Joan Crawford Publications
From the 1920s to the
present, Joan Crawford has appeared in hundreds of American and international
magazines and newspapers, which are listed alphabetically below. Click on the pink letters
to go to that page. The pages include (if available) the date of the
article, cover photo, and any additional information such as article length, etc. |
Following the list of publications below is a list of the article transcripts currently available, many accompanied by the original photographs.
Note re listings: To simplify things (for me at least), foreign magazines are listed alphabetically by the very first letter of the title, even if it's an article like der/die/das or la/le/l'. So, while a German-speaker might look under "J" for "Die Junge Dame," I've actually listed that magazine under "D." Conversely, when it comes to English-language titles, I've not used the initial article "The"---so "The Pepsi-Cola World," for instance, is listed under "P."
