A Woman's Face


The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Anna Holm (Joan Crawford) is a terribly disfigured Swedish woman and small-time criminal in Stockholm. Her terrible luck and resulting emotional tumult has left her unable to sustain relationships and ultimately pushes her to a life of blackmailing schemes and ennui. A young doctor (Melvyn Douglas) gives her the opportunity to regain some semblance of beauty and, with it, a chance at love. Will she be able to come to terms with her past and embrace a second chance at happiness?
