She's the screen's iconic working girl. He's the screen's legendary Everyman. And Mannequin is the only celluloid collaboration of film greats Joan Crawford and Spencer Tracy. Melodrama expert Frank Borzage directs, composing glamorous close-ups of his femme star in this heart-tuggger about a Hester Street girl (Crawford), her con-artist hubby (Alan Curtis) and the shipping magnate (Tracy) smitten by the slum girl. It's a rags-to-riches-to-love's-truer-riches tale, a quintessential example of what the Golden Era called a "woman's picture." And reigning throughout is Crawford, going from factory girl to showgirl to fashion model to woman of means—all in stunning haute couture.
