Joan, John. Whatev

I always heard about Miss Joan Crawford's last movie, a sad little abortion called Trog, but have never seen it.  I understand the whole mess was so budgetless, Joan had to change clothes in the back of a car.

Had I known that John Hamill (below, seen lounging about the forum) filled a role in it, I might have been more industrious about tracking it down.


  1. The movie sucks, but the beefcake quotient does not disappoint. And neither does Joan. Joan NEVER DISAPPOINTS, DAMMIT.

  2. The very first Joan Crawford movie I ever saw. I was 8 or 9. I remember being very pleased with my little sissy self for having the good taste to stay up late for Joan Crawford. It's also the first time I remember being somewhat embarrassed for an aging diva...

  3. Let me know if you want several gigs worth of John Hamill pics. I can... um... hook you up.

  4. I ADORED this movie as a kid. Would seek it out and watch it at every opportunity. TROG! Hadn't thought about it in years until someone called me a trog a few weeks ago.

  5. I especially love how all of Miss Crawford's outfits sport pockets so she can hide her hands - the dead giveaway of her age and the bane of movie star vanity to be sure.
