Torch Song

Original Theatrical Date: September 30, 1953

Musical star Jenny Stewart functions on two emotional levels: demanding and impossible. Only one person will stand up to Jenny: her accompanist, blinded in the war. But it may be Jenny who can't see, not only her own loneliness but also her chance for happiness.

Joan Crawford, who began her career as a chorus girl in the 1920s, shows she still has the moves (and the gams) to play Jenny 30 years later. There's more to enjoy in this roller-coaster romantic drama: a volcanic Crawford performance and knockout renditions of "Tenderly, Blue Moon" and more standards staged by director Charles Walters (Easter Parade).
