Love Has Many Faces/Female on the Beach Double Feature!

Lana Turner & Joan Crawford each made their own brand of beach movies: 1965's "Love Has Many Faces" & 1955's "Female on the Beach." Their latter day cougars fight loneliness with booze and beach boys, while emoting up a storm in drag queen outfits and zingy dialogue.

My fun look with lots of pix of MGM's grads in their star vehicles:

Hedy Lamarr was a lousy actress. So exquisite to look at, but the acting ability of a stop sign.

by Anonymousreply 32January 18, 2023 7:19 PM

Lana did have a flat rear and a bit short in the waist as did many petite stars: Judy, Liz, June, etc. Don't think it was uncommon in an era of shorter people, who didn't hit the gym. Always thought Ava had more of the modern ideal of a female body.

As for Hedy Lamarr, she was a beauty, may have been an inventor, but wasn't an inventive actress! Which is why her career went down the tubes after the mid/40's, with one last hurrah with Mr. DeMille!

Lamarr was one of the only actresses the usually discrete Edith Head ever wrote she didn’t like working with. (The others were Claudette Colbert, Paulette Goddard and the young Mary Martin.) Head said that Lamarr was lazy and just wanted to lie on the floor when they were fitting her costumes.

Incidentally, Head wrote it was tricky making Lamar look like a bombshell in the Samson & Delilah clothes, as she didn’t have much of a bust. That’s why there’s a lot of 1-shoulder designs and bare midriff for the character. They had to show skin impact without reverting to the customary cleavage.

The actress who plays poor old lonely Eloise Crandall is the best drunk ever. Just before she gets pushed through the deck railing, she stumbles out of the bedroom and swigs brandy, wipes her mouth on her sleeve and slurs “Drummy? drummy! H’eh?” with a pitch perfect drunken “squeaky” tone in her voice. It’s amazing.

Jan Sterling also steals a few scenes from Joan. Big no-no.

Joan’s bitchcraft in these corny old films is masterful. Critics noted that she was at the very “peak of her frank insincerity”

Joan is a pleasure to watch in almost everything, including the ghoulish, menacing “head bitch in charge” of the 1950’s. I was crazy about her performance as Vienna in Johnny Guitar, and the menacing tramp Eva in Queen Bee. in Craig’s Wife, her character is such a skanky liar and chews up all the others, like that maid portrayed by Ellen Corby when she drops a teacup.

There is also a great scene in The Damned Don’t Cry where she sorts out a friend who ripped her off. When that gal rushes after her protesting, Joan’s character growls over her shoulder “ehhhh shadup!”. Delicious.

R70 Trog is a pretty nonsense plot and some cheesy special effects, but watching a good, clear print of it is like looking through a Time Machine at the UK for that period’s design and technology (I love the cars).

Joan looks pretty good in her colored separates and personal jewelry. I think she changed outfits in a car.

In the early scenes, the young actors portraying the cave explorers who encounter Trog are really fit. I notice that in films of that era.

The acting is pretty bad overall. I love Michael Gough a the irascible skeptic, creeping about, practically twirling a mustache behind a column. He was so campy, cool, fun to watch. He tried to steal scenes from Joan, big “no, no”.

Rick here! I'm always amazed & amused how those MGM gals (Joan, Lana, also Judy & Liz) played parts that mirrored their off-camera lives. In Lana's "Love Has Many Faces," Turner plays a jaded tramp who likes to play with the beach boys in Mexico, Lana's mid-life playground. And in "She-male on the Beach," Joan plays a hard as nails "specialty dancer...the Charleston?" who has a weakness for boy toys... just as Crawford had her '50s mid-life crisis, working through male starlets half her age!

The scenes where Joan “relates” to Trog are the most fun to watch. I always liked how she tried to soothe and cajole him with her voice and “mannered” acting. Also her instructional tone when teaching Trog colors (“Blue, Trog…BLLLUE…”)

Trog was on trend with his brown sneakers, clearly visible in many scenes.

Joan flirts with a British accent “are you still at Uni-vuh-city?” but that trails off. Someone simply said fuck it.

When I was a child in the 1950s I wasn't too aware of who Joan was, except I do remember being brought to a Saturday matinee of The Best Of Everything by my older cousins. But I fell in love with young Diane Baker, not Joan.

Then around 1963, I think, Carol Burnett did a TV special for CBS and announced that Robert Preston would be her guest star and she said something like: "And he has bigger shoulders than Joan Crawford!" I didn't really get it back then as she just seemed like some old faded lady. It wasn't until years later in college in the 70s when I started watching a lot of classic old b&w Hollywood movies, that I got the joke.

Now I'm not sure why I'm telling this little anecdote. But there it is.

"Their progress is rendered no more fetching by the inanities of a hackneyed script and the artificiality and pretentiousness of Miss Crawford's acting style. At the end, the guilty party is revealed in a ridiculous way. Jan Sterling, Cecil Kellaway and Natalie Schafer are the supporting players you may remotely suspect."

(Bosley Crowther, NYT)

I've never been much of a Crawford fan and I like how Crowther succinctly summed up her acting style. Even at her best she could *almost* be real and down to earth, but not 100%. Anyway, she usually wasn't boring, But dig that poster!

R95 Reviewers also considered this period of Joan’s career the peak of her “frank insincerity”, in roles like Queen Bee, Harriet Craig, The Best of Everything.

For some reason there is something pleasurable about watching her dispatch other flawed, weaker characters. in Female on the Beach, she basically pisses on Jan Sterling’s head to show dominance. Sterling’s chirpy delivery reminds me of a songbird perching naively on a crocodile. Joan’s dismissive responses almost deflate Sterling (“Miss Rawlinson, I don’t think I’d care for that…”). I also really liked “ oh…so this is wear the loser tells the winner she’s making a big mistake..”

When Jeff Chandler’s Drummond Hall offers up his friendly, greasy “how do you like coffee?”, Joan growls “alone”. I also liked her character’s disclosure “I have a lonnnng list of dislikes. It’s getting longer.”

[quote]TCM alert! They will be showing Lana's "Love Has Many Faces" at midnight. Sadly, it will not be followed up by "Female on the Beach." Instead it will be followed by Joan's other insane '50s epic, "Queen Bee!" Here's Lana's co-star, Hugh O'Brien's speedo, in a "Faces" scene!

Yes, but it's PRECEDED by "Written on the Wind" and "Valley of the Dolls." This is all part of "Friday Summer 'Camp'" on TCM.

So TCM is treating Douglas Sirk’s Written on the Wind like it’s camp, now?

Written on the Wind is camp. It's not JUST camp, but it's camp.

Written on the Wind has always been high camp, are you serious? Dorothy Malone's insane dancing that kills her father? Robert Stack being informed that he has "A WEAKNESS?!?" It's delicious.
