Movie Info

Harriet Craig is the third film version of George Kelly's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Craig's Wife. Joan Crawford stars as the title character, a thoroughly selfish woman who prizes her house and her possessions above all else. Harriet Craig is even willing to spoil the business opportunities of her husband Walter (Wendell Corey) to avoid losing her precious home. When her self-involvement causes turbulence in the romantic life of her cousin (K.T. Stevens), and when her husband's eyes are finally opened to his wife's true nature, Harriet Craig is at long last hoist on her own petard.

    Excellent. A really strong and truthful female character. Will not be sympathetic to all, but I did feel some sympathy for her. Compelling and believable all the way through. Easily as good as Mildred Pierce.

    starring eyebrows... and much like another oldie i've seen recently in which the main player takes the further steps of actually killing people off with her jealousy. however... here harriet craig (crawford/eyebrows) just attempts under hand plotting and planning around her husband. does anyone else know the name of the other film i'm thinking of? it's not a B&W if i remember rightly. anyway... good acting from joan here. also... i thought lucile watson was great in her small part as celia fenwick

    Harriet Craig is yet another Joan Crawford favorite of mine. Joan plays a housewive that is very controlling to the smallest detial. Crawford's husband is dictated to whom he had as friends and more.....things get brought to a horrible state that even the perfect crazed wive might not be able to fix.

    Joan is icy cold in this, its right for the part but hard to work up much sympathy for her or her situation.
