Most Infamous Moment: Crawford is best known for the depictions of child abuse in Mommy Dearest where she taught her daughter to never use wire hangers.

Crawford is synonymous with scandal. It was rumored that she danced nude for extra money, she had a love for rough sex and that she'd party until the break of dawn with plenty of vodka. Not to mention, Crawford's multiple marriages (three of them allegedly to gay men) made her constant tabloid fodder. Her known rival Bette Davis said Crawford slept her way to the top, men and women. However, Crawford was still regarded as MGM's "Box Office Queen."
