Queen Bee, starring Joan Crawford from 1955 is tailor made for the actress. Joan Craford plays Eva whom has a loveless marriage and family members loathing her from her cold as ice persona. She will do whatever it takes to be the bell of the ball. If you are a fan of Joan Crawford's you will really enjoy this classic that seems to have all the making's of a true classic Crawford drama.

Ehhhh not one of the best in her volume of works but still a go od watch if you enjoy seeing Joan pretty much playing Joan with maybe just a little darker edge to it. Dominating over her entire household and intruding into all of her lives she gets whats coming to her in the end and by the time you get to the end you are glad of it. For me the costumes and jewlery were the most enjoyable part of the film.
