Today in Texas History – March 23

From the Annals of the Stars – In 1905, Lucille Fay Lesueur better known to the world as Joan Crawford was born in San Antonio.  Crawford’s father abandoned the family before her birth and her step-father and mother raised her.  She started her career as a dancer before transitioning to silent films.  She was one of the few silent film actors who made a smooth transition to “talkies.”  She appeared in more than 50 movies, winning the Academy Award for her role in Mildred Pierce.  Red first remembers her in the camp classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
