There was a time when both Joan Crawford and Frank Capra were working for the success of the very same man. He was none other than Harry Langdon, one of the most popular comedians of the 1920s. Just like many others, he started his career under the supervision of Mack Sennett and by 1926 he was confident enough to settle his own production company. Many say this was the beginning of his decline. It may be so, but one thing is for sure: it was also the beginning of Joan Crawford’s rise.
