OLDIE GOLDIES: Possessed (1947)

This week's featured film on Oldie Goldies is a classic noir film - "Possessed". The film stars Joan Crawford as a love-obsessed, but scorned woman. Of course, you can expect all sorts of "stank face" as she goes mad trying to win her man's affection. In the end, her performance earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

Classic Quote
I seldom hit a woman Louise, but if you don't stop this I'll end up kicking babies!
