When MGM Learned Of A Lost Joan Crawford Movie, The Studio Reportedly Sent Mobsters To Destroy It

Hollywood icon Joan Crawford officially made her screen debut in 1925 romantic silent movie Lady of the Night. However, the Oscar-winning actress is rumored to have shown up in a handful of films several years before. But these particular films had such career-ending potential that MGM Studios allegedly wanted them destroyed.

During her early attempts to make it in Tinseltown, a young Crawford reportedly agreed to appear in a number of blue movies. Inevitably, this decision came back to bite her on the proverbial when their existence was apparently uncovered during her imperial phase. And then the plot thickened even further.
