The Week in Entertainment 1977

Actress Joan Crawford, known for her Oscar-winning role in the 1945 film “Mildred Pierce” and the psychological thriller “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane,” among many other film and television roles, died of a heart attack on May 10, 1977. After her death, Crawford was the subject of the book, “Mommie Dearest,” by her adopted daughter Christina, who alleged that her famous mother was abusive. In 1981, the bestseller was made into a film, starring Faye Dunaway.
