Movie Info

Queen Bee offers a stinging portrait of a mad, manipulative woman and chronicles her downfall and that of those around her in this dark drama. On first meeting, Eva Phillips (portrayed with delicious viciousness by Joan Crawford) is the epitome of Southern graciousness and charm. She and her husband, a textile magnate live together in a splendiferous Georgian plantation. Unfortunately, while others are easily beguiled by Mrs. Phillips, her husband knows what a ruthless she-devil she really is and loathes her. To cope with the pain of living with her, he has taken to drinking heavily. Trouble follows when the horrible Eva learns that her husband's sister is engaged to marry the manager of the estate, a man she once loved. Like the proverbial dog in the manger, Eva does all she can to destroy the relationship so she can have the manager back for herself. Unfortunately, she goes too far.

    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.

    my first thought was.... WOW.... big eyebrows! joan crawford def has a set on her and i'm not talking about the usual set i'd be ogling. she did play the archetypal devil woman very well. a very good and convincing movie.... if you can get over the liam gallagher furrows... i half expected her to punch the cameramen out
