Released in 1941 - In the fine tradition of a classic, Hollywood, glamor film, this Joan Crawford vehicle from MGM delivers a fairly entertaining bit of melodrama that builds quite nicely up to its high-speed climax (on horse-driven sleighs, no less)._____ Joan Crawford plays the facially-disfigured Anna Holm, a conniving member of a ruthless blackmailing ring who are successfully operating within the fair city of Stockholm, Sweden._____ With its story told mainly through flashbacks, Anna is accused of cold-blooded murder. Key witnesses to Anna's activities are individually called into the courtroom in order to give testimony that points decidedly against her innocence to this crime._____ Filmed in glossy b&w, A Woman's Face was competently directed by George Cukor whose other notable films from the 1940s & 50s include Gaslight, Adam's Rib, The Philadelphia Story, and A Star Is Born.
