Best of Everything, The (TCF 1959, Joan Crawford, Hope Lange)

Published

on


Could publishing ever have been this glamorous? Or heartless? Women publishing executives try to have it all in ’50s New York in The Best of Everything. Joan Crawford is tailor-made as the steely boss unnerved by her affair with a married man, and cult-fave former model Parker adds a glossy sheen. Based on Rona Jaffe’s novel.

Joan Crawford’s role as Amanda Farrow, the steely executive, is similar to her work as a board member of Pepsi-Cola. She joined the board after husband Alfred Steele, the company’s chairman, died in 1959.
