If you are secretly hoping that this bio-documentary (showcasing actress, Joan Crawford) will, indeed, reaffirm this woman's brutally notorious reputation as being "Mommie Dearest" (personified) - Then - I'm sorry, folks - You are in for a major let-down here.

'Cause - On the contrary - This highly-polished, well-researched presentation (from 1996) graciously bestows upon Crawford the "Good Mother/Actress/Citizen" Award of Approval.

Covering Joan's 50-year career as one of Hollywood's most enduring actresses of the 1940s & 50s - "Always The Star" pays respectful homage to Crawford whose tenacity, ambition, and determination firmly cemented her status as being one of Tinseltown's most beloved and admired stars of yesteryear.

Through stills, archival footage, and interviews with those who had worked around her - This celebrity-documentary (of only 54 minutes) reveals Crawford as being the consummate actress who reigned supreme during Hollywood's heyday.

*Note* - In 1977 - Joan Crawford (72 a the time) died of heart failure.
