2011

I don't ask much from you, GIRL!!!!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7108/29/2011

No, listen to me L.B., I have been BEGGING you... begging you for a good script. Now you've always given me my share of bad movies because you knew I'd make them work. Well, I can't keep doing it, L.B.!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7208/29/2011

And the cross-eyed Kabuki ninja terrified another generation of Crawford fans!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7308/29/2011

Could you....call?

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7408/29/2011

UNDERSTAND....

The first word I ever heard out of any of you was that word...understand.

There'll be time enough to understand, when I'm old....if I ever am old.

Oh, but not now.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7508/29/2011

Darling, rare meat is good for you. The doctor said so.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7608/30/2011

"Why must EVERYTHING be a CONTEST?" %0D

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7708/30/2011

What the hell is going on in the scene where Tina makes the cocktails for her "uncle"? Is she trying to seduce him? It's really bizaare and I don't blame Joan at all for sending the kid away after that.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7808/30/2011

[quote]Tina... ...if you don't get this part, for Christ's sake, don't hock 'em.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 7908/30/2011

I'm mad at the dirt.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8008/30/2011

I will ALWAYS beat you.

Beat you....

Beat you...

Beat you...

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8108/30/2011

I bet that three headed shower was completely cutting edge at the time.

Love that hot daddys entrance too.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8208/30/2011

This time...we'll make an exception. You may KEEP...the doll, AND the bracelet.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8308/30/2011

[quote]What the hell is going on in the scene where Tina makes the cocktails for her "uncle"?

Her reference to "all my uncles' drinks" was a cunty passive-aggressive way to let the guy know how many other guys Joan fucks. Joan was none too pleased.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8408/30/2011

Also, Joan could tell that Christina was taking an interest in sex. She didn't want Christina ending up a slut like her, so she sent her to the Chadwick School. Of course that didn't work out as intended ("I am going to TELL!"), so off to convent school.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8508/30/2011

Well, you are SUPPOSED to pet the animals in a barn!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8608/30/2011

Miss Connie should have been flogged savagely until she bled for telling on poor Tina.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8708/30/2011

But it's got all this red juice when I press down on it.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8808/30/2011

Damn it, Perinos is MY place!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 8908/30/2011

I'd rather you go bald to school than looking like a tramp!

YOU BE QUIET!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9008/30/2011

If you watch that scene carefully, R90, you'll notice that Tina's hair keeps changing length after Joan cuts it! Very bad editing.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9108/30/2011

I can handle the socks.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9208/30/2011

You finger it out!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9308/31/2011

Barbara, PlEASE!!!!!!!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9408/31/2011

My favorite: "Don't fuck with my fellows - this aint my first time at the rodeo!"

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9508/31/2011

[R82] Yeah, I would have done Greg in a second. He looked good there.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9609/01/2011

Wasn't that a sexy scene R96. He did look good and that entrance with a towel and then a hot kiss....

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9709/01/2011

Flirting can be...taken the wrong way.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9811/02/2012

RE 37 & 52 - There were actually 3 Crawford houses used in the film. Joan's actual house , at 426 N. Bristol Ave., in Brentwood was extensively remodeled in 2006, and now looks like any typical faux Mediterranean mansion in the neighborhood. For the film , the home, in Bel Air, used as the front of the house and yard (on a small hill) is at 417 Amapola Lane. You see it when Joan's out jogging, with Carol Ann following next to her, up the driveway, when Joan's out of breath, and later, when Joan drives Christina back after her Chadwick 'incident'. The other home used as the backyard, and pool, (" you lost again") is a few blocks away , at 355 Mapleton Dr. , in Holmby Hills . It is across the street from the Playboy Mansion. The interior of the house, with small 'outdoor' areas - like the rose garden (" Tina...bring me the axe") were all sounstage sets , built at Paramount Studios, in Hollywood. And by the way, the furnishings in the film ( blue velvet sofas, etc.) were nothing like the William Haines designed interiors Crawford really had. His furniture, if you can find it, sells for thousands more now, than back in the day.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 9911/03/2012

Jesus CHRIST!

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10011/03/2012

I always forget that scene when the journalist is in the house doing a story on Joan and then Joan starts beating Tina. So uncomfortable to watch. Dear Lord. Good movie though.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10111/03/2012

Carol Ann had the worst aging makeup I have ever seen in a movie.

BTW, and I know most DLers probably know this already, but Carol Ann and Gregg never existed in real life. They were composite characters of several assistants (Carol Ann) and Joans's second husband Phil Terry and hotshot LA attorney Greg Bautzer (Greg) who were concocted to avoid lawsuits from the real people who were still living when the movie was made.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10211/03/2012

It's on Netflix Watch Instantly.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10311/03/2012

Good night, Joan.

Please don't leave, because if you do, you'll never come back in again, no matter what you say, or ask, or do.

I'll always wish you well, Joan. And I'll only speak well of you.

Please don't go! Don't leave me here alone. Please.

If you're acting, you're wasting your time. If you're not, you're wasting mine.

I'm not acting! I'm not acting.

Good night. Good luck. Goodbye.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10411/03/2012

Did you scrub the bathroom floor today? DID YOU?

Yes, Mommie.

Yes, Mommie what?

Yes, Mommie Dearest.

When I told you to call me that, I wanted you to mean it.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10511/03/2012

SCRUB, Christina. SCRUB.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10611/03/2012

Discipline, mixed with love, is such a very good recipe

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10711/03/2012

[quote]And your room looks like a two-dollar a week furnished room in some two-bit backwoods town in Oklahomaaaaaaa!

I don't recall that line. Is it real?

My favorite observation in the movie is that "The Secret Storm" kitchen set is the Happy Days kitchen set! I noticed it the first time I saw the movie.

by Gonna have a good Sunday nightreply 10811/03/2012

R108, that's what Joan is saying while she beats Christina with the wire hanger!

"No... wire... hangers. What's wire hangers doing in this closet when I told you: no wire hangers EVER? I work and work 'till I'm half-dead, and I hear people saying, "She's getting old." And what do I get? A daughter... who cares as much about the beautiful dresses I give her... as she cares about me. What's wire hangers doing in this closet? Answer me. I buy you beautiful dresses, and you treat them like they were some dishrag. You do. Three hundred dollar dress on a wire hanger. We'll see how many you've got if they're hidden somewhere. We'll see... we'll see. Get out of that bed. All of this is coming out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. You've got any more? We're gonna see how many wire hangers you've got in your closet. Wire hangers, why? Why? Christina, get out of that bed. Get out of that bed. You live in the most beautiful house in Brentwood and you don't care if your clothes are stretched out from wire hangers. And your room looks like some two-dollar-a-week furnished room in some two-bit back street town in Okalahoma. Get up. Get up. Clean up this mess. "

Here's a fun find: the audio from Joan's [italic]Secret Storm[/italic] guest stint.
