Product Details

The sassy daughter of a local innkeeper, Peggy O’Neill (Joan Crawford) uses her smarts and good looks – not to mention her close personal friendship with President Andrew Jackson (Lionel Barrymore) – to make a scandalous impression on Washington’s power elite in this lavish adaptation of Samuel Hopkins Adams’ bestselling novel. Co-starring a legendary leading man lineup (Robert Taylor, Franchot Tone, Melvyn Douglas and James Stewart), The Gorgeous Hussy earned two 1936 Oscar® nominations (Best Cinematography and Supporting Actress Beulah Bondi as the First Lady) and marked Crawford’s sole sound-era appearance in a costume period piece. Barrymore would reprise his Jackson role in 1952’s Lone Star, a Clark Gable Western that was also the veteran actor’s final screen performance.
