The young Rosalind Rusell gives a tour de force performance as the obsessive wife in Dorothy Arzner's 1936 critique of patriarchal culture.
An indictment of a system where womanhood is made to deform itself
A masterpiece of double meaning, pulled off with wit and verve.
A film so criminally undervalued and a little forgotten, it's also a much better version of the play than it's glossy and somewhat misogynistic Crawford remake.
It's pioneering director, Dorothy Arzner, was unique in two ways. Not only the only woman director making big studio pics during the Hollywood Golden Age but also a lesbian who made no secret of her sexuality. Most surely a gay icon as well as a feminist one. Her version of Craig's Wife is very much a crack at the male dominated studio system of the time (good on her!!). Arzner's Harriet Craig is also a much more sympathetic character than the one being justly (?!) punished in the remake (which, of course, was produced and directed by men)
