R is for Reel Love: Joan’s Leading Men

R

Movies are usually flocked by audiences because of the “love team” acting in it (admit it, guys!). Yes, people see films because of their stories, but actors and actresses who portray lovers are very important in the success— or failure— of a picture.

Joan Crawford, as one of Hollywood’s long-standing stars, definitely had her share of various leading men. From the studios’ top actors to not-so-famous ones, Joan has hugged, kissed, made love with (at least on-screen), and teamed up with them all.

Take a short trip down memory lane and discover some of Joan’s most memorable (and notable) leading men:
