30 Stunning Black and White Portraits of Joan Crawford in the 1930s

Joan Crawford (March 23, 1904 – May 10, 1977) is one of the few stars that successfully transitioned from the silent era to talking motion pictures. She not only appeared in an amazing 25 films but she was the top-billed star in each of those films.

Crawford showed a glimpse of what was to come in an early dramatic role in the 1930 film Paid. Joan also ‘clicked’ with the working-class Americans and was labeled “the shop-girl-who-makes-good.” She also showed that she could hang with the legends of Hollywood in the Academy Award winning movie for the Best Picture of 1932 Grand Hotel.

Joan Crawford also teamed up with a man that would ultimately become the love of her life, Clark Gable, in seven films they would make together during in the 1930s. Joan also showed that she was on the verge of branching out and not afraid to take on a different role in the film that revitalized her career in the 1939 film, The Women.

Below is a collection of 30 stunning black and white photos of Joan Crawford in the 1930s. Enjoy!
