Joan Crawford Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Joan's contract with MGM was terminated on June 29, 1943, by both her consent and MGM Studio head Louis B. Mayer, after a string of box-office failures she starred in. She repaid a $100,000 advance she received and cleared out her studio bungalow herself that day. Joan wasn't unemployed for long, though, being hired on July 1 that same year by Warner Brothers with a contract paying her $500,000 for 3 pictures to be completed, the first of which was her Oscar-winning performance in Mildred Pierce (1945).
