Editorial reviews

"A fascinating film....It's not an issue picture; it's all about the filmmakers' strikingly non-judgemental engagement with mature, sophisticated characters."

3 Top Stars in an Exciting Love Triangle

Joan Crawford was at the top of her game playing Daisy Kenyon, a successful commercial artist who is hopelessly in love with a married man, Dan O'Mara (Dana Andrews). Dan treats her shabbily, cancelling their dates and showing up late. But he is a successful lawyer who travels a lot and considers himself very important, even though he is working in his father-in-law's firm. His wife Lucille (Ruth Warrick of "All My Children" fame)knows that they have a loveless marriage and takes it out on their children Rosamund (Peggy Ann Garner) and Marie.

Enter Peter Lapham (Henry Fonda), a somewhat needy and confused veteran of WW2, who takes Daisy on several dates. He doesn't really turn her on and doesn't have much passion, but he is so nice! She learns that he is a widower who has had some bad experiences during the war. But in the end, she marries Peter, which infuriates Dan.

The rest of this 1947 movie is for you to find out.

In a special feature to the movie, we learn that Joan Crawford was not the first choice for the movie. She was already 40 and was considered too old for the part. Although the producers wanted Gene Tierney, Joan was more bankable since she had just won the Academy Award for "Mildred Pierce," and also she begged for the part. The producers compensated for her age by dark lighting and a young wardrobe. Consequently, they consider it a film noir, but I don't. A film noir to me is a mystery involving at least one murder.

Although Henry Fonda is more famous today, Dana Andrews was more bankable in 1947 after his starring role in "Laura" and several other movies. Also Henry had just finished serving in the military and was somewhat of a question mark in popularity then. All of these facts are interestingly told by a narrator and Otto Preminger's daughters. Otto Preminger was the director of the movie.

Walter Winchell appears as himself in a scene at a famous restaurant. John Garfield, who starred with Joan in "Humoresque," can be seen sitting at a bar in the same restaurant.

This movie will thrill Joan Crawford fans, and it is one of her best roles. She plays a strong, independent woman as always, but this time she is sympathetic.

Joan Crawford movie of film noir style

I purchased the movie Daisy Kenyon because it was a Joan Crawford movie that I have never seen. I think most fans of her movies would be disappointed in this one even though she has two outstanding leading men in the movie: Dana Andrews and Henry Fonda. It's basically a romance film noir that is not very exciting. It centers around a love triangle between the three characters but you don't feel much of anything for any of the three. I wouldn't even bother watching this movie over again. For the true Joan Crawford fans----skip it.

very good movie, well worth a couple of hours

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I saw a piece of this movie & it intrigued me. I found it on e/bay so I bought it. It was very good & showed the conflict of Joan Crawford in her choice between Dana Andrews(married but divorcing) and a returning sailor Henry Fonda. It is well done & uncertain till the end.
