A Woman's Face is a 1941 American film noir directed by George Cukor and starring Joan Crawford, Melvyn Douglas and Conrad Veidt. The film is based on the play Il Etait Une Fois by Francis de Croisset.


Plot[edit | edit source]

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.
