Overview

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.

    Queen Crawford

    This movie is a must see for anyone who thought 'Mommie Dearest' was far fetched. Joan Crawford's ''acting'' in this film was very entertaining. Her characterization of Eva reminds one of the current daytime soap opera villianess. Gather a group of friends together and enjoy- you don't have to be a fan of Miss Crawford or old movies to find the joy in this film.
