Daisy Kenyon (2008)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Mar 11, 2008; DVD Release Date: Mar 11, 2008; Movie Rated: Unrated; Genre: Drama; With: Joan Crawford and Henry Fonda; Distributor: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

Neither one of director Otto Preminger's nor Crawford's best, Daisy Kenyon is nonetheless a racy ''women's picture'' about a Manhattan career gal torn between two lovers. On one side is Fonda's fragile WWII vet; on the other, a married blowhard (Dana Andrews) who greets men and women alike as ''honeybunch'' and ''dewdrop.'' You know the type. Never one for subtlety, Crawford elbows her costars off the screen like she's battling Shaq for a rebound. The EXTRAS are equally racy: A doc reveals that Crawford had the hots for the very married Fonda and didn't much care who knew. B+
